Colorado Credit Unions Select TM for No-Haggle Car Buying


Colorado credit union members now have a new non-traditional, more comfortable and convenient way to shop for cars, access credit union financing and purchase vehicles at pre-negotiated, no haggle prices. TM provides credit union members unparalleled access to thousands of new and used vehicles in Colorado with all the services necessary to select and purchase a vehicle.

Colorado Credit union members using TM will experience the ease of virtual car shopping, direct access to credit union financing options, save vehicles in their virtual garage, schedule a test drive or speak to a representative who can provide them with all the information they require to make an informed buying decision. This can all be done from the convenience of their home or office vs. the traditional and often inconvenient and uncomfortable approach of physically going to a dealership.

Credit Union of Denver and Elevations Credit Union, two prominent Colorado credit unions, have already joined forces with TM, with more credit union participation planned for the near future.

President and CEO of the Credit Union of Denver, Keith Cowling, commented, “The decision to partner with TM was simple. We are always looking to provide our members with higher levels of service. This new online shopping experience offers a stress-free way for our members to shop for and obtain the car of their choice.”

According to Craig Burkhard, EVP/Chief Operations Officer of Elevations, “The new alliance allows us to assist our members with their auto buying experience on a completely different level. The process of obtaining a loan and buying a car becomes much simpler and convenient.”

The virtual service aggregates inventory by partnering with quality organizations such as AutoNation Direct and Automotive Avenues thereby providing the member a new and more comprehensive method to shop for a vehicle.

Candace Taylor, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for WhereMembersDrive TM , is excited about the partnership.

“Automotive Avenues and AutoNation Direct are a perfect match and help fulfill the brand promise of WhereMembersDrive TM. Automotive Avenues has a long standing history of serving Colorado Credit Unions and their members and employs non-commissioned sales consultants. AutoNation Direct helps facilitate the value of WhereMembersDrive TM by providing a single point of contact regardless of brand or geographic area and access to thousands of vehicles. Both companies are founded upon the same value propositions that make TM the premier credit union auto buying service: one stop shopping for new and used vehicles; pre-negotiated, no haggle prices; high touch and high service; full transparency.”

Bill Green, President for Automotive Avenues, and Ron Frey, President and CEO of AutoNation Direct are pleased at the early participation from Colorado credit unions and are also excited about the future. “This partnership brings value to the member they can’t find through a traditional dealership. The interactive service provides a platform where members can participate in a customer centric automotive experience that is transparent, efficient, and convenient.“ TM is officially launching June 15th 2009.
