I only have a minute to respond, but:

I’d happily use Costco’s car-buying service when it’s time for me to buy a new car. I bought that VW (a 2011 Jetta TDI) for a totally reasonable price—I emailed dealers’ fleet and internet departments, I pushed hard and was always willing to walk away. I got a very good price, and it was not worth the effort.

Paying $500-$1000 more than I did through Costco would totally have been worth it.

I bought my current car from a dealer in Colorado who offered a low no-bargaining price for members of the enthusiast forum I had been participating in. That process was much better, though I was still at the dealer for hours when I picked up the car. Getting a similar deal through Costco would have been even better. I vote yes on reputable car-buying services!
