So, I purchased a Lexus GL460 from my local Northside Dominion Lexus dealership 2 years ago and had it finance through Toyota financial at 10.5%.

As a long time USAA member for over 50 years I have insured over 20 cars and actually purchased several cars with USAA and I have always enjoyed the experience until now.......recently I decided to use the new Car Buying Service and purchase a new auto and to use a baseball analogy we have struck ou...
Worst experience EVER!! First of all, I started using USAA's car buying servicer in 2010. Before that i was using the Costco program. Since 2010 I have made a few new car purchases with USAA's program and it was the best experience i have ever had. You would go on the website, build the exact car yo...
