Finding a Vehicle
Finding your next vehicle is easy with Alliance’s search network and member discounts. In partnership with local dealerships in California and North Carolina, the ACU Complete Auto Network offers members discounts and special pricing on new and used vehicles. Members who simply show their member card or Alliance debit or credit card are eligible to receive guaranteed pricing below mid-Kelley Blue Book value. The auto network is an easy way to save time and money searching for your perfect vehicle.

You can also search for cars using the Alliance AutoSMART database, a website that allows you to research different makes and models, locate a dealership, and find resources about each vehicle. This tool makes comparing your options easy, and helpful when locating a vehicle
