If a GTFCU member goes to a preferred dealer in search of a new car, the salesman will show the member their invoice price for the vehicle. The member can then make an offer based on his knowledge of what the dealer paid for the car.

This program gives members a distinct advantage when negotiating the price on a new car and is a valuable perk.
