SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This is the week to shop for a new car or truck, thanks to car shopping website Edmunds.com's Car Week event. That is especially true for shoppers in the New York metro area who can participate in one of two Price Promise(SM) "dealership takeovers" occurring this weekend.
Edmunds.com will take over Planet Honda in Union, NJ on Saturday, June 14, and Advantage Hyundai in Hicksville, NY on Sunday, June 15, to give customers independent car shopping advice and to price all new cars in stock at upfront, no-haggle prices. Throughout the takeovers, Edmunds.com's staff of car buying experts will be available at an "Ask Ed" bar to help shoppers feel confident about their upcoming purchase, validate prices and answer any questions car shoppers might have about their purchases.
The free service comes at the conclusion of Edmunds.com's Car Week, in which nearly 300 dealers are offering their entire inventories at or below Edmunds.com's True Market Value® prices -- meaning shoppers can save thousands off sticker price without wasting a second on negotiating.

"Shopping for a car can be a stressful, time-consuming process, so we are launched Car Week to create an easier and better experience for both shoppers and dealers," said Edmunds.com Chief Executive Officer Avi Steinlauf. "Car Week allows shoppers to learn how to make car buying easier while getting a great price on the right car, from the right dealer, with a lot less hassle."
To kick-off the first-ever Car Week, Edmunds.com enlisted the help of car enthusiast and comedian Adam Carolla, as documented in the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mij2e5W_yM
Carolla manned Edmunds.com's free Live Help service, which provides advice to people around the country as they shop for a vehicle. Car shoppers can continue to get expert car advice by calling Edmunds.com's free Live Help Line at 1-855-782-4711, via email at email@example.com or by simply by texting their questions to ED411 – a new service launched in time for Car Week.
