Our Story Advocating For Car Buyers

Mike Rumple founded YCBA to make consumer car buying experiences stress-free and transparent.

Our Story Advocating For Car Buyers.  As a former car salesman and father of three, Mike quit the dealership and created a business where advocating for the car buyer is the only mission.

Linda, a former customer, inspired: Confessions of a Former Car Salesman, our story. 

The many consumers searching for better car buying experiences motivated us to bring expert car buyers and negotiators on board to join our mission.

Our expert advocates have taken on the task of revolutionizing the car buying experience for consumers and are dedicated to making car buying and selling painless and less time-consuming.

Our Story Advocating For Car Buyers

Our Mission

Our mission is based on our values of honesty and service to others.  Our clients know we are their advocates because we aren’t afraid to make dealers earn their business. We demand transparency and we embolden our clients to be in control of their financial decisions. After all, car purchases and leases are big financial commitments.

Independent car buying advocates are dedicated to the consumer experience.  There are a growing number of brokers and look-a-likes out there who claim the same. 

However,  we know that how we negotiate and our methods for saving consumers time and sanity, are of upmost importance.

From mom’s, CEO’s, to widows and first time buyers, our independent car buying advocates do deals thousand of miles away or right in their local home town. It’s our goal that every consumer will know about experts like us who can come along side and teach them how to get a great deal or take the burden off their plate entirely.

If you watch some of YCBA's media segments, Mike Rumple teaches car buyers and says that there is no magic to what they do but there are people out there who can get deals by following his advice yet still rather have YCBA do the leg work. I received a free consultation phone call. They gave me a rundown of the current new car buying market; none of that information was anything I didn't already know. I was hoping they would be able to leverage their experience and skills in the auto sale industry, but I was told the best they could do was MSRP which was a deal I already had on the table, and they advised me to take it. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who don't / don't want to do much research or want to be hands-off in the car buying process. I'm just one of those outside the parameters of their customer base. Only feedback I would give for improvements would be to explicitly post on their website that the best they can do for buying new cars is MSRP; that would have saved me from filling out an interest form, phone call, and this review.

I've been a fan of Chevy Dude on YouTube, and during one of his segments on buying a 2022 used car, YCBA (Your Car Buying Advocate) was mentioned. I was delighted to find out about this type of service. I checked it out and spoke to Mike, telling him details of what I was trying to accomplish. In a highly challenging market, I was referred to YCBA's named Mark. I gave Mark the assignment of locating a low-mileage quality used car in one week. He achieved this in only three days (with only 800 miles)! I was impressed with his honest feedback (especially when he told us that it's impossible to get a new car within our timeline), responsiveness, and professionalism. I would utilize his services again.Thank you again, Mark!

Professional. Experienced. Knowledgable. Outstanding service. 2019 Cadillac CTS V-Sport Premium Luxury. I had been looking for a very particular model and version of this car. After a couple of months of searching I realized I needed some assistance to find the exact car, which likely would not be found locally. I found Your Car Buying Advocate online, read the reviews, and decided to call them. Mike, Martin and I had a call to discuss what I was looking for, and what our shared expectations would be. We agreed that we were a great fit. Martin helped my find the perfect car out of state. Martin handled all of the dealer negotiations on my behalf. They referred e to a transport company, who delivered the car to my door at a very reasonable cost. Martin also researched and advised me with the best way to sell my 2011 Cadillac CTS. From start to finish Martin successfully managed a great purchase. He was always available for my calls or texts The best car buying experience I have had.

Recently worked with Mike to find a Jeep Grand Cherokee L in a very specific trim with the rare V8, and he was able to find a source a good deal in just a couple of days, and negotiated a price myself and my wife were very happy with. Thanks for the help Mike - the Jeep has been great so far!

After a frustrating experience test driving 3 different new cars, I just gave up & went home. There had to be a better way, an independent consultant to take over my headaches and find the perfect 2022 car for me. After a quick search I found Your Car Buying Advocate! A free no pressure call and they took it all over! I relaxed while they did all the leg work finding a car based on my exact needs. 6 days later and I closed on the perfect car only 20 minutes away! Thanks Mike & Joe!

Mike helped my wife and I locate and purchase an out-of-state, 2020 Sienna earlier this year, and I’m 100% convinced that Mike saved us hundreds between the trade-in and the financing. We had issues with the dealership, but Mike was invaluable as our voice. He uses car dealers’ own tricks against them, got us more for our trade-in than I would’ve been able to, and got a financing rate that was lower than my credit union’s best rate. I will 100% be using his services again.
