Summer kicks off the “big sales event” season for car dealers from coast to coast.
After researching car incentives for over 10 years, I’ve discovered that summer is the absolute best time to buy a car. If you want to avoid paying full sticker price, summer season is a great time to get a good deal on a new or used car. Here are some reasons why you should consider buying a car this summer:
Summer season means big savings!
Summer is generally the best time to buy a new car. Automakers typically set seasonal sales goals for dealers, and, in turn, dealers set sales goals for salespeople. Sizable bonuses are on the line for dealerships that attain those targets.
Summer will also have brand new left over inventory from the previous year. These are often the best deals because you not only get a new car, you get a huge discount, and a warranty that starts at the time of purchase and not the time of manufacture.
Auto manufacturers always take advantage of Summer to showcase some of their best deals.
You’ll find great lease terms, low-interest financing deals, and some cash back incentives across a wide range of categories and models. It’s always a good idea to check with your local dealership to confirm that these deals are available in your area, since manufacturer-backed lease, finance, and cash back offers can vary around the country.
