Buying 101: What you thought was true … may not beFebruary 5, 2010
People always say that it’s better to “wait until the end of the year, that’s when dealerships are pratically giving cars away.” This might have been true in the past, however vehicles are being produced and delivered to dealers all throughout the year. “It varies from month-to-month, depending on model and production dates,” according to Jason Gordon, Sales Manager at Olathe Nissan. That’s not to say you won’t get a great deal on a 2009 vehicle … you will! Rebates are greater and incentives are stronger. Manufacturers want to rid dealers of older cars to bring in the new models. Of course, the only problem with waiting is that a smaller selection of inventory is available to you. What you see is what you get. Edmunds.com is a great place for people to browse for insider tips and suggestions. Gordon recommends dealing with an internet manager. It’s more efficient, saves time and gives you information before stepping foot in the dealership. Any tips you want to share with the rest of us? Or ask me a question about buying a car?
