When Are the Best Times to Purchase a New Vehicle?

Buying a New Vehicle When are the best times of the year to buy a new car? There are several key times when you’re likely to get a bargain.

First, consider the make and model you’re interested in, and watch for the changeover from old to new. Typically, this occurs during August or September, when the latest models arrive on the lots. Therefore, the older models become more of a bargain, price-wise.

Next, there’s something about the end of each month that matters when it comes to car sales. Many shoppers can get a good deal if and when they connect with a salesman or saleswoman who has a quota to fill and that one last purchase– from you– helps them meet their sales quota. So, if possible, consider buying your new car during the last week of the month.

Also, when the year changes over like it recently did, from 2016 to 2017, that’s another key time of the year to buy a car. The last week of the year– the last week in December– is a particularly good time to go car shopping if you’re looking for a great deal.

Certain months of the year are busier than others at car dealers. A lot of that has to do with the weather, as it’s easier to shop when it’s warm and sunny outside. Therefore, consider purchasing a vehicle when few people are shopping– a cold, wintry day is likely to play in your favor for getting a bargain. When the weather’s nice out, though, pick times of the week when the dealership is less busy, such as a Wednesday.
