Best New Car Incentives, Lease Deals for September 2016

September 2016 Car DealsSeptember and Labor Day are great times to buy a new car. Vehicle sales should continue to be strong compared to past years, but a recent slowdown means that car manufactuers are paranoid about losing market share - this is a good opportunity to get deals - especially around the labor day weekend. Car dealerships are also desperate to get rid of remaining 2015 leftover inventory as soon as possible (yes, there is still some leftover inventory from that model year). Ford is testing different incentive packages, and many car makers have hidden rebates that result in as much as 28% off MSRP (Chrysler 200).

2017 models have started arriving in droves, which means better deals on the 2016 models.

The average incentive per vehicle is currently around $3,000. There's some great deals and large rebates on popular models such as the Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, Kia Forte, Chevrolet Impala, Cadillac ATS, and Chevrolet Malibu.

Volkswagen continues to suffer after being caught lying about their emissions data - you might be able to get incredible deals this month on vehicles that are still allowed for sale. Other brands such as Hyundai, GM, and BMW continue to offer a slew of lease deals and 0% financing.

You can find several vehicles with leases starting at under $300 per month with $0 down payment.

(Note: incentives can vary greatly by region; these figures may not be accurate in your local area. Always verify with your local dealers)

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
