Best New Car Incentives, Lease Deals for May 2015

May 2015 Car DealsMay is typically a slower month when it comes to car sales, which presents a good opportunity for a great deal. Manufacturers have been raising incentives to keep up with rivals. Many dealers are desperate to get rid of their remaining 2014 models, especially now that the new 2015 models have taken over dealer showrooms.

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

Volkswagen has increased incentives lately while 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 and Edmunds Price Promise 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.
