Smart Offers First Ever Customer Incentive

June 18, 2009

Smart ForTwoWhen the Smart ForTwo was first introduced last year, they were selling like hotcakes.

Now it's looking like the party is over. Sales of the Smart ForTwo fell nearly 60% in May compared to last year.

Smart now must offer its first incentive ever to get more sales. The incentive isn't that great, but it's better than nothing.

Smart is offering 4.2% financing for up to 60 months. The program is good through the end of July.

If you've been considering a Smart vehicle, contact a dealership to see if they have extra in stock. You might be able to get a discount on top of the financing incentive.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best 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.
