List of "Hidden" Dealer Incentives for June 2009

June 18, 2009

Dealer incentives are basically cash bonuses given to dealers by the manufacturer when they sell a particular car.

Dealer incentives are usually not made public so it's difficult for car buyers to find out this information.

We've compiled a list of the top dealer incentives being offered until the end of June.

Note that these are not customer rebates. they are cash incentives given to dealer in order to help them sell cars. They may or may not pass these incentives to car buyers, but you can use it as a negotiating tool to get prices below invoice cost.

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.
