Dodge Offers Large Incentives for December
If you're in the market for a new Dodge, there's no better time to buy than now. The automaker has just introduced an assortment of new incentives, which are going to last until January 4th. Consumer rebates, 0% APR and low-interest loan rates, and factory-to-dealer cash on remaining 2009 models are the major bonuses being offered.
In some cases Dodge has even approved a combination of rebates and low-interest loans - something that rarely happens in car sales.
The best of these deals are for 2010 models, but there are several great incentives on 2009 models as well - especially leftover vehicles. Where there's a choice between a rebate and a low-interest loan, in most cases you're better off taking the rebate. Here's a closer look at what Dodge is offering right now:

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar 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.
