List of Top Hidden Dealer Incentives
Hidden dealer incentives are cash rebates given to dealers by the manufacturer each time they sell a particular model.
These are usually given to dealers to help increase sales on lower demand models. Dealers don't want car shoppers knowing about these incentives because they want to keep as much of it to themselves as they can. Savy car shoppers can use this knowledge to demand a lower price.
Hidden incentives is one way dealers are able to sell cars below invoice. Not all dealers will pass the incentives over to the consumer, so it pays to get quotes from multiple dealers. Use our Car Buying Method to ensure you're getting the lowest price.
