Ford and Chevy May Increase Incentives on Muscle Cars
Ford and Chevrolet are enganged in a war to see who can sell more muscle cars in 2010. When car manufacturers compete for higher sales, it's good news for consumers because you can expect incentives to rise.
In 2009, the Ford Mustang barely outsold the Chevrolet Camaro. It was a close race and Ford took first place due to a 60% increase in sales for December compared to the month before.
However, Chevrolet only introduced the new Camaro in April of 2009, so it had fewer months to tally up its numbers. In actuality, the new Camaro outsold the Mustang every month since it was introduced. You can be sure Chevrolet wants to be the #1 seller of muscle cars in 2010.
If you're interested in buying one of these cars, keep your eyes out for increased incentives in 2010.

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.
