Good Deals on Hybrids Likely Soon

February 11, 2010

Honda Lease DealsFord quietly announced that it was offering brake fixes for its Fusion and Mercury Milan Hybrids just a few days after Toyota reported that 2010 Prius models were suffering from a similar problem.

The Ford Fusion, Milan and Prius have been wildly popular since they were released, with the Prius leading all cars sold in the U.S. in fuel economy since it's launch. The brake issues in all three models have had fixes announced, and customers are advised to bring their cars in as soon as possible.

That doesn't mean that you should turn away from these hybrids. They've received rave reviews and are great choices for smaller families or mid-career professionals looking to save money on long trips or daily commutes.

What may benefit a potential buyer is to wait while the recalls are completed. There is a sweet spot between when the fixes are proven to work out well, and when the companies need to entice concerned consumers back to their cars.

Both Ford and Toyota are likely to increase incentives on their vehicles in the next couple of months in a race to become the #1 sales leader for 2010.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
