Cars With the Biggest Hidden Rebates

November 4, 2010

Hidden RebatesThere's one incentive that's not advertised to consumers, and it's often the best incentive out there. It's called a "hidden rebate" or factory-to-dealer cash.

The manufacturer offers the hidden rebate to dealers as a way of helping them sell or lease cars.

The rebate is not offered on all makes and models - it might be offered one month, and not another, and the amount can vary widely, depending on how badly the manufacturer wants to help sell a particular model vehicle.

Dealers can use marketing support money almost any way they want if it helps sell cars. However, most if not all is given to customers as a price discount. When a dealer kicks in this discount, customers can walk away with a terrific deal. This is one way dealers can sell cars at "below invoice price."

Right now, here are the best hidden rebates available to dealers:


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.
