March is the Best Time to Buy a Nissan
Nissan's fiscal year ends March 31st, which means they want to finish off with strong sales and they're willing to pile on the incentives and bonuses to make it happen
Nissan is currently offering a slew of cash back rebates, 0% financing, and an aggressive lease-loyalty program.
But the best part - Nissan is also offering dealers a hidden "stair-step" incentive which should result in some fantastic deals for consumers.
These stair-step incentives are usually in the form of cash back bonuses for each vehicle sold.
For example, a dealer may get a $200 bonus for each car they sell, up to 20 cars. If they sell more than 20 cars this month, the bonus goes up to $350. If they can sell more than 40 cars, the bonus goes even higher.
Stair-step incentives are controversial among dealers because it increases competition and tends to hurt dealers who can't offer incredible deals.
To take advantage of this situation, you need to use our car buying method. This will weed out the dealers who are desperate to hit their bonus goals.
If you've been thinking about buying a Nissan, this is the month to do it. Wait closer to the end of the month for the very best deals.
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.
