Cars With the Largest Incentives Increases

June 14, 2012

Good news for car buyers: Incentives are starting to rise. All car brands with the exception of Mazda, Volvo, Volkswagen, and Dodge increased incentives last month.

The average increase was 8.13%, but Infiniti increased theirs by a whopping 64% while Lexus added nearly 26% in additional spiffs.

The climate for car buyers is getting more favorable. Sales last month were decent, but didn't meet analysts' expectations. With several newly redesigned models coming out this fall, incentives on the leftover models are sure to increase.

By using a tool like the CarWoo Deal Finder, you're able to see the best deals available in your local area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise 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.
