Hidden Rebates on Leftover 2012 Models

July 19, 2012

Summer is when the model year changeover starts to really pick up steam. That means more and more 2012 models will be considered "leftovers". Dealers and manufacturers want to get rid of these models as quickly as possible, so as not to take away sales from the newer models.

Chrysler is currently offering a "No Payments for 90 Days" promotion on all 2012 Dodge, Chrysler, RAM, Jeep, or Fiat models, while GM is offering a 60-day money-back guarantee as well as no-haggle pricing on all outgoing 2012 models.

In addition, there are a slew of hidden dealer incentives on these models, some as high as $5,000. Check out the list below to see which models offer the biggest rebates.

Use the CarWoo Deal Finder to maximize these discounts.
