Best Deals on Leftover Models

September 6, 2012

Smart car shoppers know that September marks the start of "leftover season", the time when next year's models start hitting showrooms and dealers need to make room by getting rid of the leftovers.

Between now and December is your best chance to get a great deal AND have a good selection of vehicles to choose from. The longer you wait, the less chance there is to get the exact color and options you want. Keep in mind that most manufacturers have stopped producing the 2012 models, so whatever is left on the lots is what you have to choose from.

This week, Edmunds.com released their list of leftover models that are currently offering the best deals. Check it out below, and make sure you use the CarWoo Deal Finder to get the biggest discounts.
