Best New Car Deals for September
The end of month is when you typically get the best car deals. And the end of September is what the industry considers the annual change over in new car models. Dealers need to get rid of leftovers to make room for the 2013 models, which means deep, closeout discounts available on many models.
An added bonus to buying in September is that there's still a good variety of colors and options to choose from. The deals may get better the longer you wait, but you risk the chance of not finding the colors or options you want on your vehicle.

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.
