Best End of Year Car Deals

December 22, 2016

'Tis the season for great shopping deals, and cars are no exception! If you're in the market for a new car, this is the best time of year to maximize savings, as car dealerships want to get rid of their 2016 vehicles and make room for 2017.

Consumer Reports put together a list of what they consider to be the best end-of-year deals on new cars.

Check out the list below - and as always, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the lowest prices being offered in your local are.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
