Best Year-End Car Deals

December 27, 2012

Are car deals really the best at the end of the year? According to our pals at Consumer Reports, some are nice while others would probably be put on the naughty list.

Tops on the list of the best year-end deals is the 2012 Hyundai Genesis Sedan V8 4.6L, offering a total average discount of $6,335, followed closely by the 2012 Hyundai Genesis Sedan V6 3.8L and the 2012 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LTZ 4WD.

As always, make sure to check with the elves at CarWoo Deal Finder to get the best deal.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar 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.
