Incredible Deals on Volkswagen

October 15, 2015

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard of Volkswagen's diesel emissions scandal. After getting caught cheating, Volkswagen as a brand has become a disgrace. A stop-sale order has been issued on their diesel vehicles, and past customers are furious with the car maker.

Due to the outrage and bad publicity, Volkswagen sales are currently in free-fall, and dealers are worried about whether they're going to even survive. But with the huge fall in demand, now is a great opportunity for car buyers to get incredible deals on Volkswagens.

Volkswagen has increased incentives and sales bonuses to help dealers offset the sluggish sales, and has even wired "discretionary funds" to dealers' accounts, to be used as they wish - which means some car buyers are going to get insane deals. In addition, Volkswagen is offering $2,000 loyalty bonuses to current Volkswagen owners.

I quickly did a check on TrueCar to see what kind of prices you can get on Volkswagens in California. For 2016 models, they range from 8 to 12% off MSRP, while 2015 models have savings of up to 24% off MSRP. In one example, a 2015 Volkswagen Passat was selling for nearly $2,000 less than it did last month.

If you can look past the emissions scandal and just want a great deal, you should take advantage of the situation and comparison-shop Volkswagen vehicles this month. Use TrueCar No Haggle, RydeShopper and CarsDirect to see the best deals being offered in your local area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best 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.
