Top End of Year Car Incentives

December 31, 2015

Happy New Year! If you've been thinking of purchasing a new car for 2015, today and this weekend might be the best time to do so as dealerships are itching to move their current inventory. (Most deals are available until January 4th)

New Years Eve is considered by many to be the best day out of the entire year to buy a car as dealerships want to do everything they can to boost their December and year-round sales. Check out Forbe's list of the 15 best year-end new car incentives on vehicles such as the 2015 BMW 6 Series, 2015 Ford Taurus, 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and 2016 Hyundai Sonata.

And US News & World Report's Best Cars Blog offers up end-of-year car incentives that expire January 4, 2016. Vehicles on this list include the 2016 BMW 3 Series, 2015 Buick Encore, 2015 Nissan Altima, and 2016 Chevrolet Traverse.

And as always, I recommend TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise for the best end-of-year deals in your local area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds 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.
