New Incentives for September 2018

September 13, 2018

This week I sifted through new incentives offered by the major car companies to determine what's changed since last month (a lot of increased bonus and cash back rebates)

Below, you'll find the highlights for each brand. Keep in mind there can be regional differences, so some of these changes may not be available in your area.

As always, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the latest incentives being offered in your area.

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.
