Only 16,000 Pontiacs Left. Buy Before They're All Gone
GM discontinued the Pontiac brand this year and as of today, there are only about 16,000 Pontiacs left on dealer lots.
29,000 Pontiacs were sold last month so there's less than a month's worth of inventory available.
We figure since color and options are limited, the final few hundred Pontiacs may take several more months to sell. But do you really want to be stuck with a color you don't like?
GM is offering up to $3,500 rebates on the G6 and G8 models. There is a $2,500 rebate on all other remaining vehicles. There's also a $500 hidden dealer incentive that you can use to help negotiate a lower price.
Keep in mind you may need to contact dealers located far away in order to find enough inventory to choose from.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
