Toyota Incentives Will Probably Continue Until August
Toyota can't seem to get a break lately, but don't feel too bad because Toyota's misfortune is nothing but good news for car shoppers looking for a great deal.
Industry analyts are predicting Toyota will continue or even increase their incentives until at least August. The current 0% financing and lease deals are set to end May 3.
Some even think the incentives will be extended to the Lexus brand to offset bad publicity surrounding the Lexus GX 460 safety issue.
If you're considering buying a Toyota and are afraid the incentives will go away next month, chances are they will probably continue for a few more months.
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.
