Toyota Deals May Get Even Better
Toyota saw a 16% decline in sales between March and April even though they were still offering large incentives. The incentives have been officially extended until June 1 but a top Toyota executive has confirmed they will extend the incentives until fall or possibly until the end of the year.
With sales declining, Toyota is in danger of falling into a scenario in which they need to offer greater incentives to keep buyers interested. By end of summer, Toyota will need to start clearing out current year models to make room for next year's models.
It looks like they will need to come up with some very attractive offers to move the metal in the fall. This, of course, is great news for prospective Toyota buyers. Get ready for some great Toyota deals this summer.
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.
