March is the Best Time to Buy a Nissan
Nissan is currently offering a slew of cash back rebates, 0% financing, and an aggressive lease-loyalty program.
But the best part - Nissan is also offering dealers a hidden "stair-step" incentive which should result in some fantastic deals for consumers.
These stair-step incentives are usually in the form of cash back bonuses for each vehicle sold.
For example, a dealer may get a $200 bonus for each car they sell, up to 20 cars. If they sell more than 20 cars this month, the bonus goes up to $350. If they can sell more than 40 cars, the bonus goes even higher.
Stair-step incentives are controversial among dealers because it increases competition and tends to hurt dealers who can't offer incredible deals.
To take advantage of this situation, you need to use our car buying method. This will weed out the dealers who are desperate to hit their bonus goals.
If you've been thinking about buying a Nissan, this is the month to do it. Wait closer to the end of the month for the very best deals.
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.
