Toyota and Nissan Will Offer More Incentives Soon
Nissan says its factories in Japan and North America have recovered more quickly than rivals Toyota and Honda, and thus plan to offer attractive new car deals toward the end of May.
We're expecting 0% financing on several models plus some attractive cash-back rebates thrown in.
Toyota also plans to offer new deals on some of their vehicles, specifically the Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Avalon, Venza, and Sienna - saying production at its North American plants has rebounded faster than expected.
Nissan had 175,913 cars on showroom floors at the beginning of May. Toyota had 277,658 vehicles waiting to be sold, while Honda had 172,487.
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.
