Hidden Rebates on Leftover 2012 Models

Summer is when the model year changeover starts to really pick up steam. That means more and more 2012 models will be considered "leftovers". Dealers and manufacturers want to get rid of these models as quickly as possible, so as not to take away sales from the newer models.

Chrysler is currently offering a "No Payments for 90 Days" promotion on all 2012 Dodge, Chrysler, RAM, Jeep, or Fiat models, while GM is offering a 60-day money-back guarantee as well as no-haggle pricing on all outgoing 2012 models.

In addition, there are a slew of hidden dealer incentives on these models, some as high as $5,000. Check out the list below to see which models offer the biggest rebates.

Use the RydeShopper to maximize these discounts.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The 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 Network

Select 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).
Select Vehicle to Get Local Pricing

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, 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.

Step 3 Complete my Checklist
