Best New Car Deals for September
September 27, 2012The end of month is when you typically get the best car deals. And the end of September is what the industry considers the annual change over in new car models. Dealers need to get rid of leftovers to make room for the 2013 models, which means deep, closeout discounts available on many models.
An added bonus to buying in September is that there's still a good variety of colors and options to choose from. The deals may get better the longer you wait, but you risk the chance of not finding the colors or options you want on your vehicle.
Consumer Reports released a list of new models that are currently offering the largest discounts off MSRP. Check out the list below, and make sure to use the RydeShopper to get maximum savings.
