The Best End-of-Year Car Deals
December 11, 2014December is here, which means now is the best time to get a great deal on a new car. Dealers and manufacturers are trying to move as much inventory off the lots as possible, plus many are in close end-of-year sales battles with the competition, so the time is ripe for great deals.
TrueCar has compiled a list of the best deals available right now until the end of the year. Deals include financing rates as low as 0%, large customer cash-back rebates, and special lease deals.
Below are some highlights from the list. Make sure to act between now and the end of the year for the best selection and prices.
And as always, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best prices being offered in your local area.
