Best Spring Incentives
May 7, 2015Spring has officially sprung and with it come deals on new cars as dealerships and manufacturers are doing their best to stay ahead of the competition.
Forbes has details on these great spring deals. If you're considering purchasing a new car, dealer discounts of up to $20,000 are possible (yes, you read that right), plus 0% financing on some vehicles. Or if you'd rather lease, monthly payments of under $200 with no money due at signing are possible (not including tax, title, and fees).
Vehicles on this spring deals list include the Acura RLX, Volkswagen Tiguan, Nissan Leaf, Ford Taurus, and BMW ActiveHybrid 3.
And for even more spring savings, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the lowest prices dealers are offering in your area.
