Best Car Incentives for April

New car sales continue to be strong this year, but have definitely hit a plateau - which tends to lead to increased incentives as manufacturers battle it out for limited market share.

This week, TrueCar released a list of what they consider to be some of the better incentives available this month - for instance, the 2016 Ram 1500 has an average cash-back rebate of $4,367 across the country, while the Nissan Leaf comes with 0% financing for up to 72 months.

As always, if you want the very best deals, I highly recommend you use both TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see what local dealers are offering.

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).

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.
