Incredible Deals on Volkswagen

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard of Volkswagen's diesel emissions scandal. After getting caught cheating, Volkswagen as a brand has become a disgrace. A stop-sale order has been issued on their diesel vehicles, and past customers are furious with the car maker.

Due to the outrage and bad publicity, Volkswagen sales are currently in free-fall, and dealers are worried about whether they're going to even survive. But with the huge fall in demand, now is a great opportunity for car buyers to get incredible deals on Volkswagens.

Volkswagen has increased incentives and sales bonuses to help dealers offset the sluggish sales, and has even wired "discretionary funds" to dealers' accounts, to be used as they wish - which means some car buyers are going to get insane deals. In addition, Volkswagen is offering $2,000 loyalty bonuses to current Volkswagen owners.

I quickly did a check on TrueCar to see what kind of prices you can get on Volkswagens in California. For 2016 models, they range from 8 to 12% off MSRP, while 2015 models have savings of up to 24% off MSRP. In one example, a 2015 Volkswagen Passat was selling for nearly $2,000 less than it did last month.

If you can look past the emissions scandal and just want a great deal, you should take advantage of the situation and comparison-shop Volkswagen vehicles this month. Use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best deals being offered in your local area.

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).
