Now a Good Time to Buy/Lease a Scion
Toyota will be discontinuing the Scion brand at the end of summer, so there's a good opportunity to get deals on the remaining inventory.
There is still a good deal of inventory left on dealer lots, according to CarsDirect.com. Some of the vehicles come with $1,500 cash back on top of 0% financing.
The best deals seem to be on the iA and iM models, which come with some of the cheapest lease deals on the market - $149/month and $173/month for 36 months and $1,999 due at signing (some regions, you will find even better deals).
If you've ever considered buying or leasing a Scion, now would be a good time to do so. I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to quickly see the best deals being offered in your local area.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe 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 NetworkSelect 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 / CarsDirectTrueCar, 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.
