New Incentives for July 2018

This week I sifted through new incentives offered by the major car companies to determine what's changed since last month (not much has changed, only a few manufacturers have updated incentives)

Below, you'll find the highlights for each brand. Keep in mind there can be regional differences, so some of these changes may not be available in your area.

As always, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the latest incentives being offered in your 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).

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.
