Kelly Blue Book Used Cars
September 3, 2010 by staff
Because there are several “best” seasons to buy cars. In the same post basically the same source says that the end of each month, is probably as good a time as any to reach agreement on a car. Depending on the year, current promotions, and the combo of the desperation of an individual dealer and negotiating skills of an individual consumer, there is an argument to make October the best month to buy a new car, or, alternatively, that December is the best month to buy (in all cases, always towards the end of the month, when salespeople are trying to achieve sales targets).
So best time of year is best?
Unfortunately, too many factors involved to really nailing down. Normally, I would say the best time to make this purchase is when it is a necessity, but if you wait until you really need a car, you are less likely to bargain and, if necessary, on foot and that is I feel more pressure to close the deal right and get your wheels. So I would say that the smartest strategy is to shop for a car) when you know you will in the near future, and b) one of the big weekend, full of incentives, holidays or at the end of the months in the fall or early winter, and only when you are in the position and state of mind to get what you want, at the price you’re looking for.
Mind you all these “best” moments of anxiety year’s new cars. If you’re out to get the most for your money, a good used car is the best value, if we consider the resale value and depreciation that occurs immediately after driving a new car off the lot.
An Edmunds.com writer, in fact, says there is a sweet spot for the purchase of a (nearly) new car. The idea is to buy the car of one or two years (so that the original owner, right, has a hit with the original depreciation), driving the car for a few years and resell it before you become serious maintenance problems a problem, and at a price not much less than you paid for it.
If you can work the system well, and if, here is a capable big if, you sell and buy directly (instead of allowing a car dealer broker to take a cut of each transaction), you are essentially able to conduct a car for a few years for almost nothing.
