You would classify as a savvy new car if picked the time you buy as carefully as picked the type of car you wanted to get. Absolutely, do all of your research and narrow down your car type. Then avoid these times, which are the worst times to buy a car:
What’s wrong with springtime for car shopping? Two words: Tax returns. Armed with refunds, folks are racing to plunk them down on a new car. That means they’re ready to spend and that puts a crimp on demand. When demand goes up, so do the prices. You can track these numbers between late March and min May and watch them go up.
Avoid New Model Year
The new model year varies between manufacturers but it doesn’t start on January 1st. You can find out when the new models are going to hit the dealership with a little research. The moment those models hit the showroom floor, all of last year’s models get discount. Translation: You’ll be paying full price for the new car.
Don’t Buy Seasonal
Dealers watch the weather. They know when things are hot, everyone wants to be riding in a car with the top down. In the winter, with snow on the ground you want to be in a SUV. Those are the worst times to buy those two types of cars. Think of it this way; are you going to get a better deal on an air conditioner in December or August? Same with cars.
Always remember you have the power to walk away from any deal. Just because you’ve spent a few hours in a dealership doesn’t mean you’re obligated to buy from them. You are the one making the payments. Stay focused on that.
You should also spend some time focused on what kind of shape your garage is in. If you can’t fit the car in there, then it’s time for a session with Junk King Chico. At your earliest convenience, Junk King will dispatch a team of movers and a truck big enough to hold everything you want to toss out from your garage. All you have to do is tell the team what has to go. Your new car will look great in a garage that’s clear of rubbish. Junk King Chico can make that happen.
