Tips for Buying a Car at the End of the Model Year

Searching for that perfect new car? Well, sometimes new doesn't always mean newest. Dealers often have a selection of vehicles from the previous model year still available when the newest models drop. For this reason, you could save on a new car if you play your cards right and shop when they go on sale. This might not be the right choice for everyone, however, so keep reading to find out tips for buying a car at the end of the model year.

Look for Manufacturer Sales Events

While looking at the end of the model year will usually help you save money regardless, keep an eye out for manufacturer sales events. Most brands have special events like a model year-end event or something similar, where you'll likely find even bigger savings.

Wait for the New Model Year to Drop

Making it to the final quarter of the year does not mean you'll receive year-end pricing on a new Toyota. New vehicles get rolled out periodically, rather than on a specific day or all at once. Once you see that a vehicle has been released, it's time to price shop last year's model.

Be Sure to Price Shop

Like we said before, price shopping is a crucial part of this process. This means that you should be comparing prices for a variety of trims, as well as prices from different dealerships. While many buyers negotiate their sales terms, bringing in a quote from another store can help you secure the price you're looking for too.

Research Available Incentives

This principle goes hand in hand with investigating year-end manufacturer events. From special APR offers like 0% for a specific amount of time, to special bonus cash offers or $0-down leases, there are a lot of diverse ways you can save when you're driving home a new vehicle. Keep your eyes peeled and be sure to ask questions.
