The Best Time To Buy Your Car

Certain times are better for buying a car or truck than others, so to save money, try to plan when you will buy.

Best Time of the Year
Some "experts" will tell you that you can get a better deal on your vehicle in the dead of winter, when car sales are slow. Maybe so. But the truth is that you can get a great deal any month of the year if you know what you are doing. By the time you finish this step, you will know what you are doing, so don't be concerned about what month you buy your car or truck.

Best Time of the Month
Dealerships chart their sales on a monthly basis. Sales Managers target monthly sales quotas. Car salesmen earn bonuses for selling a certain number of vehicles each month. Therefore, the best time of the month to buy your car or truck is at the end of the month when Sales Managers are desperate to meet their quotas and salesmen are struggling to achieve their bonuses.

Best Time of the Week
Dealerships tend to go into "high gear" on weekends, trying to sell as many cars and trucks as they can in a two or three day period. Use this to your advantage. Plan on buying your car or truck on a weekend.

The bottom line:

The best time to buy your car or truck is the last weekend of any month.
This time frame is especially important if you will be negotiating the price of your vehicle. If you plan on buying without negotiating, this time frame may help you but is certainly not as important.
