Is there really a myth to buying cars?
The time of year can make a difference when shopping for your next vehicle; however, many times it is out of the dealer's hands. Usually manufacturers will target the introduction of a new model year in the fall which will, many times, prompt them to offer incentives on vehicles from the previous model year. However if they fall behind in production or their sales projections are off, they will release new vehicles accordingly. If there is a delay in the release of new products, the manufacturers will also make adjustments with incentives or special offers. In short, dealers and manufacturers are typically motivated to finish the year end strong; however, any dealer doing a good job will have that attitude on a daily basis. I think a "good deal" is a deal that is good for both the dealer and the customer. When we sell vehicles, we are building relationships, so you never know when you might get the deal you are looking for!
