Tips for Buying a Car at the End of the Model Year | Lansing MI | Serving Williamston & DeWitt

Have you been considering a new vehicle? If that's the case, then you've probably been searching around and come across new vehicles from this year and last year. So which one should you go with? While there are distinct benefits to both, we're here to spell out tips for you regarding buying a car at the end of a model year (and how it can save you a lot).

No, we're serious. If you play your cards right and keep up with what's going on at our dealership, you could save big on a brand new vehicle. Since many models don't vary too much from year to year, you could be getting a vehicle similar to the newest model but for much less. See what we're talking about below.

Look for Manufacturer Sales Events
You can find more savings than usual during year-end or manufacturer sales events. These special events can bring you better deals than any other time of the year.

Wait for the New Model Year to Drop
Just because it’s the end of the year doesn’t mean you’ll naturally get the year-end savings on the model you’ve had your eye on. Not all new vehicles come out at the same time, so you might have to be a bit patient to wait for the newest model to debut before you can score the savings on the previous model.

Be Sure to Price Shop
Make sure you take the time to shop around and look at different trims with different features to ensure that you’re getting exactly what you want at the price point that you’d like to stick to.

Research Available Incentives
In addition to sales going on, many dealerships like ours offer incentives like 0% APR, cash back or $0 down leases on many new vehicles. This is the perfect time to score maximum savings on the new vehicle you want, especially one from the previous model year.
