People are always looking for a way to get ahead of the system and save money on major purchases and buying a car at a cheap price definitely falls into this category.
Much of the thinking of getting ahead of the system revolves around zeroing in on the best time to buy a particular item. Need a new TV? Shop on Black Friday. Flying somewhere? Buy your plane ticket on a Tuesday and fly out on a Wednesday.
As it turns out, it’s no different for cars. Ask anyone, “When is the best time to buy a car?” and there is a very high chance that you will get answers ranging from the end of the month to “wait until the new models come out.”
There are as many theories on this topic as there are days in the year. And, oddly enough, there is actually a grain of truth in many of them.
As it stands, there are a number of favourable time to consider when you are interested in purchasing a car. The following is a list of the most suitable time of the year to consider buying that automobile you have your eyes on.
End of the model year
End of the calendar year
End of month
End of the car’s design cycle
End of the car’s life cycle
Fourth of July
Early in the week
From the list above, you will see that you actually have more than a few to choose from. Simply put, here’s our advice: The best time to buy a car is when you need it and feel ready to buy, regardless of the time of year.
Car buying can be stressful, and it can take more than a month to go from deciding what to buy to actually closing the deal. Why add to that pressure by trying to squeeze your shopping into the last day of the month or a holiday weekend when everyone has the same idea?
