Tips and Tricks for Getting the Best Deals on New and Used Vehicles This Spring

Did you know …


Before you enter into the world of car buying, 95 percent of the car buying process can be done online. This research saves time, money and less haggling. If you fail to do your research beforehand, you are more than likely going to be ripped off, and you won't even know it!


Piazza Subaru of Limerick, a used car dealership in Montgomery County, wants its customers to know it is possible to walk out of a car dealership, satisfied with your purchase and have money to spare. Take a look at these tips and tricks we've collected throughout the years when it comes to getting the best deals on new and used vehicles.


What's the best time of the week for a car purchase?


     And the winner is Tuesday or Wednesday. While the weekends are crazy busy when dealers hold sales events and have an ample amount of interested buyers, Tuesday and Wednesday are the slowest days for car dealers. Lot traffic is scarce, and dealers are desperately trying to achieve your business.


What's the best time of the month for a car purchase?


     The very last day of every month is the best day to purchase new and used vehicles. This is because sales associates need to reach personal quotas, thus allowing a more laid back negotiation process.


A good example of this: Let's say a car salesman gets a $250 bonus for every Subaru Legacy they sell in the month of July. They have to sell at least 25 vehicles to get their bonus. It's the end of the month, and he needs to sell one more. Do you see where we are going with this? It's far more likely you will get a good deal on a Subaru Legacy if your car salesman needs to sell one more to receive his bonus.


If I go to the dealership at closing time, will I get a better deal?


     Wrong. If anything, this is the worst time to show up at a car dealership. Most believe showing up at closing time will make a car salesman practically give you a car. This is far from the truth. If anything, the dealership will make you pay for making them stay by haggling much longer than you'd like. We recommend never showing up at closing time.


True or False: More used car deals happen on holidays


     This is not necessarily true or false. Some holidays yield better deals than others, like Christmas for instance. Thanksgiving and Christmas have customer rebates and incentives that are higher than during any other time of the year. Depending on the vehicle type, it may or may not be a good idea to buy.
