If you're choosing a new car, you know you want to save on your purchase wherever possible. Purchasing a car can be financially challenging, but there are also methods available to help you save. One method is to buy your car at the end of it's model year, when the manufacturer has released next year’s model. To learn more about how you can save using this method, continue reading.

Look for Manufacturer Sales Events

Shopping at the end of the model year should help save you money regardless, but be sure to watch for manufacturer sales events. Most companies plan special events like a model year-end event or similar, where there’s a good chance that you’ll find ways to save even more.

Wait for the New Model Year to Drop

If you make it to the final quarter of the year, year-end pricing on a new vehicle is not guaranteed. New models come out periodically instead of on a certain day or all at one time. When a new model has been revealed, you can begin to price shop last year's model.

Be Sure to Price Shop

As noted above, it’s important to price shop before you purchase. This means that you should consider prices on various trims, as well as prices from other dealerships. Even though many customers negotiate their sales terms, having a quote from another store can be helpful in securing the price you want.

Research Available Incentives

This principle also applies when investigating year-end manufacturer events. From special APR offers like 0% for a certain amount of time, to special bonus cash offers or leases with no down payment, there are many ways to save when purchasing a new vehicle. Pay attention, and be sure to ask any questions.
