Follow These 4 Shopping Tips for the Best Deal on a New Vehicle

You’ve done your research.


And talked with vehicle sales associates you trust.


Finally, you’ve decided on the car you want to purchase.


The next big question is: When?


When should you buy a new car?


Here’s what you need to know.

1. Shop on weekdays

It’s best to do your car shopping on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.


This is the case because there’s less customer traffic than on the weekends or later in the week.


That means you get more individualized attention and you can take all the time you need to ask questions.

2. Shop at the end of the month and the end of the year

Dealerships have goals that they’re trying to reach for each month and the year as a whole.


You may be able to snag a great deal when it’s crunch time and the sales staff is trying to hit their targets.


The 26th, 27th, and 28th of the month are typically the best days to get a great deal on your dream car.

3. Shop when the new models arrive

You’re likely to get a good deal on the later model when the new ones hit the showroom floor.


Dealerships only have so much space for vehicles and they’ll want to free up room for the latest models.

4. Shop the holiday sales

Dealerships will often run special sales around Memorial Day, Black Friday, and New Year’s Eve.


New Year’s Eve may be the sweetest spot of the whole year as sales associates are trying to hit monthly, quarterly, AND yearly goals, all at the same time.


Summer is typically a more expensive time to buy, but you can often find Memorial Day sales that bring the price down quite a bit for a limited time.


Be warned: Though the deals may be stellar, Black Friday may be just as busy a day on the car lot as it is at Target.

The right dealer is always a bargain

Though there are certain times of the year when buying a vehicle may be less expensive, a great dealership that you can trust will always have a way of offering you the best deal any time of the year.


That’s what you can expect when you shop for your new vehicle at one of our Serra Auto Park locations.


People pleasin’ at its finest!
