Where are the Best Car Deals 2015?
Until the last few years, the best way to get a great car deal was … to work hard for it by haggling with stubborn dealer salespeople. With plenty of luck, careful preparation, and a heap of negotiating skill, you might get a good deal.
You would increase your chances of getting a good deal if you knew the best time of day/month/year to buy, knew dealer invoice prices and holdbacks, and had good bargaining savvy— and possessed the stamina for long stressful haggling sessions with dealer salespeople who would try every trick in the book to wear you down — not a pleasant experience for many people. Most people hate it and don’t look forward to it.
It’s not that haggling still isn’t necessary. It is in many
cases. But the best car deals don’t happen that way anymore. Things have changed. The best deals are actually given to you — without haggling — by major car companies in partnership with their dealers.
Car manufacturers, in these challenging economic times, are hungry for your business and are willing to offer ready-made deals that were offered much less frequently in the past. These are deals that buyers could not possibly negotiate for themselves — because dealers are not capable of making the kind of concessions that their deep-pockets parent car companies can make. You could haggle with a car dealer all day and all night and he still wouldn’t be able to give you large price discounts, rebates, bonuses, 0% APR loans, or give you special subsidized leases, if he didn’t have help from his parent car company.
