December is one of the slowest months of the year for car dealers across the nation. Most people are getting ready for the holidays and not interested in buying a new car.
With people focused on the holidays, it creates a shortage of qualified buyers on dealer’s lots. However, if you’re in the market to buy a car, there’s no better time to get a great deal.
With fewer car buyers in the market, dealers will be a little more flexible and / or aggressive with their pricing and deal making to get you to buy a car from them. Combine this with available year-end rebates, finance incentives and model-year closeouts; You can see why December is one of the best times to buy a new car.

Competition Between Dealers Always Gets You the Best Price
When negotiating a new car’s price, it’s important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won’t know what’s a good price to pay for the vehicle.
I highly recommend using an online referral service such as Ryde Shopper or Motor Trend, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
