Is there a specific month that's the best time to buy a car?

"Some of the people I've consulted say December is the best month to buy a car. Is this true?


“Traditionally, December is the best month to get a solid deal on a car. According to one source, prices on new vehicles drop by an average of 6.1% as dealers try to clear last year’s models off the lot in anticipation of the new year’s models.
However, you may also find deals throughout the year that allow you to save tons of money, specifically around holidays. In general, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Christmas provide the best deals and incentives. “
