What's the best time of year to buy a car?
"If I can shave at least a few hundred dollars off the purchase price by buying at a certain time of year, I’ll be happy.
“Thanks to sales quotas and the need to make room for incoming inventory, the period from October to December is the best time to buy a car. January and February can also be a good time to buy, since business usually slows down during the first few months after the holidays. Sales are not typically advertised for these months, though, and it may take a bit of negotiating to get a good deal.
If possible, buyers should generally avoid purchasing a car in the spring and summer months. “
