New car models tend to arrive at dealers in the early fall, and the old aphorism “get ‘em in, get ‘em out” applies. But before the new models can come in, the models from the previous year need to get moved out. If a new car has a shelf life, that shelf life can expire sometime in September. Make sure you have a general idea of what you want.
On the one hand, the new models have new features and new designs. And all that comes with a correlated higher price tag, as well. The color you might want (let’s say a sporty red) might also appeal to someone else who wants that color too, but is willing to wait until the fall for a more motivated dealer’s price.
It’s a classic case of you can have whatever you’re willing to pay for, as long as it’s there to be had in the first place. The sooner you buy when the new models come out, the more likely you’ll get what you’re after. But if price is the main concern—and doesn’t it always seem to be the case?—then waiting around for a few months to go by is a wise decision. Just know this, it’s important to know what you want before you begin car shopping, but it’s not a deal breaker, MrCarShopper.com is here to help you through this daunting task of looking for your next set of wheels. Do you really have the time?
The old saying holds that timing is everything. Or, as Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis rephrased it, “life is about timing.” When is the best time to buy a new car? It depends on if you want. If you want what you want when you want it, and are able to spend whatever it takes to get it, then by all means get a new car in the late summertime, when the new models start to appear. But patience is a virtue, and waiting until later in the year can bring its own rewards, too.
You may attempt this on your own, just make sure you avoid being taken advantage of at a car dealership. We suggest you leave it to MrCarShopper.com, at the end of the day this is what we do best, and knowing most of the dealers around, we know how to get your way, and we do what we can to meet your expectations.
