timing a new car purchase
looking for a bit of advice on the best time to buy a new car, it will be a small car for our daughter who will not get her licence untill the middle to end of Jan but am wondering if I will get a better deal buying now, before christmas or waiting untill the new year.
Anyone in the know ??:):)
all depends on how much you want to spend...the renault dealership where i work in adelaide are selling cheap renaults (main north renault) main north road nailsworth come have a look
the 50% rebate stops 31 dec, this could have an effect on car sales.
Intrest rate rise means money will be tighter for most, so may see a drop in those luxury buys over the next couple of months.
Strong dollar means new cars from over seas should be cheaper.
2009 sold in 2010 should be a good bargaining point.
Look for runouts.
Ohhh and hagle, do your homework and run one dealer off against another for as long as you like.
Cash is king, and your holding the wallet.
We've always found Jan/Feb is the best time to buy a new car. All the new 2010 cars are coming in and they are desperate to get rid of the 2009 plates. The next best time is June, trying to boost the sales figures before the end of the financial year.
Play one dealer off against another in Jan and get some extras thrown in coz there are deals to be had.
Thanks everyone, looks like i'll be waiting untill the new year.:):):)
