Some people really like to have the latest model when it comes to cars. They want a new car every couple of years. In order to get the best price on a new car, you want to purchase it at the end of the year, or the beginning of the next year.
For example, if you wanted a 2012 car, you want to wait until the end of December to get it. The prices will be much lower, and you will not experience the loss in value as much as those who purchased at the beginning of the year will. If you can snag a 2012 model at the beginning of 2013, then you are going to get even a better deal.
Many people will decide to buy previously leased cars, since they do not lose as much value once they leave the lot. Many financial advisors will tell you that you well get the best deal on a car by purchasing it within a five-year range from the year that the model was released. You can still get loans on cars within this age range, and they are still reliable and relatively new.
Making sure that you get the best price possible on your car, will make sure that you do not spend money that you do not have to. Often, people who over extend themselves end up losing their cars, and they go up for auction. Auctions are another great way that you can get a new car for less.
