Tips for Buying a Car at the End of the Model Year | Crittenden KY | Serving Lexington & Cincinnati

You might be in the market for a new car, but you’re not sure where to start. The newest vehicles out there are so shiny and new, but what about the new vehicles from the previous model year? Why are dealers offering such great incentives on these vehicles that are almost as new? Turns out, you could score a pretty good deal by buying a vehicle at the end of the model year.

Look for Manufacturer Sales Events
Buying a car at the end of a model year is usually a great way to save, but find out if there’s a manufacturer sales event as well, as this could mean even more savings.

Wait for the New Model Year to Drop
Since new models don’t all come out at once, you can’t assume that you’ll automatically get a good deal on a vehicle at the end of the year. Once a new model hits, then it’s time to look at the vehicle from the previous year.

Be Sure to Price Shop
As always, compare prices between trims and amenities of the vehicle that you have your eye on, and narrow down what features you need. Plus, be sure to compare prices from different sellers to make sure you’re getting the best price available.

Research Available Incentives
Dealers are trying to make room for the newer model year vehicles, so they’ll be offering incentives like 0% APR or cash incentives. So if you’re looking for more ways to save money on a new car, more incentives are likely to be offered on the vehicles approaching the end of the model year.
