Why the Fall is a Great Time to Buy a New Car

September 13th, 2014 by

You can save a great deal of money on just about anything by choosing the right time to shop. When you are in the market for a new car, shopping during the fall can help you get some of the best bargains. Of course, you don’t have to buy a factory fresh model. You can buy a previously owned vehicle that is new to you.

Here are a few reasons why fall is a great time to buy from local used car dealerships:

Wider Selection

Local used car dealerships primarily rely on car owners to sell their vehicles in order to

get new inventory. Many people sell their cars in the fall because they have their eye on the next year’s model, which is released during that time. You’ll see a noticeable increase in inventory at local used car dealerships in the fall, which will give you a much wider selection when you are shopping.

Motivated Sellers

Because dealerships know that they will get a lot of new inventory in the fall, they want to clear out some of their older inventory as quickly as possible. That means that they will be more motivated to sell, likely marking down prices and being more open to negotiation. You can get a great deal on an already well-priced vehicle at local used car dealerships during this time.

End of Year Specials

Many local used car dealerships start introducing end of year specials in the fall. Dealerships want to clear out inventory and make sales goals, so they mark down prices and offer other special promotions in order to encourage sales. Just make sure you go to a reputable dealership like McCluskey Automotive so that you aren’t also pressured into making a sale. We’ll offer special pricing, but we’ll never try to push you into buying a car you don’t want or need.

Local used car dealerships are a great place to find your next car no matter what time of year it is. However, you can find even better pricing and selection in the fall when new inventory comes in and dealerships are more motivated to sell.
