best time to buy a new car We know that you can’t always predict when you’ll need to buy a new car, but if you can plan ahead, there are some things worth considering. Like traveling, purchasing holiday gifts, booking hotels, and so many other things these days, there are best and worst times to make a car purchase. If you see that purchase coming down the road, try to plan your purchase at one of these times for the best chance of the best deal. So, as your car body repair team, we thought we would give you our “insider” info on the best time to buy a new car.

End of Month

If you’re in dire need of a new car, this might help you save some extra cash. Going to the dealership at the end of the month could equal additional savings if your purchase could help put the manager over their quota, said Mike Rabkin, founder of From Car to Finish. If you really want to make the most of this particular chance at savings, it might be a good idea to brush up on your negotiating beforehand. These end of the month savings aren’t likely to just fall in your lap.

Keep an Eye on Special Offers

If you’ve been in the market for a car in the past (or watch TV pretty much any time) you’ve probably noticed that car manufacturers always seem to have some kind of special offer or seasonal sale going on. It’s such a frequent thing that it’s easy to get lost in the noise, but tune your ears to perk up when there’s an offer including a rebate. Rebate-based offers are a great way to save big because they are typically dealer incentives to clear out a model entirely. Another big offer day to consider is Black Friday. It might be a little hectic at the dealerships, but the savings could be well worth the mania.

New Model Time

When new year models come out, that means the pressure is on to sell off the last year’s models, so it is the best time to buy a new car. If you’re planning to give this trick a try, just remember that new model years rarely come around at the same time as the new calendar year. Check your favorite manufacturer and see if you can anticipate when their new models will be coming around and plan to shop for the previous year around that time.

End of Day

This isn’t just about the end of ANY day, it also pays to strategically choose the day of the week you decide to purchase. While you may save money at the end of the day on any day of the week with an eager salesperson who doesn’t want to lose the sale over a little negotiating, according to a study by, people who purchased a car on Friday could pay as much as $2,000 more than those who bought the same car at the end of the day on Sunday.
