HUGE weekend to get a deal!

Memorial Day SaleFor consumers, Memorial Day weekend is one of the two best times of the year to get yourself a bargain. As a former dealership owner, I will tell you that this is one of those weekends where you are thinking “pure volume”. To make it EVEN BETTER for you this weekend, it’s the last weekend of the month too!
If that is not enough for you, used car values are SKY HIGH right now. Many experts say that used car values will start to drop in June. I agree that used car values will fall and fall fast. I happen to think it will be in July, but no matter who is correct, the value of your used car WILL fall from where it is today.
On holiday weekends like this one, the dealers will deal on EVERYTHING. The dealer’s mindset is to do whatever it takes to move vehicles, even those that are short in supply. They will work hard to get you the best possible interest rate, and if you have less than perfect credit, the lenders get more lenient too on Memorial weekend and Memorial Day. Remember too, there are a LOT of extra incentives out there for Veterans and current and former military personnel through Monday night.
Bottom line, if you think you might be in the market for a new or used vehicle any time this year, consider this weekend, it’s the perfect storm of savings for consumers.

    Hi Jerry, you say this Memorial Day weekend is ONE of the two best times of the year to get yourself a bargain. What is the other day! My husband has our vehicle in Connecticut at this time and that’s the one we want to trade in…but obviously it will not be this weekend. Thank you.

      The last week of the year is always good. The automakers almost always put good incentives out there. THANKS for listening to the show!

    What do you think of the 2013 Passat TDI vs the 2013 Camry Hybrid? I’m torn! I like them both. I want great mileage and comfort! Also, Please compare the 2012 version of both cars. Would it make senxe to buy a used 2012?

      Good to hear from you. There is no real difference in the 2012 vs 2013 in either car.

      The answer depends on how much you drive. If you drive a lot, I’d go with the VW. If you drive mostly city, I’d go hybrid.

      I have good dealers for both in most markets, just let me know where you are located.
