New vehicles may seem expensive at first glance, but you can cash in on some outstanding deals and extra savings when you know how to shop efficiently. It's important to understand that the sticker price listed on the vehicle isn't necessarily what you're going to pay when purchasing it. This listing just gives you a general breakdown of the starting price for that make and model and the associated charges for any included add-ons, upgrades, or special features.

You can do more in-depth pricing research through resources such as Kelley Blue Book and the National Automobile Dealers Association. With this information in hand, you'll know a great deal when you see it, and you won't accidentally pass up on any stellar specials that are built to save you hundreds on your next car.

When To Check for New Vehicle Specials

You should check for new vehicle specials often to make sure you get the best possible deal on your car purchase. Auto specials get especially competitive around Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Black Friday, and New Year's Eve. However, seeking specials outside these windows could prove the perfect strategy for cashing in on offers that are easily missed.

If you're actively shopping for a new vehicle, check out our dealership's specials once a week. This will help ensure that you never miss out on the perfect offer for your needs.

Financing Offers

In the first quarter of 2021, over 81% of new vehicles were purchased with financing. This is no surprise considering that the average new car sold for $48,043 in America as of June 2022. Though car prices are on the rise, there's no reason a new vehicle needs to feel out of your reach. Financing can bring costs back down into a reasonable range each month. Better yet, using dealership financing can open you up to special offers that you wouldn't otherwise receive.

Financing offers typically give you a certain amount of cash back when you finance your vehicle through our dealership. This translates to instant savings on your new purchase. If you want to make sure you get the best financing offer possible, try these tips a few months before you plan to purchase your next vehicle:

  • Pay down your debt as much as possible. The lower your ratio of available credit to used credit, the higher your credit score will be.
  • Don't open any new credit cards or loans. You'll have a higher credit score with fewer recent inquiries.
  • Make all your monthly payments on time. Late payments have a negative impact on your credit score.
  • Save up for a down payment. Your down payment lowers the amount you'll ultimately need to take out as a loan, thus lowering your monthly payments and helping you get a better deal.

The higher you can get your credit score and down payment, the better your financing offer will be. Ask about our current financing offers before you apply for financing. If you don't find a deal you like, consider checking back in a few weeks or months, as our offers often change.
