Smart Car Shopping: Great Car Deals This Week

October 25th, 2009

Before you go shopping car this weekend, there are two things you should know.

One is that you might want to wait a few days. Our partners TrueCar.com, car pricing experts tell us that the cheapest days to buy this month will be Wednesday, 28.07. You’ll often get the best deals on a Saturday, but with the end of a slow sales months approaching, many dealers are willing to offer a low-ball on the 28th take, because they qualify for a monthly bonus if they meet a certain quota of sales.

The second is that if you expect to get a good deal, for instance, you homework is more important than it is in a long time. Only a few months ago, automakers were offering heavy incentives on most cars in their showrooms, but that’s not entirely true anymore. Then they had overbuilt and had too many cars to sell. Now they have cut back production, sold the bulk of the backlog, and not reduce prices as aggressively as they do not need cars to move as desperate.

There are still impressive discounts, but they are spread throughout the market. You know what you want. We have combed through hundreds of offers a few good deals on good cars highlight of the week. There were a few surprises, but in many cases, we found that impressive offers we had seen in recent weeks have been reduced.

Some of your best new car deals this month:

2010 Honda Fit

We do not often call leasing deals in this space, but this is worth the exception. The Honda Fit is a great car. It somehow manages to squeeze a ton of usable space, thoughtful ergonomics and a little pleasure in a subcompact package for less than $ 18,000. This month is offering the Honda Fit with no money, no first payment and a monthly payment of only $ 210 for 35 months – so it squeezes easily into the budget, too.

2010 Kia Soul

The box-on-wheels design of the Scion xB, Nissan Cube and the Kia Soul makes a lot of sense for a lot of people. It means a lot of practical space in a small, stylish, easy to drive package. Kia’s making it easy to get in one this month, with 0 percent financing for 36 months in April. Almost all buyers are also eligible for a $ 1,000 cash-back rebate. Returning Kia customers receive it as a loyalty bonus. Those who trade in a competitor to get to make the switch.

2010 Mazda6

Sometimes a car is not as good as it should be sold without good reason. The Mazda6 is overshadowed in a market filled with Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion, but it should not. It may be the best handling of affordable mid-size car, it looks sexy for a family sedan, and it has more interior space than most of its competitors – but it just did not sell as well as the big names. That means it is a great opportunity for smart buyers. This month, it is available with 0 percent financing for 60 months in April, plus $ 500 cash back, and no payments for the first 90 days.

GMC Acadia 2010

A smart car-shopping tips you need in your back for life: many manufacturers to build multiple versions of the same car under different names. When one of them is good, they’re all good. But that does not mean they all sell well. General Motors’ Lambda platform SUVs are a good example. The Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and are all very close to one same car and it is a very good one. With practical minivan, SUV towing and style, driving dynamics and sedan, they strike a balance that makes them versatile family haulers. The Enclave and the Traverse are easy to sell. The Acadia, for whatever reason, it is not. So GM is offering 60 months with interest-free payments, or a discount of $ 2,000 – a deal you will not find on the Traverse or the Enclave.

2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Actually this is a bit ridiculous. Jeep has a new, redesigned 2011 Grand Cherokee on the way to the dealers, and heavy advertising rotation. But they have thousands of 2010 models still in showrooms. So, to clear them out, they offer 72 months after the interest-free financing or up to $ 5,000 o money back. They’re nice SUVs, a proven platform with great strength, comfort and true off-road prowess.

2010 Ford F-150

best-selling car in America for quarter-century, the F-150 is a miracle. It rides comfortably on the road, going somewhere, and has more practical, hard working job site than any other truck. Our favorite option? An RFID tracking system that monitors your tools so that truck Nav screen can tell you is reciprocating. This week, all F-150s into account 0 percent in April for up to 60 months. Supercab and Super Crew editions are available with up to $ 4,500 back.
