Best and Worst Day To Buy a Car
Best and Worst Day To Buy a Week Apart
TrueCar.Com says those days are only going to be eight days apart. Don't head to the dealerships on Monday, Nov. 22, because your discount is only going to be 6.14 percent off the MSRP (manufacturer suggested retail price).
So, stay at home, get the house ready for Thanksgiving, thaw the turkey, cook it, serve it, clean up, send your guests on their merry way, and head back to the dealership on Tuesday, Nov. 30. That's when the deals are going to be on the table with dealers offering, on average, 7.87 percent discounts. That's more than $1500 off a $20,000 car vs. about $1200 on Nov. 22.
By the way, TrueCar.com also has information on which cars are least flexible when it comes to negotiating price. They are:
- GMC Yukon XL
- Chevrolet Suburban
- Audi A3
- Hyundai Tucson
- Ford Ranger
Frankly, the Ford Ranger is a weird one to see on a least of cars you can't haggle over because it's a product Ford has discontinued. Maybe the price is so low that dealers just won't drop below that point.
