Except Saturday and Sunday each days are usually the best days of the week to shop for a car, because less customer traffic means a better chance of getting a deal. Dealerships tend to be crowded throughout the weekends. Stopping in on a Saturday or a Sunday could result in less personal attention from salespeople — which could make negotiating a deal more difficult.
The best time of year to buy a car are the months of October, November and December, because car dealerships have sales quotas, which typically break down into yearly, quarterly and monthly sales goals. And these goals begin to come together late in the year.
If you begin shopping late in the year, your salesperson might have one or more of those quotas in mind and possibly offer you a better deal
we’ve all seen the holiday-themed commercials with car dealers urging you to shop and save on this special occasion. But it’s not always just salesmanship. These holiday’s sale can offer deep discounts when compared to car prices throughout the rest of the year.
