2017 is here, and it could be the time you’ve been waiting for to get behind he wheel of a new car. Before you head to the dealership and sign on the dotted line, though, there are some things that you should know about how to get the best deal possible on your next car. Here’s a few strategies to help you pay less and get more.

Go During a Chevy Sales Event

Throughout the year, Chevy holds a number of different sales events over holidays, at the end of the year, and at other specified times. If you decide to buy a new car during one of these events, you could get low APR financing or lease rates. Check out the new Chevy lineup to see if any of these models seem right for you!

Wait for Good Incentives on the Model You Want

Throughout the year, different dealerships and manufacturers run special incentive programs to encourage people to buy certain models at particular times. Keep an eye on the vehicle of your choice, and check local dealership websites from time to time to see if there are any incentives going on. These could include lower rates, lower down payments, cash back, and more.

Hold Off Until the Next Model Year Comes Out

Patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to getting a new car. It can be really tempting to get a new vehicle as soon as it hits dealerships. The nifty new features and exciting new specs can make it seem all but irresistible. If you wait until the next model year of the car you’re interested in comes out, though, then you’ll be able to get the previous model at a reduced price and generally with better incentives attached to it.

Wait Until the End of the Month

Another strategy for getting a good deal on a car is to wait until the end of the month. The idea behind this is that because dealerships often have quotas that need to be met for their salespeople, they will be more motivated to offer you a better deal on a vehicle if they haven’t met it by the end of the month. Of course, this is a hit or miss scenario.
