Best Times to Buy a Car

Winter? Summer? Does the time of year really matter when it comes to buying a car? Turns out it does. You can get great deals if you purchase at the right moment.

This infographic breaks down the best times to buy a car. Key takeaway: know when to be early and when to be late. Here’s what that means:

  • Shop LATE in the year (December is best).
  • Shop EARLY or LATE in the month (the first few days or the last few).
  • Shop EARLY in the week (try Monday or Tuesday).
  • Shop EARLY in the day (get to the dealership before 10).
