7 Reasons to Buy a Car in December

7 Reasons to Buy a Car in December (1)

What better way to start the New Year off right than with a new car? It’s the time of year when we dream big and give bigger.  Here are 7 reasons you should consider purchasing a new set of wheels this holiday season.


1. Your car is another model year older in January

This can greatly affect the trade-in value of your car. Year of the model is a major factor dealerships use to calculate the total cost of your new car. Another year older is another year of depreciation.

 

2. New year models are out now

Yes, it’s new. Yes, it’s shiny. And yes, it could be yours! Most of the 2016 new models are out now and are yours for the taking. Why not be one of the first on the road with your new favorite model? The satisfaction has never been greater.

3. Safer car to use for holiday travel

It’s hard enough getting the car packed for the holiday and everyone ready to go. The last thing you need is a flat tire, squeaky brakes, a dead battery, no heater, or worse. Why not just leave all your troubles at home? Travel in style with a new car that is ensured to keep your family safe during those road trips to Grandma’s house. Away we go.

 

4. Model Year End Clearance Sales

December is widely known as one of the best times a year to buy a car. With new 2016 models coming in, dealerships are ready to get last year’s models off the lot. This makes it a great opportunity for car buyers to take advantage of outstanding end of the year closeout deals.  Like these ones.

5. Joy of showing it off to family members

One of the biggest conversations you will have with your family over the holidays will be “How’s it running?” or “You still have the old (insert cheesy car name here). Why not be the one who shows up at Christmas with something everyone will admire. There is nothing more magical than the whole family huddled around an icy driveway during holiday dinner admiring your new set of wheels. Nothing.

 

6. If you buy car in December, you won’t have a payment until next year

Buying a car in December means that your first month is paid by the dealership. This allows you more money to use to tackle other items on the holiday shopping list.

 

7. If you are only giving one gift this year, this is the one you want

Not in the holiday spirit? Don’t know what to get your loved one? No problem! Anyone over the age of 15 will be quite pleased with this gift and may even offer to give you a ride! You’ll be the family hero and have a personal chauffeur…win win!
