SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- TrueCar.com, the authority on new car pricing, trends and forecasts, has revealed its forecast for the best days in December to buy a car. According to the forecast, New Years Eve will be the best day of the month to buy, yet the top ten days are separated by less than a percentage in potential discounts.
"The last few month of new cars sales have been strong relative to this year and this could be a December to remember as manufacturers are looking to end the year off on a strong note," said Jesse Toprak, VP of Industry Trends and Insights for TrueCar.com. "There will be plenty of deals as dealers are looking to hit their quotas, but consumers need to have researched and prepared before hitting the dealership lots."
Top 10 Days in December to Buy
With December typically one of the best months to purchase a new vehicle, TrueCar.com is providing consumers with daily deals on cars throughout the month on the TrueCar Blog called 31 Days of Cool Cars and Hot Savings. The deals are national, but vary in nature, from buying, leasing and financing deals to compact cars, SUVs and luxury vehicles.
Example deals from 31 Days of Cool Cars and Hot Savings include:
2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor
*Net price is the average national transaction price of a vehicle after incentives
Consumers can also identify the best deals using TrueCar.com's new Best Local Price tool, providing shoppers the Lowest Certified Price, a "no-haggle" upfront price from participating dealers.
