In our third annual list of auto manufacturer’s Holiday Promotions, the main thing you’ll notice is how unimaginative the car companies are… 90% used the same slogans as in 2012. Prior to last December, car sales and the general economy were still fairly slow, but with the increase in overall economic momentum, the manufacturer’s feel comfortable enough to offer better rates, discounts and promotions than ever before. U.S. sales are expected to reach 15.6 million this year, compared to just 10.4 million in 2009. Normally, you can get 5 to 6 percent off the sticker price when dealing, but that could rise to 8 or 10 percent this month. If you were considering financing or leasing a new vehicle, now until the beginning of the new year is definitely the time to do so. You probably won’t see such generous promotions until the summer months.
If you are looking for an inexpensive lease, there are some real bargains out there including $99 dollar per month leases on the Scion iQ and Smart Pure Coupe with $2919 and $1393 due at signing, respectively. The Nissan Versa Note is a little more at $139 per month with $1999 to start, and the base models of Chevy Cruze and Honda Fit can be had for $149 per month with $1999 due at signing. Even the electric Nissan Leaf has a special lease for $199 per month for 36 months with $2,000 down. Prices do not include taxes, fees plus license and registration costs.
“Sign & Drive” programs can be found at Ford, Honda, Chevrolet and VW (Sign Then Drive) dealerships. They basically consist of 0 Down, 0 First Payment, 0 Security Deposit and 0 due at signing.
