Year-End Auto Deals Slimmer, but Bargains Still Abound

Car prices and incentives tend to follow the curve of the economy. In the darkest days of late 2008 through early 2009, consumers brave enough to buy a new vehicle scored some incredible deals. Now, as the country appears to be on the mend and auto sales have risen in recent months, the discounts aren’t quite as deep. But that’s not to say buyers can’t still find bargains as 2009 comes to a close.
According to Automedia.com’s “New Car Deals — A Guide to Year-End Deals and Rebates and Incentives,” dealers are still eager to clear out their remaining 2009 inventory and start selling new models as they try to secure their year-end bonuses.
Biggest Deals on 2009 Models
As soon as the ball drops to ring in the New Year, 2009 cars will be slapped with the stigma of being last year’s model. So it’s typical for manufacturers and dealers to sweeten their deals in December. However, some reports say that this summer’s Cash for Clunkers program wiped out much of the country’s 2009 inventory, which could make it harder to find the vehicle you want.
Here’s a sampling of some of the season’s hottest offers for 2009s. If you can be flexible on color and options, you could save thousands.
