Did Santa Disappoint? Cash In On These End of the Year Car Deals

December 27th, 2010

BMW M3: 414-hp V8, 0.9% financing and $1500 off!

After all the work you did for others this holiday season, you should reward yourself with something nice. Like, really, really nice.

Like new car nice.

At the end of any month, car dealers look to maximize sales numbers and are more apt to negotiate in your favor. This year has been pretty decent as far as new car sales go, and auto manufacturers and dealers want to keep the momentum going into 2011. Now that we’re in the last week of December, and the last week of 2010, this could be an incredibly good week to drive home the gift of a new car… if Santa failed to deliver one Friday night.

Keep reading for some of the great offers available through the end of the year.

The Wall Street Journal says today,

Most auto makers also are doing their best to pump up sales, offering year-end incentives and cut-rate leases to pull in consumers. Toyota Motor Corp., General Motors Co.,Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Group LLC are offering 0% financing on various models and, in some cases, adding cash rebates on top of that. In the past, car buyers typically had to choose between interest-free loans or rebates.

Ford’s zero percent offer extends out to 60 months and is on the Focus, Fusion, Escape and F-150. The company will even contribute $1500 towards your first three payments on a whole slew of new models.

Chevy’s offer is similar to Ford’s, with zero percent financing, no payments until spring and a $1,500 holiday rebate on most 2011 models.

BMW even seems touched by Santa’s giving spirit. The company is offering 0.9 percent financing and a $1,500 Holiday Credit. While that’s not a great deal compared to the thousands you can save with Ford or Chevy, it’s an almost-unheard of deal for BMW and it applies to most 2011 models.

Toyota, Volkswagen, Nissan and Mazda all are offering some kind of zero percent financing now too, making this week among the best of the year to buy a car.

What car do you wish showed up under the tree this year?

    Given the way winter is going, we’d love a Ford F250 4×4 extended cab so we can keep moving through the snow (and pull a 5th wheel next summer.)
