Saying “Goodbye!” to 2018 can be a great time for you to get some hot new wheels, so as the year comes to a close these tips for buying a car (either new or used) can come in really handy.
Because car dealers are eager to get rid of inventory this time of year, they often offer year-end sales and incentives. But these promotions don’t always guarantee a great deal — or a car that you can actually afford. Before you sign on the dotted line, take a moment to empower yourself with these year-end tips for buying a car so that you can afford a new ride that fits both your budget and lifestyle!
USAA Car Buying Service provided by TrueCar, Inc. USAA Bank receives marketing fees in connection with the Car Buying Service.
Between 01/01/2017 and 12/31/2017, the average estimated savings off MSRP presented by TrueCar Certified Dealers to users of the USAA Car Buying Service, based on users who configured virtual vehicles and subsequently purchased a new vehicle of the same make and model listed on the certificate from Certified Dealers, was $3,554, including applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives. Your actual savings may vary based on multiple factors including the vehicle you select, region, dealer, and applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives which are subject to change. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") is determined by the manufacturer, and may not reflect the price at which vehicles are generally sold in the dealer's trade area as not all vehicles are sold at MSRP. Each dealer sets its own pricing. Your actual purchase price is negotiated between you and the dealer. Neither TrueCar nor USAA sells or leases motor vehicles.
