For people hunting for a new car, now may be the time to buy, with September marking the end of the model year.
This year there are even more deals, as more than a dozen models are getting makeovers in 2013.
There are 13 models that are going to be remodeled next year and that means dealers will be working to get rid of the old and bring in the new. So anyone looking for a deal, who doesn't mind driving an older design, right now may be the time to go car shopping.
When new car models come out, there are seldom many changes. But this year, Edmunds.com says there are 13 cars that will look nothing like they did before.
That could mean even better deals than people normally see at the end of the model year, with even more incentives and rebates.
The 2012 Avalon is one of the cars on the remodel list. Anderson Premdas with Keith Pierson Toyota in Argyle Forest said they're ready with deals.
"Avalon is a limited production vehicle with Toyota, so normally they don't have many large discounts available on them," Premdas said. "But here at Keith Pierson Toyota, we want to make room for the 13's, so we're not going to let money stand in the way."
The other 2012 model cars on the list are the Chevrolet Impala, Malibu and Traverse, the Ford Fusion, Mustang and Escape, the Nissan Altima and Pathfinder, the GMC Acadia, the Honda Accord, the Lexus ES 50 and the Hyundai Santa Fe.
So just how much of a discount can you expect on these cars? Premdas said don't expect a car to be half off, but the deals will make it feel that way.
"Between the savings and financing and overall discounts Toyota helps out with, and the fact that you pick up a lifetime warranty, its sure going to feel like half," Premdas said.
In reality, Premdas said it's more like a few thousand dollars off. But Edmunds.com recommends checking your region, not just your immediate area.
When you're negotiating, go to your lowest price first, then deduct any rebates. If choosing between low-interest or cash back, always check your numbers.
"They're offering discounts and incentives to customers where they normally wouldn't on certain models to clear out the inventory and make room for the new models," Premdas said.
Another thing to keep in mind is that when car makers introduce a new model redesign, the prior model depreciates more quickly and it may be harder to resell it. If planning to keep the car for a while, that won't have as much of an affect on the buyer,
