Are you looking for a new ride? Most people have a love-hate relationship with car shopping, they don't like the negotiations and you don't want to feel that you didn't get your best deal.

The best deals are right now, before the end of 2016. Usually the end of the month and the end of the year offers the best finance, leasing and purchase prices.

Why? Because it's the end of the model year, everybody wants to increase their monthly and annual sales and you can benefit from all of that. But still how do you get your best price? Here are three tips to help you get the most for your money.

  • Do your homework – figure out which vehicles you need to test drive and your budget. Limit your options down to 3 to 5 vehicles that offer the best in safety, price range and options you want. Then go to the manufactures website and see what incentives are available. Check video in written reviews plus current owner’s feedback.
  •  Get the most from your trade in - remember to clean up your vehicle before getting a value, think of it like staging a house. To get the most for your money you need to have the vehicle clean, no check engine lights and well-maintained. If you have a stack of receipts to prove you've done so, you will always get more money for your vehicle.
  •  Don't pay retail – there are many great ways to avoid the negotiations, and get a great deal! Take a look at the Costco Auto Program. The discounted pricing and seasonal events save you money and time. Currently, the GM Holiday Sales Event can offer you GM Supplier Pricing, available incentives plus up to a $700 Costco Cash Card. Costco offers very popular models during this holiday promo.


The Costco Auto Programis ready to save you money, time and hassle on your next new or certified pre-owned vehicle. With more than 3,000 participating car dealerships nationwide, buying a car couldn’t be easier. From SUVs to compacts, odds are your next new or certified pre-owned vehicle will be available at a participating dealership near you.

Overall, the key is to limit the frustration, hassle and get prearranged pricing with dedicated support and an awesome auto buying experience.
