Are you are looking for great value on a new vehicle? Now is the time. Many people are waiting for dealers to offer a fire sale. That may come next month, but there are some impressive deals occurring now.

Currently, there are over 1 million lease returns that are due in the next 3 months, so there is definitely going to be some great deals on certified pre-owned CPO) vehicles to purchase, and that market is already supersaturated.

Always make sure to check the current values on used cars before making an offer, as used car pricing have been dropping, you don't want to pay too much for a used vehicle because they only will continue to depreciate.

Heres a tip: when buying a CPO, I prefer to buy the brand from the brand. Example: buy an Audi at an Audi dealer, get a Ford at a Ford dealer. This will give you your best value, repair Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) and Recalls before the sale.

If your lease is due, it's possible you can get deferrals through your leasing company to extend your lease for a few free months. Be aware of the warranty factor, if you extend your lease term. Any issues outside of the warranty are your expense.

The video covers all the deals for the month of May. Some popular deals include: No payments for 3 months, zero interest rates and more. Read the small print to see if you can pay it off early without penalties.
