The Car Coach says despite July incentive and lease deals, wait for fall

Written By | Jul 5, 2020

Are you looking at a new car, truck or SUV? The Car Coach is noticing that vehicle incentives are running a bit short in the new-car market. And for cost-conscious shoppers, certified pre-owned may prove to be an attractive alternative. The July incentives celebrating the 4th, have many manufacturers offering special bonuses that can get you an extra $500 – $1,000 in your pocket.

And while incentives fell month, there are still some good deals on new and used vehicles.

Currently, there are over 1 million lease returns that are due in the next couple of months.

We haven’t yet started seeing huge discounts or incentives, but most manufacturers are now offering payment deferrals, along with 0% financing. Some up to 84 months PLUS cashback – although some of these have been reduced recently. Many have also introduced loyalty bonuses, so if you do have a lease return coming up, this could put an extra $1,000 to $2,000 in your pocket.

My advice right now: If you don’t need a new car anytime soon and have the luxury of waiting, then wait until this fall.
