Car Shoppers Trends: Updated Rebates, Incentives and Leases

More car brands are fitting their incentives and rebates local trends at the time of trying to entice consumers. In other words, this might mean that the nationally advertised incentives may not apply in your area. Edmunds lists in their blog a few examples that we found super helpful.

Let’s take for example Volkswagen, which announced special leases in Southern California only - from $500 to $1,000 off the tag price for friends and family of present VW owners.

Cadillac and Chevrolet are also running special leases for GM employees and eligible family members but only in the North-Central GM region.

Kia is keeping up to offering many specials including a program called "You Pay the Same for Your New Kia as a KMA Team Member" through the rest of June on 2008-2011 models. With this promotion, you can purchase certain models at invoice minus incentives.

After Ford announced the elimination of Mercury, all 2010 Mercury vehicles they now have $1,500 dealer cash. This money is good headed for purchase or lease and will end August 31 2010.

Last but not least, Mitsubishi has a special package to sell selected models at invoice price to members of the military.

What Our customers are saying

The lease rate I got by calling the dealer was $67 higher than the rate I got from Car Leasing Secrets. It’s all about the local competition. So happy with my Benz!

This is probably the easiest way to get quotes and compare them. I got one from each dealer in my city. One of them was surprisingly low. The quotes are free. No worries there.

What a great way to shop around! I wanted a Corolla. There’s only one Toyota dealership in my city but I got a quote for a Honda Civic and decided to go with that one because I got such a good offer.
