Ah, to be a new car buyer in November! Scanning my virtual rolodex of industry info I see that now is an excellent time to purchase a car as many dealers start the process to move their leftovers off the shelves.
Edmonds.com says that some 2007 models are being sold for a generous 30% off their sticker price. The biggest discounts currently available are on the obvious gas guzzling SUVÃ¢â‚¬â„¢S and pick-ups as buyers are staring at a possible $4 per gallon hit at the pumps in the near future. AutoData is reporting an 8% drop in domestic pick-ups for the year while the curve is even steeper in midsize SUV sales which have stumbled a double digit 14% in the same time period. Another segment collecting dust on dealer lots are large domestic sedans with petrol concerns also on buyerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s minds. Some of the best deals are currently on Chrysler products. For the second consecutive year a large amount of dust is accumulating on many models. Good deals can be had on the Chrysler Aspen and Jeep Commander. Out of the Chrysler realm the Isuzu Ascender is showing heavy discounts. European models seem to be moving. Only Saab has come forward to offer deep discounts.
