    When is a good time..

    ..to buy a car in any given year (in terms of interest rates and such)? I'd like to steal a deal with 0% APR, maybe a Toyota, Mazda or Honda for me.

    When you have enough money to pay cash is always a good time (of course 0% financing is even better).

    Seriously, take a look at a newer used vehicle that has already suffered the "driving off the lot depreciation."

    My last car was like that. I bought my 06 Camry back in 06 with some 10k miles on it. I probably should do that again this time. However, I was just wondering how the recent car buying experience is these days. I did see an ad on tv the other day about 0% APR on Toyotas - not sure if they are 09 Toyotas.

    Re: When is a good time..

    I bought a car between Christmas and New Years. DUnno about 0% financing but the dealer's had a lot of cars discounted and were willing to negotiate...

    I guess not many people buy cars during that time of the year (too busy buying presents) so they'll willing to make more deals

    Re: When is a good time..

    Toyota is running 0% right now.

    I just got a Honda last month and they were running 3.9. Wasn't crazy about that, but we got some decent incentives and were really wanting to pick up some $$$ with a better mileage car (just in time for gas to get slashed).

    I've found the fall to be a good time, most of the new years are pretty much filling the lots and dealers are anxious to move last year's models.

    It's a good time to buy a car. Even the Japanese companies are suffering.
