How to spot a bargain at a car show
Car sales in the Bay Area have been booming over the past year.
From luxury SUVs to hatchbacks, car companies are taking advantage of the car-buying boom.
Car sales rose by an average of 9.3 percent in August and September, according to a report by Kelley Blue Book, a national car-sales website.
That’s a jump of 4.7 percent in just five months.
The rise is largely due to the fact that more people are buying vehicles in the country, said Kevin O’Connell, senior analyst with Kelley Blue.
It’s also due to a lot of incentives, such as $3,000 to $5,000 in car insurance discounts.
For consumers, the best way to score an extra $2,000 or $3 of cash is to take advantage of a special offer offered by car companies.
O’Connor said some companies offer cash-back deals, but he wouldn’t recommend doing that unless you’re looking to cash in.
O’Connor also said there are a lot more options for buyers.
For example, you could use Kelley Blue’s CarSaving Tool to get a sense of the cheapest, most reliable car to buy for the price.
You can also check out Edmunds.com for information on a car’s price, mileage, fuel economy, and other factors.
If you can’t get to a dealership for your next car, you can still save money by shopping online.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Find deals on new vehicles at the same time.
Kelley Blue rates new cars at a discount compared to older models.
This is called “value-based pricing.”
The price is discounted based on a comparison of the vehicle’s advertised fuel economy to the actual fuel economy of the model.
For instance, if a brand-new Volkswagen Golf gets 60 miles per gallon, the discount will be 50/60 instead of 40/40.
If the vehicle is a brand new Ford Focus gets 60 mpg, the difference will be 30/60.
It can be difficult to find a value-based deal on new models, but that’s what it usually means.
When you go to a dealer, make sure you talk to the salesperson.
They’ll likely be more willing to trade a cheaper car for a higher-quality vehicle.
O.J. Simpson is an example.
The Simpson car was one of the best-selling cars in history.
It was rated as the best of the top 10 models in its class.
However, when Simpson sold the car in 2008, the price jumped to $68,800.
It would be almost twice the price of a comparable car from the same year.
The car salesmen at O. Simpson would never trade a good car for the best vehicle.
So, if you have the money, you should make the right decision.
