September may be more than halfway over, but if you’re in the market for a new car, there are still plenty of September car deals to help you save some cash.
Shoppers who want to finance a new car can take advantage of a number of zero-percent financing offers. In September, most mainstream car companies are offering at least some no-interest financing deals. Keep in mind, however, that some of the best financing deals are on cars from the 2013 model year. Car companies often offer better discounts and incentives on outgoing models to make room for the new 2014s.
Used car buyers can save some money by checking out deals offered on certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles. Depending on the year and model, some car brands are offering financing as low as 0.9 percent on CPO models. That interest rate is as good as what’s being offered on some new car models.
As the car market has grown to its pre-recession level, leasing has become increasingly popular. In September, car makers are offering consumers a choice between low monthly lease payments or low- or no down payment. Some lease deals even have monthly payments around or below $200.
