Over the weekend, we heard from a TrueCar user who said he got the best price on the car he configured directly from the TrueCar website. TrueCar can lead to great savings. For example, TrueCar is keeping tabs on the prices of popular Japanese automaker models including Nissan, Toyota and Mazda. We’re beginning to like price data more and more. The data does not lie, March is a great time of year to get a discount from a Japanese automakers.
TrueCar reports that March has had the highest average new vehicle sales volume of any month over the past five years. March is when the fiscal year closes for Japan-based automakers and the start of spring sales events. Historically, the last day of March has been the best opportunity to get the largest discount. It makes it good time to get more for you dollars and maybe get the high-tech infotainment or safety packages.
Because Japanese automakers are closing out their inventory competitors are also reducing prices to compete. Since its the Chinese year of the Ram it seems fitting that the Ram 1500 pickup truck with an average discount of 14.3% is a good deal.
The “TrueSavings” reports the best deals for car buying savings. Some of the cheapest best deals and discounts TrueCar found are.
- An average savings of $5,821 or 18.9% on the 2015 Mazda CX-9 Sport 2WD.
- An average savings of $5,232/ 14.3% on the 2015 Ram 1500, Sport Reg. Cab, 4×2 Standard Bed
- An average savings of $4,203/ 10.9% on the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder 4WD SL.
- An average saving sof $3,272/ 10.9% on the 2015 Toyota Venza LE 4-Cyl FWD.
