ASK GARY: Do I truly get a better deal when buying a new vehicle on President’s Day Weekend?
Each February, we honor our past Presidents with the observance of the Presidents Day holiday. New car shoppers also have a reason to celebrate as automotive manufacturers use the occasion to offer their own incentives on new cars. The first President’s Day Weekend sale happened almost a hundred years ago, when a Boston car dealer had an ‘open house’ on Washington’s Birthday to boost sales at his dealership on Commonwealth Avenue. Over the years, all the retail stores have joined the President’s Day party featuring with their own promotions.
President’s Day weekend truly is one of the best times of the year to buy a car. This is due to:
New models: the new models are in the showroom. Manufacturers and dealers are always willing to support their first sales push of the New Year featuring the latest models.
Aggressive offers and programs: Both Volvo and Toyota are promoting special incentives for the holiday weekend. For example, Volvo is offering special leasing incentives with $0 due at signing. Meanwhile, Toyota buyers can take advantage of Toyota’s SPECIAL LOW APR of 2.9% for up to 60 months on all Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Inventory.

Buying a new vehicle can be easy if you’re well prepared before you ever enter the dealership. For you to get the best possible price on a new vehicle, learn as much information about the vehicle you are shopping for before you enter the dealership. Consider several vehicles and research the accessories, features, and trim levels available on each one ahead of time. Most of this information is online with tools that let you compare features.
Information is power and informed shoppers can save good amount off their bottom line this Presidents Day Weekend if armed with the right information! If you are in the market for buying a car, we invite you to stop in and see us over the holiday weekend and let us help you find the vehicle that’s right for you at a price you can afford.
Happy President’s Day everyone!
