2009 – From a price perspective, this really is the best time to buy a car. Automobile Inventories will be down at year end , 2009 and the terrific deals on 2009 models will be over. The economy will turn around because all recessions end.

Timing is everything and if you’re in the market for a new car, good timing can actually save you money. There are many times throughout the year when there are excellent deals on new cars. It seems, everywhere you turn, there are calendar year-end deals, model year-end deals, discounts, rebates, and other promotions.

So, when is the best time to buy and can consumers take advantage of these deals?

Now is the time to buy! 2009 – there will never be a better time to buy a car. There are big incentives out there and dealers are discounting like crazy as they try to get aging inventory off their lots.

Auto sales are forecast to stay low until at least the end of 2009.

And while some think car prices will continue to drop, they probably won’t. Manufacturers have been drastically cutting production. That means that inventories will get lower, manufacturers will have less need to pile on incentives and dealers won’t be as worried about getting cars off their lots quickly.

2009 – from a price perspective, this really is the best time to buy.

I am in the market for a new car so I checked the rankings of some fuel efficient cars for 2008 based on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) miles-per-gallon ratings for city and highway travel. The EPA has a combined fuel economy formula of 55 percent of city mpg rating plus 45 percent of highway mpg rating. The rating for each vehicle is expressed in mpg as a city / highway ratio.
