When is the best time to purchase your own vehicle?

11 answers · Buying & Selling · 2 days ago
Best answer: Ideally, when you can pay cash in full. Beyond that, the last day of the month/Last day or the year even better. But the last part assumes you are a very good negotiator and you are buying from a dealer. Most people are not and should not.
