Year-End Car Buying Advice


Michael Flynn of Prime Source Lease

 I’d never make a vehicle purchase without consulting with an objective, experienced professional. We have made two excellent purchases with the help of Michael Flynn of Prime Source Lease and we’ve referred many downsizing clients to Michael when it came time for them to sell a car or trade in a vehicle.

Michael recently compiled a smart list of year-end tips that can save you time, money and hassle if you’re thinking about buying a vehicle.

  1. Beware of new car offerings this time of like “cash back”, “no payments till March” and low payments based on long amortization times (60-96 months). This can lead to “bad car debt”.
  2. If you are in business and need/want a vehicle, the year-end buy can give you a tax deductible depreciation this year (15%) AND a 30% for 2015.
  3. If you need/want a used vehicle, shopping between now and Christmas Eve can provide excellent opportunities (as opposed to boxing week). OR wait till the 3rd week in January (very motivated sellers!)
  4. If you own a “gas guzzler”, with the current low fuel prices, NOW is a good time to sell your car.
  5. Where possible , be SURE to use a good consultant/broker BEFORE purchasing or selling a vehicle. A small investment can literally save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars

If you are even thinking of buying, selling or leasing a vehicle I recommend you look at the Prime Source Lease website and have a chat with Michael.
