In the next few months, we will start car shopping.
I've got my sights set on the RAV4 Hybrid (website says $42k), and because its a 2019 feature, I won't be able to find any models less than 2019, hence, brand new purchase.
Never bought a brand new car though, I read about the 'great deals' people seem to snag from the dealers.
Could someone enlighten me:
what qualifies as a great deal? - I be aiming for a % off MSRP? or freebies?
What kind of inclusions should should I expect as a minimum?
What time of the year is best?
Should we trade in? or just sell our car privately?
Can you negotiate price if you finance? — I'm hoping for a 1% finance promotion that ive seen in the past.
Thanks to everyone who helps!
