CHICAGO — New car buyers looking for all the bells and whistles at a reduced cost should buy now, according to the editors at Cars.com, a leading online resource for new and used car buyers and sellers. To help shoppers identify what to buy, the site has compiled a list of the top 2011s on the market that do not change much for 2012 and offer greater incentives.
“Historically, this is a great time to buy vehicles that don’t change much for the next model year because you get all the comforts of a new model at a lower price,” said David Thomas, an auto industry analyst for Cars.com. “However, manufacturers did a better job managing their inventory this year and not as many 2011s are available, which is why there aren’t as many fire sales and blowouts. Our list highlights these 2011 deals – and for those interested in any of these cars, now is the best time to buy.”
