Top new car lease and finance deals for July 2012
If you’re shopping for a new car, several attractive manufacturer lease and finance deals as well as a couple great cash-back offers are available in the month of July to help make it easier to get into a new car this summer.
To help move inventory off the lots, manufacturers typically offer promotional deals in the form of cash back (that can help increase your down payment) or low financing rates for a defined term. Meanwhile, particular leasing deals typically offer a combination of low down payment and low monthly payment for a nice short term to keep your out-of-pocket expenses minimal.
These lease and finance deals make July a great month to shop for a new car, so if you’re having a hard time choosing, perhaps these opportunities for savings will help you decide between a lower monthly lease payment or a lower upfront and financing costs to get into your next new car.
