I get asked quite a bit about when is the best time to buy a used car.  The short answer is there is no specific good time of year to buy a used vehicle.  There are too many variables with used vehicles that make it impossible to time the market.  It used to be that you would never want to buy a 4x4 or AWD right before winter since prices are at the high point.  That really has changed since now days most vehicles sold are SUV's and are already AWD or 4x4.  Regular cars are selling less and less each year.  Soon there will be less of a selection of cars to choose from since many manufactures are getting rid of low performing models.  There are more important money saving ideas for buying a vehicle than trying to time price based on season.
