The Time Is Now for Getting Sweet Deals on Popular Cars — Dollars and Sense

car dealer

It is that time of year again, the time of year when auto dealers are desperately trying to rid themselves of the previous year’s models still taking up space on their lots so that they can make room for the new and improved editions on their way in from the manufacturers.

This, of course, benefits the consumer because there is a lot more room to “move and shake” with dealers in hopes of getting a sweet deal on a new ride. However, not every discounted model from the previous year is a good buy.

So, how can you tell what’s good and what isn’t? To help you along the way, Bankrate has released its list of the top models from 2012 that offer the biggest bang for your auto buck.
