(NEW YORK) -- If you're in the market to buy a new car, Tuesday may not be the best day to do so. TrueCar.com says March 6 is one of the worst days of the year to purchase a new vehicle.
According to the website, which collects car-buying data in an effort to help users find the best bargains, the average car buyer will only get about six percent off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price on March 6, compared to the best deals of 8.5 percent to 9.5 percent off MSRP during the last weeks of December.
Mondays and Tuesdays are usually bad days to purchase a new car because business is slow and the beginning of any month is when prices are higher. Dealers are more inclined to give customers a break at the end of the month and on weekends.
If you do wait on buying a car, just don’t go shopping on Tuesday, April 10 because that’s the day TrueCar says is absolutely the worst to head to your dealer. The discount off the sticker price is expected to be only about 5.1 percent.
