Many people set aside the long holiday weekends such as Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day to buy a car. Sure, it's usually busy on the car lots. But the three-day weekend is plenty of time to get the job done — if you go about it systematically.

    You are really suggesting a customer should spend the largest part of a 3 day holiday weekend buying a car??? And you wonder why people hate car dealers. You are setting them up for a miserable experience and a wasted weekend! You should be able to buy the right car at the right price on Friday afternoon, and spend the weekend driving it to a great weekend getaway. Do a little research during the week, buy the car in 2 hours on a Friday, and be done with it.

    This is retarded. Memorial Day is the busiest car buying day of the year, and you expect everyone to be able to buy a car the same day? You expect dealers to communicate with you, negotiate, prepare a car, test-drive it and deliver it? You are delusional.

    Hey Philip, how about you come up with some new ideas. This was bad advice 10 years ago, and it's even worse today. Car buying shouldn't be this complicated.

    Yeah, LOL. Your best advice is to AVOID the Memorial Day and July 4th holidays. You are going to get some poor deals out it. Also, you're in the middle of the vehicle's year, so you're not going to be the "first on your block" to have that new model (if that matters to you), but you're not yet to the end of the year deals. Either close the deal by the end of the previous January (maybe Presidents Day or end of Feb at latest) or wait until Summer is over and start working for a deal for either the end of this year's model or get into next year's.
