Hi
I would be in the market to lease OR purchase either a Camry XSE or SE with XP Package or an Accord EX
The lease of my current vehicle expires in Dec of this year (2019). I have heard that when the new year model hits the sales market that is the time to get a good deal on the previous year model so based on that I was wondering what would be the best of the time for me to aggressively start looking into acquiring the new car.

I am near Tampa, FL so any recommendation about going to a particular dealer based on your experience would be appreciated as well. I dont mind driving to Orlando or other cities for an awesome deal

Thanks

    Sorry to say, but Florida is one of the worst markets in which to buy or lease a new car. Egregious fees, mostly.

    That said, the end of the year presents a couple of good reasons to strike a good deal. As you've noted, if there are any leftover 2019 models, dealers are keen to move them off the lots.

    And, with it being the end of the year, dealers are keen to move inventory of any sort to qualify for monthly, quarterly and year end bonuses from the manufacturer.

    Shop as many dealers as you're willing to travel to for the best price, but pay attention to the fees - dealer fees, in particular, can run up to $1000 at some dealers.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!

    Thank you so very much for the reply
    What is a "Dealer Fee" actually? And depending on the dealer we can try to negotiate our way out of it?

    thanks again

    The "dealer fee" is a naked grab for profit.

    Rather than negotiate out the fee, shoot for a lower selling price to compensate.
