According to a new report from TrueCar.com, consumers can expect to enjoy average savings of 8.9% to 9.3% off of MSRP on December 10, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31.
"December is going to be the best month of 2011 to buy a car with manufacturers offering attractive year-end incentives and dealers motivated to move inventory to get to their sales objectives," said Jesse Toprak, VP of Industry Trends and Insights for TrueCar.com.
"It's also a good month to buy a luxury vehicle or large truck/SUV. But car buyers should remember to do their research before buying a car by locking-in an already negotiated price, which can result in significant savings and in a pleasant buying experience at the dealership."

This Month's Editor's Pick: 2011 BMW 335d
The BMW 335d offers something for everyone and now is a great time to take advantage of America's wariness of diesel, as weak demand translates to lower prices.
While diesel doesn't enjoy the best reputation here in the U.S., its negative characterization is not really applicable anymore, as diesel engines have evolved to become very clean and efficient. The 335d s no exception. Powered by a 3.0-liter I6 diesel engine, the 335d boasts 265-hp and 425 lb-ft of torque while producing 23 mpg City and 36 mpg Hwy. In addition to its fantastic driving characteristics, the 335d hosts a variety of luxury amenities and safety features.
The 335d is projected to sell at 16.7% on average if purchased on one of the 7 days listed above. Consumers can still expect significant savings on all other days this December, as well.
