Best Customer Cash Deals: August 2015

Cash-back offers are a popular way for automakers and dealers to entice new car shoppers to opt for their vehicles over others.

Cash deals are pretty simple to understand: The dealer generally takes the advertised cash amount off of the final agreed upon price of the car. Think of a cash-back offer as a coupon worth a few hundred or thousand dollars.

If you have the cash to buy a new car outright, we've assembled a list of the best customer cash-back offers for the month of August, 2015, right here.

        I think AOL is trying to drum up a new list of people interested in (or at least thinking about) buying a car, then they sell the list to car sellers.  

        Same with all the other click-bait stuff they put out.

      If we had the money to buy a car for cash - we wouldn't be looking up your non-existent tips to save money!!!

        Sure you would - as no one wants to pay more than they have to.  And almost everyone goes along with the $149.00 "document fees" which the manufacturer pays back to the dealer for preparing the title, etc.  This is called "ADP" in dealer lingo which meand additional dealer profit.  EVERYONE pays too much for a car.  They fall in love with it and the dealer has them at that point.  I just bought a new truck in December, 2014.  I was going to pay cash (yes I'm lucky that I could do that) but they offered me a 0% - 36 month loan AND $500.00 additional mfg. rebate if I borrowed money.  Now that doesn't make sense.  The MFG should offer the $500.00 if you pay cash.  At any rate they tried to charge me the $149.00 (another dealer was going to chg $549.00 doc fee) and I told the salesman that would be  deal breaker.  That I knew the MFG would reimburse them for their paperwork and he had to "ask" if it could be eliminated - which of course they did.  I work for 2 car dealerships (not in sales) and I'm seeing they're all SNEAKY!

          If you work for two dealerships, then you know they make money from their Flooring/financing. Even if you pay cash, they are establishing a new account and all your information is out there for future contacts.

          Excuse me but I was a dealer for 30 years and the manufacturer never reimbursed me for the "Doc fee". It was simply to pay me for processing the paperwork with DMV.

      Once again I have been SUCKERED into believing that AOL would actually put the Tips / content of the story once you click over. Instead its unrelated and ADS.. WAY TO GO AOL! Nothing like trying to keep your customer's  HAPPY.

      the simplest  way to bring the prices down is just don't buy one...........

      If you use TRUECAR.com be positive you want to buy a vehicle because they want your phone number, and from my recent experience with it you will get calls from many dealers for at least two months. If you are just researching for the best price offer you want to give, then put in a phony phone number. The sales staff get paid by selling cars so you cannot blame them for calling you, and the dealers should get a fair profit. Most of the salespeople were very professional I have to admit. I ended up buying a pre-owned CUV at a 72 hour sale in the Phoenix area and got exactly what I wanted for 15,500 minus 1,500 trade in on 2000 Honda Accord with 204k miles still running as new for a net of 14,000 + taxes. They gave me the Carfax and the prior lady owner had bought it there and they'd serviced it there since new, they showed me every service ticket since it was new, she'd traded it in for a new model of the same CUV. Use Edmonds.com, and KBB.com and write it all down and carry with when you step onto the dealership floor.

      Make them and offer, and if they start upping the price, say you have an appt. and another dealership and need to be there in an hour, and leave. They will call you back or try to work with you. When you go into the Finance Office know exactly what you'll pay for and not one penny more. Remember their $800.00 custom alarm can be bought at any car audio shop for $200.00, get it tinted your self, and never pay for clearcoat or undercoating. Treat them with respect it's their job to sell, you can always leave if you get a lemon of a saleperson. Our salesman Mike was excellent.

        @jimbo1350

        What is wrong with a bicycle?  I rode a recumbent bicycle for ten years, back & forth to work...16 miles one way.  I believe if every one rode a bike once a week for one reason or another, there would be a lot less overweight people all over the US, the auto insurance rates might take a small dive, drivers would have a lot more respect for bicycle riders and there would be less pollution.  There are at least 100 more reasons but I don't want to bore a person like you with that notion.  You are probably narrow of mind or overweight or one of those road rage people who thinks the road is their own!

           Wow... a comment regarding a bicycle does not deserve  a diatribe  regarding the weight  or intelligence of the writer.   This  complaint was, as were others, that this was an ad driven ruse, not a helpful tip list.. May you continue to ride your bike safely, but please, don't assume things regarding others. No one made any derogatory comments to you or your bike!

          Nothing wrong with riding a bicycle.  Jimbo was just saying that this article seemed to be written by someone who rides a bicycle.  A bike rider wouldn't be the best source to learn how to save money buying a new car.  If you haven't had experience in car trading, you just don't know the ins and outs.  Now maybe if someone wanted to buy a new bicycle, you might be the go to guy for information what to get.   No body was trying to put you bike riders down.  Lighten up a bit.
