It’s not uncommon for schools in the southeastern part of the United States to start back in August. I know many of my northern friends and family are heading back right after Labor Day. While this is a time to stock up on school supplies, it’s also a great time to add a new car to the family!
Labor Day weekend is a great time for sales. Any holiday is great for deals, but I feel like Labor Day is the beginning of the rush of holidays. Many auto dealers are offering Labor Day Sales Events that are happening much longer than the long weekend, and you’ll have a wide selection of cars to choose from.
This is a great time for weather to drive a car. If you’re like me and you have researched your next car, then you can take your time and spend quality time test driving. No need to worry about snow, and at least in my area there isn’t much rain to contend with.
You have time before you’ll need to make your first payment! Pearson Chrysler Jeep in Richmond, Virginia is offering no payments for the first 90 days, so it will be the end of the year before your first car payment is due. They’re also offering 0% APR for the first 75 months – that’s more than 6 years – on the Jeep Renegade and Jeep Compass. (I have friends who swear by the Jeep brand and this is such a great offer for a new Jeep!)
Get ahead of the process by getting pre-approved through their website before you head in. I’m a fan of having everything together before making such a big decision. It helped me last December, and it could help you right now.
Avoid the crowds. College students are back on campus, many parents are off on last minute trips with families – soaking in the last days of summer break. Take advantage of the lull in foot traffic and go for a test drive!
