I'm looking to buy a new car and asking if anyone knows of any dealerships offering good deals right now. Would be good to find one doing 0% financing. Make and model not that important.
Thanks.

Best deal on new cars? Buying a new car will result in such a large amount of depreciation that you might consider buying a junker and throwing a $100 bill out the window every month as an alternative way of wasting your money. If you must however, might I suggest Bob Dance, "Where everybody lies".

Almost every American car companies are offering 0% apr like GM, Ford, Chevy, etc. You just have to have good credit. Even Mercedes of Maitland is offering 1.99% apr on some of their new models last time I checked.

Depreciation is crazy on new cars. For ex. a 100g Range Rover sc new goes for 55-60g after two years and 15k miles later.

I would recommend VW. They have some great financing deals across the product range. Also, becareful which dealer you go to. I went to the one where they supposedly do what ever it takes and I can tell you they dont. They low balled my trade and the cost of the car was high.

If VW is of interest, I would recommend Aristocrat VW in Sanford. Talk to Collette, she is the internet sales Manager, and tell her Nick with the VW CC told you about them and she will give you a great deal. I know friends who have gone over there and mentioned me and they have paid invoice as well. Add to that 3yr/36,000 miles bumper to bumber and maintenence and I dont think you can go wrong.

I hope this helps.

I ended up going to Melbourne and got a great deal on my car! I was treated wonderfully, and I know it's a drive, but I saved thousands.

Ditto! Teaching a class right now!!! Woo hooo!!

I have NO CAR PAYMENTS at all!! Feels great!

Please consider buying a used car!!! It doesn't have to be a beater necessarily... Let someone else take the depreciation hit for you! Your wallet will thank you...consider what is called your "opportunity cost". What I mean by that, is , if you invest the difference, over the five year period of the car loan, and just leave it there, and never touch it again ..... how much will that money be worth when you retire?? In say, 8-10% good growth stock mutual fund? Go figure that out, and then decide if you REALLY want a new car.....

Ha ha you guys got me, listen to Dave all the time. Wanted to go see his Total Money Makeover Live @ UCF Arena in November, but we decided against since we need to travel for Thanksgiving. The most important part of the Baby Steps for us has been sticking to a budget. We are only a thousand or two away from having a 6 month emergency fund! It's been life changing for two 24 year olds, one a Seminole County School Teacher and the other a cab driver/student.
