worst day to buy used car seattle washingtonTiming is everything - with an imperfectly planned second leading to missed opportunities and wasted effort. You want to combat this, carefully scheduling every hour, trying to ensure success; but that success often proves elusive, especially as you seek out used cars in Seattle. You crave a bargain but never seem to find one.

Sound Ford Renton believes you may be searching on the wrong day. According to Cheat Sheet, there are certain holidays that deliver poor value for drivers - with used car prices rising and available incentives disappearing:


The 4th of July (28.0% Fewer Deals).
Mother’s Day (27.5% Fewer Deals).
Easter (22.2% Fewer Deals).
Good Friday (21.6% Fewer Deals).
Memorial Day (18.3% Fewer Deals).
Father’s Day (18.3% Fewer Deals).

These holidays - along with the months of April, May, June, and July - represent the worst times to buy a used car. Most dealerships have stabilized their inventories for the year and don’t require excess lot space. They can afford, therefore, to raise prices and limit their overall rebates. This leads to ever-climbing costs. While we strive to eliminate those costs, we recognize that many of our competitors embrace them, which creates a challenge for drivers. 

This is why we recommend that Seattle residents seek out used cars during the fall and winter, bolstering their chances for superior savings.
