Summer is easily the best time to get yourself a new car, mainly because when you get yourself a car, you don’t want to be test driving in the snow, rain or ice. You’re able to get a proper feel for the car because you won’t be as anxious and hesitant to really test the car and all of its features.

If you’re looking to lease a car, the best time is straight after the model has been introduced as the resale value will be highest and you’re more likely to save money on depreciation costs.
