Car sales have strong opportunities to grow starting with this March. Of course, car shopping would require you to skip March Madness for a few hours, but, hey, your bracket was going to bust
How much can I save? Lots. Fusion sales plummeted 35.1 percent in February as non-hybrid 2017 models averaged 70 days on dealer lots — well past the 50-day average for all 2017s. Now Ford offers $250 to $2,750 in cash incentives on the Fusion. Qualified shoppers can get discount financing as low as zero percent, too. But you should act fast, because the deals in some regions expire March 15. Are there discounts on the new Fusion Sport, too? You bet. We searched five ZIP codes, and cash rebates on the 325-horsepower Fusion Sport top out at $2,000. That's proportionately less because of the Sport's mid-$30,000s starting price, but it's nothing to sneeze at.
How much can I save? More than 10 percent, if you buy a lower trim level. Altima sales slid 6.3 percent in February as the sedan averaged 75 days on lots. This month, Nissan offers cash discounts of $2,250 to $3,000 on the Altima through March 31. What about discount financing? Qualified shoppers can get rates as low as zero percent.
How much can I save? Between $2,250 and $3,000. That's what Nissan is offering in cash rebates through the end of the month on the Murano, an SUV whose sales fell 25.2 percent in February versus a breakneck year-ago month. The Murano averaged 44 days on dealer lots last month, which is just under average, but it's an SUV — which is what everyone and their mother, uncle and Facebook besties are buying these days . What about discount financing? FICO studs can score rates at zero percent.
