Buying a convertible is typically a seasonal thing. Many people consider purchasing a convertible during the summer when the weather is hot and it’s not likely to rain when you have the top down. You can get some really cheap deals on convertibles during the winter months because many people want to give in their convertible when it gets colder and not many people will be considering a convertible car during winter. People may also be looking to rid themselves of the summer fling convertible and turn to a family car suitable for all seasons during the run up to Christmas so if a convertible is what you want wait a little longer until winter before purchasing.
The very best time to buy a convertible is January/February. These seasons are still mid winter so it’s very cold and convertibles are likely to be on the market. In addition to this many people will have little to no money for buying cars after Christmas so there will be plenty of cheap deals for you to choose from. If buying from a car dealership, the convertible will have been sitting there for some months during autumn and early winter so the car dealership will likely be more flexile with haggling in order to get the car sold quickly.
This means during January and February there are more chances of having some great convertible deals available and lots of convertible cars to choose from. People are much more likely to be more flexible with sale prices so you can get some great deals on a car very quickly.
In addition to this these months are not so far off from spring. Purchasing as early as December would mean waiting out the Christmas season with a summer loving vehicle. Purchasing late January to early February means you can start enjoying spring as soon as it hits without waiting too long. The only thing you need to watch out for is April showers whilst out and about. To avoid this unhappy dilemma, get into the habit of putting the top up whenever you leave the vehicle. This will also help keep your car more secure.
For waiting out the winter months, you can easily bulk up your car by making sure it has mats on the floor and a blanket on the back seat to keep everyone as cozy as possible when it is cold outside.
