Buy last year’s car
Buying a demo isn’t the only way to save on a near-new car. Dealers are always keen to off-load cars made in the previous year. That’s how 17-year-old Laura Kessels (pictured left) slashed about $4500 off the price of her new Volkswagen Golf automatic. ‘‘We were set on a Golf. We shopped around Perth to find the best deal and this 2011 model was even cheaper than some 2012 demonstrator cars,’’ says mother Hilde. It’s a smart choice, asVWAustralia says the difference between the 2011 and 2012 models is negligible.
