IntelliChoice.com's Best Deals List for November Shows Auto Rebates Piling Up : Monthly List of Best Car Deals Indicate a Buyer's Market












CAMPBELL, Calif. (PRWEB) November 17, 2008

"November Best Deals have picked up where October's left off. It continues to be a buyer's market, plain and simple. If anyone is in the market for a car, especially an SUV or large sedan, now is a great time to do your homework and visit your local dealer," said James Bell, editor of IntelliChoice.com. "The heaviest rebates of all are for previously unsung vehicles. Certain November winners, like the Kia Sorrento, Kia Sedona, and Subaru Tribeca, knocked out more common value brands like Toyota or Hummer thanks to heavier incentives."

Bell noted that IntelliChoice.com's list of Best Deals continues to evolve thanks to the ratcheting up of rebates and cash incentives. "The Lincoln MKZ has been noted as November's best value near luxury car over the Lexus ES thanks in part to its $ 3,500 rebate. I predict that we will see more flux among manufacturers based on the impact of such high rebates. In the full size pick-up class, the Lincoln Mark LT 2WD was named Best Deal over the Toyota Tundra Regular Cab 2WD due to the Lincoln's $ 8,500 rebate. That is a number that would have been unheard of just a few months ago. This is undoubtedly a great opportunity for consumers, but they have to stay on their toes and make sure they have the most up to date Best Deals list to help identify the smartest purchases."

IntelliChoice.com's "Best Deals of the Month" identify new cars, trucks, and SUVs with the best ownership cost value in 33 respective classes. Selections are based on current car prices, market conditions and the lowest national manufacturer consumer new car rebate. In addition, IntelliChoice.com uses the latest information from numerous automotive resources to evaluate what it costs to buy, own and operate each new car model-year trim line over a five-year basis.

IntelliChoice.com Helps Consumers Do Their Homework

IntelliChoice.com updates vehicle data several times a month in order to capture the many expiring auto rebates and ongoing incentive programs offered by manufacturers—giving consumers the most up-to-date analysis. IntelliChoice.com's "Best Deals" designation enables consumers to identify how car rebates affect a vehicle's value throughout ownership and not just at the time of purchase. Ownership costs can vary significantly among different trim lines of the same model. Additionally, IntelliChoice.com continuously updates fuel costs based on the latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Vehicles designated as "IntelliChoice.com Best Deals of the Month" are typically cars and trucks that have good to great ownership cost values before any manufacturer rebate. A rebate can often turn a good ownership cost value into a great value, and a great value into an "IntelliChoice.com Best Deal of the Month."
