Each Saturday we review our server logs to determine people's most popular car search terms. Auto incentives this month are somewhat hit or miss, with some great deals from Ford, Chevy, and Kia, and some very limited offerings from some others. Especially weak is the overall choices on cashback rebates for many models this month. So lets go ahead and look at the top ten new car incentives and rebates searched:
Car incentives 2012
2012 Honda incentives
BMW deals and incentives
Toyota Incentives - The Winner
Just back in third place last month, inquiries for Toyota incentives has really risen recently despite what could be described as modest deals on Toyota 2012 models. Interest must still be strong on 2011 models which still has several zero percent financing specials going on as well as some large rebates. But shrinking inventory of 2011 models could limit people's ability to take advantage of the deals.
Ford Incentives - Runner Up
Febuary Ford Incentives are actually quite impressive this month with low financing and big rebate offers on even the newest 2012 models. The biggest rebates include several rebate offers of $3000 cash back on several truck and SUV models. Take your pick from over 18 different models that have deals on this month.
February Car Incentives 2012
It's hit or miss this month as we see some of the strongest and weakest car incentives 2012 has seen yet. For example, Hyundai incentives of 0.9% financing on several models with a few small $500 cash rebates thrown in isn't exactly the largest in months. 2012 Honda incentives also offer limited choices this month, with no national cash rebate offers and Honda 0.9% financing on several small cars under 15000 such as the Honda Fit, Civic, and Civic Coupe.
Small Rebates, Big Selection
There are only a few automakers offering rebates as large as the ones that Chevy rebates are offering. Chevrolet is offering rebates as big as the Ford rebates though without as many 0% financing offers. For most of the rest, rebate offers are small and few between. Cadillac incentives cover nearly the entire lineup but are limited to 1.9% financing which is still better then the BMW deals and incentives offered this month. BMW has some 0.9% financing for its X5 SUV, but most of the deals are 2.9% financing and going all the way up to 3.9% financing for the X3. February Kia incentives aren't to shabby however, while they may not have the rebate size of Ford or Chevy, they have several $1000 to $2500 cash rebates being offered on more affordable models including $1000 off new cars under $15000 like the Kia Forte. Most of these offers expire at months end so if you don't see anything you're not interested, it won't be long until we get another new batch of auto incentives. That's it for this week, check back next week as we talk used cars!
