The last day of the month of course. Everyone has their quotas and bonus levels to meet. Be firm but gracious. Never be a jerk. They'd rather not sell you a car if they think they will get a bad survey.

In fact my salesman asked me to give him a HIGH rating, and If asked I will, but not the Financial Guy.
It's true the last week of the month is great time to buy.
Also when the new years models come out they need to push the older models. usually in the summer months. If they don't sell then by year end they really try to push them.
Always look online before shopping. dealers have lots of rebates out there:
low % rates
No charge options (mud flaps)
And an often overlook "Great" dealer is a New but used vehicle. I just bought (stole) a 2007 Chevy that booked out for $28k and only paid $18k for it. It was used and then traded in. It has the factory 5yr/100k mile warranty I get all the bonuses of a new car and I am paying less than $250 per month. It will be paid off before the warranty runs out.
And my last comment is... Go to your bank or credit union first get preapproved for your loan. You will know what you can afford and they cannot come back to you 3,4,5,6 times with hows this number sound? Tell them about your trade in absolutely last. Don't let them pad the new car.
Yep, I walked in to a dealership on the last day of the month (March 31) and drove out with a great deal, right off the showroom floor.
"Owner wants to move this car now!" I even had a car to trade and got a great price for that as well.
