Car buying during and after the holidays

If you're bundling up to kick some tires, you may find your pick of cars on the lot and salespeople willing to make deals.

"Between Christmas and New Year's is absolutely a dead, dead time at the dealerships," says Lauren Fix, author of "Lauren Fix's Guide to Loving Your Car."

Once the holiday season is over, snow days can keep people away from dealer lots, and preparing for tax day keeps others from adding more expenses to their lives.

If you're buying in the winter, it's important to look at these factors, including the vehicle's cold-weather features, what new models are planned and your budget.

Just like people winterize their vehicles, think about winterizing your approach to buying a car in lower temperatures and the off-season.
