Why? It's a car. The average person will buy 6 in their life. They all depreciate. There's no real advantage to buying an older car than a newer one, if the difference is only one model year. The older car costs less but depreciates more.
Just focus on discount and the color you want. Stop being obsessed with saving an extra $500 because it was a "closeout" or the like.
I'm going to do what ever I can to make a deal any month, at any time of the month. 1/3 of my income comes from unit and CSI bonuses, not on the individual cars. It makes no difference if you come in on the 1st or the 31st, it's all just another chip on the board. That chip could be worth well into 4 figures. So shop when ever.
