Incentives boost booming car sales


WEST SALEM, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Analysts expect 2013 to be the best year for US car sales since the economic recession, and locally, auto dealers agree.

The forecast shows the country on pace to hit 15.6 million new cars sold this past year. That's despite the average age of a used car on the road being eleven years old.

Pischke Motors said they've been busy over the holidays moving their remaining 2013 models. With end of year incentives, they said now is a good time to be shopping for a new vehicle. 

"You can save up to five or six thousand dollars, so there are some really good incentives on cars right now and trucks as well," said Rahn Pischke. "It varies on model. Some models are more in demand so there's less incentive, but overall, new cars, used cars, we're wanting to move them as every other dealership is."

Pischke advises buyers to do their research online before heading to a dealership to find a vehicle that best suits their needs and budget.
