Why Is the End of the Year the Best Time to Buy a Car?

As you know, the end of the year is said to be the best time of the year to purchase a vehicle. That time of the year has arrived! The manufacturer’s incentives are the best that we have ever seen. All of the Conicelli dealerships have incredible end of the year offers.

Toyotathon is going on now until Jan. 4th. I could name about thirty Conicelli employees that have taken advantage of the ridiculous lease deals that Toyota has to offer this month. Anyone in the market for a new car would be crazy not to lease a new Camry, Corolla, or Rav4.

Holiday Sales Hours
Saturday, Dec. 26th 9am – 6pm

Monday, Dec. 28th 9am – 9pm

Tuesday, Dec. 29th 9am – 9pm

Wednesday, Dec. 30th 9am – 9pm

Thursday, Dec. 31st 9am – 5pm

Friday, Jan 1st 10am – 6pm

Saturday, Dec. 2nd 9am – 6pm

Monday, Dec. 4th 9am – 9pm

If you are interested in taking advantage of end of the year savings, please call Michael Hammond at 610-828-1400 ext. 1128 or email at Mikeh@conicelliautoplex.com.

Conicelli's Kinda-Silly Facts: Bam Margera BAMobile Giveaway in '05

During the Summer of 2005, Conicelli Autoplex and Wired 96.5 collaborated to host a promotional contest involving Bam Margera and his family. There were 50 keys won all summer at different events and concerts. The winner of the contest was at an end of summer blowout event at Conicelli's were every contestant with a key got the opportunity to start the “BAMobile”. The lucky key that started the vehicle was then awarded to the key holder.

The twist was when the winner decided to make a conservative decision for the sake of his family and traded in his “BAMobile” for a new Toyota Sienna. Shortly after the event, MTV purchased the vehicle from Conicelli’s and used it in “Jack@$$ the Movie”.

Check out the YouTube Video above to see an event that was held that summer at La Costa in Sea Isle City, NJ with the Margera family.

This eagerly awaited “Toyburu” is said to be powered by a horizontally opposed engine just like those found in Subaru’s top performers. You can check this car out in the new Gran Turismo 5

Wow, 35 MPG!!! Check out the All New 2011 Hyundai Sonata

A new four cylinder engine will help power Hyundai’s drive towards being the economy leader when it launches in the company’s most popular vehicle, the Hyundai Sonata.

Michael Hammond Jr.: “I’m currently driving an ’07 Honda Accord with a few more months until the lease is up. Since my last few cars were Hondas, I was thinking of switching things up and getting a Nissan Altima or possibly taking advantage of the incredible leasing programs this December month at Toyota and getting a Camry. After seeing this new Hyundai, my jaw dropped! I think that I found my next car! An inexpensive, hot looking car with a great warranty and unbelievable gas mileage. It almost sounds too good to be true!"
