Not exactly what I was saying....
Let's say you go to the dealer and they have a brand new 2015 and a brand new 2016 on the lot. The 2016 has some new model year mark up which is normal but its only a couple hundred bucks. It also has some very nice newly added features maybe even some additional HP or fancy sound deadening. Because you prefer to buy local rather than fly across the country you decided that 3% below invoice is a fair price for the 2016.
What does that dealer have to do on the price of that 2015 to make you buy it?
I'm saying there might be an extra $1000 rebate on the 2015 and maybe just maybe the dealer will come down another $1000 (3% below invoice -$1k). But if you decided to go with the 2015 the minute you drive off the lot your vehicle depreciated a full year more than the 2016 so you just lost an extra $4000.
