No. If you are waiting on a tax return for a down payment, in most cases the dealership can use the rebates as the down payment. I bought a vehicle in January once and in February once and didn't get any rebates or incentives one either one. I bought my truck in September and got over $5,500 in rebates, and the deals are even better now in December. This is the prime time of the year to buy a new truck. Look at a few dealership websites close to you and they will have what specials are going on there on the website. I will absolutely never buy a new truck at the beginning of the year again.
