Best Labor Day Deals on 2010 Models
Summer is one of the best times of the year to shop for a great deal on a new car, but the good times pretty much end on Labor Day.
That's because manufacturers offload previous model-year inventory in preparation for the next model-year units heading to dealer lots.
To help point out the best deals, here's a list of 10 of the best remaining cash and loan incentives.
(Cash-back incentives are manufacturer incentives, a form of regularly advertised offers. Dealer incentives are known as factory-to-dealer incentives, a type of stimulus given directly to dealers to move vehicles. These incentives typically aren't advertised to the consumer, so it's important to do your research.)

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
