Hybrid Tax CreditsIf you've been putting off buying a hybrid or diesel vehicle, and want to cash in on the Federal tax credits, you'd better hurry, as they're set to expire December 31.

But tax credits are still available on the following 2010 and 2011 hybrids:

  • Nissan Altima Hybrid, $2,350
  • BMW X5 and X6 Active Hybrids, $2,200
  • Mercedes-Benz ML450 Hybrid, $2,200

  • Mercedes-Benz GL 350 BlueTec, $1,800

    If you're interested in any of these vehicles, now's the time to act.

    My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

    TrueCar and Edmunds 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.
