Best Car and Lease Deals for 4th of July 2015

July 2, 2015

With the July 4th holiday approaching, car dealers and manufacturers are using the opportunity to clear out excess inventory to make room for the new 2015 models.

I'm constantly keeping my eyes on car incentives, so I generally know which manufacturers and dealers are offering the best car deals and lease offers. This week, I rounded up an overview of what each manufacturer is offering.

In order to maximize discounts on the vehicle of your choice, I recommend you check out prices listed on TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise. Between these two sites, you should definitely end up with a great car or lease deal this 4th of July.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar 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.
