Best Car and Lease Deals for 4th of July 2018

June 28, 2018

With the July 4th holiday approaching, car dealers and manufacturers are using the opportunity to clear out any remaining leftover inventory to make room for the newer 2018 & 2019 models. Some brands are offering special independence day bonus rebates, for example Honda is offering a hidden $1,000 rebate on some trims of the 2018 Accord, Mazda is offering $750 bonus on Mazda3, CX-3, and CX-5, and Toyota has increased rebates on teh Rav4 by $500.

I'm constantly keeping an eye 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 a list of models with the largest cash-back incentives, along with models that are selling for the highest percentage off MSRP right now.

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 end up with a great car or lease deal this 4th of July.

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.
