The Biggest Rebates Available Now

August 23, 2012

This week, I've compiled a list of vehicles that come with rebates of at least $1,000.

This includes both cash-back rebates, as well as "hidden" dealer rebates. The hidden rebates are given directly to dealers by the manufacturer. Dealers are not obligated to pass the rebate to the consumer, and most will not reveal the fact that there's even a hidden rebate available.

The good news is that you can usually get that hidden rebate passed on to you via a lower transaction price if you negotiate aggressively, or use a service like CarWoo

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise 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.
