Best Car Deals for Labor Day
The upcoming Labor Day holiday is traditionally a good time to go car shopping. Dealers are trying to clear the lots and make room for next year's models.
But which cars are dealers likely to negotiate on? TrueCar.com has identified 5 popular models that are currently offering large discounts off MSRP. The following chart shows the average discount nationwide, but keep in mind you should be able to negotiate way better than the average.
I recommend using the CarWoo Deal Finder to negotiate the best prices on these vehicles.
|Vehicle||Segment||MSRP||Market Average||$ Savings||% Savings|
|2012 Chrysler 200 Limited||Midsize Car||$25,535||$21,403||$4,132||16.20%|
|2012 Ford Escape Limited||Small SUV||$27,195||$23,585||$3,610||13.30%|
|2012 Ford F-150 SuperCab XLT||Large Truck||$31,800||$28,143||$3,657||11.50%|
|2012 Toyota Camry SE||Midsize Car||$24,015||$22,301||$1,714||7.10%|
|2012 Honda Civic EX||Small Car||$21,445||$20,178||$1,267||5.90%|
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.
