Best Car Deals for Labor Day
August 30, 2012
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.
||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%|
