Best Memorial Day Car Deals
The Memorial Day holiday weekend is usually a good time to get a deal on a new car, and this year is especially great since auto sales are slightly down and incentives are up. Manufacturers and dealers are in a race to outsell the competition, which means there are plenty of lease deals and cash back offers available.
CarsDirect has been tracking the Memorial Day deals offered by various manufacturers (see below). There are 11 manufacturers offering special bonuses this year.
If you're in the market for a new car, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to compare the best deals being offered in your local area.

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
