Best Used Car Deals for July

July 10, 2014

If you're in the market for a used car this summer, we've got good news -- there are a ton of great deals going on right now, many of which are continuing throughout July and beyond.

US News & World Report's Best Cars Blog has the skinny on these great deals. For instance, if you're on a budget, you'll want to see their line-up of the best used cars you can purchase right now for under $20,000. The list includes the 2012 Toyota Prius, 2011 Honda CR-V, 2012 Ford Fusion, and 2011 Nissan Frontier.

Additionally, there are a number of manufacturers that are offering financing incentives on pre-owned vehicles, some as low as 0%. These manufacturers include BMW, Chevrolet, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Volkswagen -- see below for the complete list.

As always, these deals will not last forever, so act now for the best selection and pay attention to expiration dates. Also note all these deals are on certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles.

If you're considering buying a used car, I highly recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to get the best deals.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, 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.
