The Best Summer Clearance Car Deals

August 21, 2014

Labor Day -- the unofficial end of the summer -- is just a little over a week away. And as is tradition, Labor Day weekend should be a pretty big sales event as dealerships are looking to move out their 2014 inventory to start making room for more 2015 vehicles.

If you're in the market for a new car right now, we have good news -- the sales have already begun! According to, dealerships are already starting their end-of-summer clearance sales, and there are lots of great deals to be had right now. To help you get started, Forbes has a list of what they consider the 15 best new car summer clearance deals going on right now, including the Audi A8, Cadillac CTS Sedan, Chevrolet Cruze, Fiat 500, and Nissan Pathfinder Deals range from potential financing cash back and discounts as high as $7,500 and financing as low as 0%, and leasing monthly payments as low as $99.

As always, I recommend you use TrueCar and RydeShopper for the best deal possible.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best 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.
