The Best Labor Day 2018 Car Deals

August 30, 2018


This Monday is Labor Day, which marks the unofficial end of summer. And for those looking to buy a new car, this weekend is historically one of the best times to do so. That's because car dealerships are frantically working to move this year's vehicles off their lots and make room for next year's models.

Just as every year around this time, there are lots of great deals to be had if you know where to look. Using TrueCar's database of average selling prices, I compiled a list of the top 30 vehicles with the largest discounts off MSRP this week (this includes all incentives, rebates, and hidden dealer incentives).

Take a look at the full list below and see if any models you're interested in are on it. If so, this is a great time to move ahead with the purchase. And as always, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the best prices in your area.

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.
