Best Summer Clearance Car Deals

August 20, 2015

Fall is nearly here, which means clearance deals are beginning to pop up at auto dealerships all over the country. Now is the time for manufacturers to really start moving out the 2015 merchandise to make room for 2016 models. Now is when we generally see lower prices, better lease deals, and other incentives on these "leftover" models.

Forbes recently put together a list of the 14 best summer new car clearance deals going on right now, including vehicles with as much as $10,650 lease cash, $5,000 cash back, and 0% financing. Vehicles on the list include the Nissan Leaf, Kia Soul EV, Cadillac XTS, and Ford Fusion Energi.

As always, I highly recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, RydeShopper and CarsDirect to see the best prices being offered in your local area.

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.
