Summer is quickly coming to an end, but great deals on new cars certainly are not! In fact, now's the time that dealers are starting to get desperate to move all the remaining 2016 models. We're seeing potential savings off MSRP of $4,000 on some popular vehicles.

Consumer Reports came out with a list of what they consider the 10 best end-of-summer deals going on right now. Vehicles on the list performed well on tests, and include the 2016 Ford F-150, 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid, and 2016 Hyundai Sonata. The full list is below.
