10 Best New Car Deals for December

December 14, 2017

With car sales slowing, inventory building up, and incentives increasing - there are some great deals to be had. Kelley Blue Book (KBB) put together a list of what they consider the best lease and cash-back deals this month on popular and well-rated vehicles.

Lease deals include monthly payments as low as $169 per month with $1,999 down on vehicles such as the 2017 Honda Civic. And you can get as much as $7,000 cash back when purchasing vehicles such as the 2017 Ford Expedition. KBB's top 10 deals for December are below.

To maximize your deal, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see what your local region is offering.

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.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
