Dodge Offers Large Incentives for December
In some cases Dodge has even approved a combination of rebates and low-interest loans - something that rarely happens in car sales.
The best of these deals are for 2010 models, but there are several great incentives on 2009 models as well - especially leftover vehicles. Where there's a choice between a rebate and a low-interest loan, in most cases you're better off taking the rebate. Here's a closer look at what Dodge is offering right now:

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
