Great Car Deals Hard to Find Right Now

Good car dealsFinding a great deal on a new car is tough right now - largely due to the devastating disaster last month in Japan – and although production is slowly getting back to normal, some key components are still in short supply.

If you're looking for a good deal on a Toyota, Honda or Nissan, it might not pay to wait, as shortages will make finding a bargain harder and harder.

Analyst are predicting a shortage through the end of summer and most automakers are expected to cut back on incentives next month.
