Vehicles with the Biggest Discounts

Which vehicles are currently offering the biggest discounts? That's what Consumer Reports set out to answer in their latest analysis of the market.

With summer about to end and new models being released, the deals are getting better - especially on leftover models. Conumer Reports found that some new models are being discounted by as much as 20% off MSRP.

Using the RydeShopper, you should be able to negotiate even better deals. Here is the full list:

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The 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 Network

Select 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 / CarsDirect

TrueCar, 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.
