Best Car Deals for Labor Day
But which cars are dealers likely to negotiate on? TrueCar.com has identified 5 popular models that are currently offering large discounts off MSRP. The following chart shows the average discount nationwide, but keep in mind you should be able to negotiate way better than the average.
I recommend using the RydeShopper to negotiate the best prices on these vehicles.

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.
