Cars With the Largest Total Cash Back Incentives

This week, I sifted through all of the incentives data nationwide on 2012 and 2013 model year vehicles to see which ones are currently offering the largest total cash-back.

The 2012 Toyota Tundra is #1, with total cash incentives of up to $9,000. The 2012 Chevrolet Impala is a close second, with up to $8,000.

Keep in mind, however, these incentives are the maximum available nationwide. Your local region may or may not have these same incentives, so you'll need to check with your local dealers to confirm. The total also assumes that you will qualify for "Bonus Incentives". These are incentives that are dependent on whether you currently own the same brand of vehicle or a competing model, whether you finance through the manufacturer, or have a trade-in.

I recommend you use the RydeShopper to get prices on these vehicles and also to find out the exact incentives available in your local area. You can communicate with dealers through the CarWoo service.

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.
