February's Best Car Deals
February 13, 2014Love is in the air this week, and if you've fallen hard for a new car, chances are good you'll be able to get a great deal. According to Automotive News, GM has raised incentives to the highest levels we've seen in a long time. Most models come with $500 to $2,000 cash-back, and if you're considering leasing, GM is waiving 2 months of payments worth up to $1,000.
TrueCar released a round-up of other great deals going on this month. These include special financing, customer cash, and lease owner loyalty incentives. Below is a look at the hottest deals right now. Make sure to note expiration date.
I highly recommend you use TrueCar to find local dealers who are most willing to negotiate on these vehicles.
