Best Memorial Day Car Deals

The Memorial Day holiday weekend is usually a good time to get a deal on a new car, and this year is especially great since auto sales are slightly down and incentives are up. Manufacturers and dealers are in a race to outsell the competition, which means there are plenty of lease deals and cash back offers available.

CarsDirect has been tracking the Memorial Day deals offered by various manufacturers (see below). There are 11 manufacturers offering special bonuses this year.

If you're in the market for a new car, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to compare the best deals being offered in your local area.

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.
