Best Used Car Deals for July

If you're in the market for a used car this summer, we've got good news -- there are a ton of great deals going on right now, many of which are continuing throughout July and beyond.

US News & World Report's Best Cars Blog has the skinny on these great deals. For instance, if you're on a budget, you'll want to see their line-up of the best used cars you can purchase right now for under $20,000. The list includes the 2012 Toyota Prius, 2011 Honda CR-V, 2012 Ford Fusion, and 2011 Nissan Frontier.

Additionally, there are a number of manufacturers that are offering financing incentives on pre-owned vehicles, some as low as 0%. These manufacturers include BMW, Chevrolet, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Volkswagen -- see below for the complete list.

As always, these deals will not last forever, so act now for the best selection and pay attention to expiration dates. Also note all these deals are on certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles.

If you're considering buying a used car, I highly recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to get the best deals.

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.
