The Best Labor Day 2021 Car Deals

This coming Monday is Labor Day, which marks the unofficial end of summer. And for those looking to buy a new car, this weekend is historically one of the best times to do so. That's because car dealerships are usually frantically working to move this year's vehicles off their lots and make room for next year's models.

However, this year is very different due to micro chip shortages, which have resulted in a huge drop in supply across almost all brands, resulting in big price increases. The good news is there are some models that have managed to avoid the supply/demand issues, and which still offer decent deals.

Using TrueCar's database of average selling prices, I compiled a list of the top 35 vehicles with the largest discounts off MSRP this week (this includes all incentives, rebates, and hidden dealer incentives).

Take a look at the full list below and see if any models you're interested in are on it. If so, this could be a good time to move ahead with the purchase. And as always, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle, CarsDirect and NADAGuides to quickly gather the best prices in your area.
