Best Summer Clearance Car Deals

Fall is nearly here, which means clearance deals are beginning to pop up at auto dealerships all over the country. Now is the time for manufacturers to really start moving out the 2015 merchandise to make room for 2016 models. Now is when we generally see lower prices, better lease deals, and other incentives on these "leftover" models.

Forbes recently put together a list of the 14 best summer new car clearance deals going on right now, including vehicles with as much as $10,650 lease cash, $5,000 cash back, and 0% financing. Vehicles on the list include the Nissan Leaf, Kia Soul EV, Cadillac XTS, and Ford Fusion Energi.

As always, I highly recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best prices 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.

Step 3 Complete my Checklist
