The Biggest Cash Back Deals

With gas prices still low, the biggest cash-back deals this month are on hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and full electric vehicles, according to Forbes. These vehicles are hard to sell (with the exception of Tesla), so manufacturers are offering up to $11,000 in incentives!

For gas-powered vehicles, the biggest cash back deals are on slow-moving sedans like the Ford Taurus, Kia Cadenza, Hyundai Azera, and Volvo S80 sedans.

The biggest cash-back deals are actually on leases. See below for full summary.

If you're shopping for a new car, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to quickly see what deals are 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.
