10 Best New Car Deals for September
With car sales slowing, inventory building up, and incentives increasing - there are some great deals to be had. Kelley Blue Book (KBB) put together a list of what they consider the best lease and cash-back deals this month on popular and well-rated vehicles.
Lease deals include monthly payments as low as $199 per month with $2,499 down on vehicles such as the 2018 Acura ILX. And you can get as much as $4,500 cash back when purchasing vehicles such as the 2017 Ford Focus. KBB's top 10 deals for September are below.
To maximize your deal, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see what your local region is offering.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe 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 NetworkSelect 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 / CarsDirectTrueCar, 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.
