Best Deals on Top Selling Cars
This week, Forbes compiled a list of the deals being offered by the top 15 best-selling cars. Surprisingly, most of the vehicles on the list are offering some great incentives.
The biggest surprise, however, is the Honda CR-V, which has no advertised lease or cash-back deals, yet comes in as the 11th best-selling vehicle on the list.

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.
