If you’ve been putting off buying a car, the wait might have been worth it. Labor Day weekend could be the right time to hit the dealerships for some impressive savings on a new vehicle.
Why Labor Day? It’s a time of year when manufacturers are trying to get as much old inventory off the floor as possible and are willing to use generous promotions to do so.
Personal finance site GOBankingRates and car-shopping company Autobytel Inc. recently looked at some of the most generous Labor Day deals available on 2014 crossovers and SUVs, luxury cars, sedans, sports cars, and pickup trucks. Prices included here are based on manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP). Autobytel picked the deals after surveying hundreds of cash-back and financial promotions from popular car manufacturer websites.
Just be aware all car deals end with an asterisk (*), and these Labor Day deals are no exception. GOBankingRates provides the following disclaimer:
