Looking for the best new car deals? Right now, the best deals are likely on the 2010 models still on dealer lots. The dealers want to close out the books on those models – which are still brand-new even though the 2011 models are out. That means they’ll likely be willing to negotiate, and some incentives may still exist on those vehicles. For 2011 models, however, the cash back is virtually gone, although there’s still zero percent financing available on some models from different automakers. What’s still as true as it’s ever been is that discounts and deals vary by manufacturer, and by model.
Best new car deals today may mean looking at some 2010 General Motors and Ford (including Lincoln) cars for zero percent financing or cash back rebates. Toyota, Nissan, Infiniti, Volkswagen, and Mazda have been offering zero percent financing for up to 60 months on many models – including some of the best-sellers. Honda is offering 0.9 percent to 2.9 percent APR financing on some models.
Here are just a few best new car deals to check out:
- 2010 Chevrolet Malibu – The popular midsize five-passenger four-door sedan offers attractive $3,000 customer cash back or zero percent financing for terms ranging from 36 to 72 months.
- 2010 Chevrolet Corvette – The ultimate sports car and one of the world’s best performance car bargains, the 2010 2-door coupe with 6.2-liter V-8 and six-speed manual transmission is available with either a $3,000 cash back rebate or zero percent financing for 36, 48, 60, or 72 months.

While there are other best new car deals out there, as always it makes sense to thoroughly check out what’s currently available, what your budget is, and maybe consider different trims. Remember that manufacturers offer the best discounts and zero percent financing on only some models – so do your homework.
