The July 4th weekend isn't just for cooking out and shooting off fireworks. It's also a great time to go new car shopping and get a great deal buying a new car. One of the biggest car sales weekends of the year, dealer's will fight to make a great deal to earn your business.
Automakers throw out some of the largest rebates and incentives around this time of year and dealer's know they must be extremely competitive with their pricing if they want to compete with the dealer down the street.
Why is the July 4th weekend such a popular time for car buyers and dealerships??
Keep in mind, an excellent price doesn't necessarily mean a good deal if the vehicle is not up to par. With the help of Consumer Reports, I've listed the highest rated new cars, per their strenuous guidelines, with the best potential savings below the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the 4th of July Weekend.
There may be good deals available on other trim lines of the vehicles listed below. Many times, even though an incentive expires, they will be extended or often renewed though out the following month.
As I always say, competition between dealers always gets you the best new car price. Research and compare vehicles online, then have dealers send you price quotes before ever stepping foot into a dealership. Once you have your quotes you can play dealers off each other to guarantee you pay the lowest price and get the best deal possible. Read my chapter on how to save the most money buying a new car for more advice and tips on the car buying process.
Note: customer rebates, incentives, and finance offers can vary by region. They may also change at a moment's notice, and are subject to vehicle availability. You should always check with several dealers in your area to get a good idea of your local market.

When negotiating a new car's price, it’s important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won’t know what's a good price to pay for the vehicle. I highly recommend using an online referral service such as TrueCar or CarClearanceDeals, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available.
In addition, the above sites will tell you which dealerships in your local area are currently the most flexible with their new car pricing. These sites provide valuable information for anyone thinking about buying or leasing a new car.
