Many vehicle manufacturers plan to take advantage of the extra shopping time consumers will have over the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend (Sept. 3 – 5). Financially qualified shoppers may find summer’s last weekend the best time to score great financing and lease rates.

Jonathan Banks, executive analyst here at NADA Used Car Guide said, “We’re seeing several deals in almost all segments.  Everything from zero-percent financing to six-year financing terms with cash back are on the table.”

Brand-conscious shoppers who want to drive the latest in luxury will find significant deals from Lexus, Lincoln, BMW and Infiniti. Mainstream shoppers who need a new family-oriented vehicle may encounter advantageous offers from Toyota, Hyundai, Volkswagen and Mazda.

If the cost of buying a vehicle isn’t in the household budget, and leasing doesn’t fit fiscal requirements, shoppers might consider purchasing something in the pre-owned market. Our NADA Used Car Guide’s August Perspective report provides information on Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle programs, which offer significant savings when compared to new models.
