Ready for Labor Day Car Shopping? Ten Impressive 2010 Deals

Car deals
Summer is one of the best times of the year to shop for a great deal on a new car, and that window usually lasts until Labor Day. Most manufacturers are trying to offload their previous model-year inventory in preparation for the next model-year units that are headed to dealer lots. And unlike autumn, when inventory levels of 2010 models may be low, many 2010s are still available. 

To help you sort through the best deals, we’ve compiled a list of 10 of the best remaining cash and loan incentives. 

When we refer to cash-back incentives, these are manufacturer incentives, which are a form of regularly advertised offers. Dealer incentives are bit more tricky to understand: Known as factory-to-dealer incentives, this is a type of stimulus given directly to dealers to move vehicles. These incentives typically aren’t advertised to the consumer, and dealerships aren’t obligated to share the incentive with the car buyer, so that’s why it’s important to do your research

Some models on this list, such as the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, have been recently redesigned or received significant upgrades for 2011. Other models are just poor sellers in general, such as the 2010 Chevy HHR and 2010 Infiniti FX35. 

Not all automakers switch to a new model year at the same time. For example, the Toyota Camry made the switch to 2011 in March.

None of these deals are good because none of these cars are good cars for its class. If they were, they would sell w/o these deals.


I'm not surprised that GM has the most cars on the list. GM is so used to pushing junk w/ all kinds of incentives they're just like a junkie.


@ Tony,

Seriously? The 5 series is not even a "good car for its class"??? Or the Malibu? How do you define good, "better than second place"????

Labor Day is a great time to buy a new or used car - in fact, many brands run very aggressive discounts over labor day weekend. You might want to consider checking out Bakersfield Hyundai - for a great deal on a new Hyundai or Chino Hills Ford - for a Ford and if you're looking for a Toyota I would checkout - THEY WILL SHIP!!!


In case anyone is looking for a terrific deal on a new KIA, look no further than Douglasville Kia or Covina Kia - both are offering amazing deals over Labor Day weekend!


@ dave
gm has many nice cars in the line up and future cars the new impala the camero,sonic, silverado/sierra, ats and cts
