Best Car Deals Memorial Day Weekend: Chrysler, Nissan, And FordBy: Galen Velonis - May 24, 2014
Looking to buy a car this Memorial Day weekend? Want to get the best deal?
Look no further than the Kelley Blue Book.
24/7 Wall Street News said that, according to them, the best deal is the $3,250 cash-back offered if you buy a 2014 Chrysler 300. Coming in at second is the 36-month lease on a 2014 Nissan Altima.
Third? $5,000 cash back on Ford’s 2014 Expedition SUV.
Noticeably absent from the list is the General Motors company. In the words of the article they “did not have any vehicles in KBB’s top ten holiday weekend deals. Clearly the company is feeling a bit pinched following its latest recalls and may be testing whether it can still command full price for its vehicles.”
Dealers are also turning to the Kelley Blue Book to form the basis of any local deals that will come to your area for the weekend.
Cars themselves aren’t the only thing you can get a great deal on this weekend. Time Magazine ran a list of the best deals this Memorial Day. On it? Car accessories. “Car owners can save a fortune on oil, batteries, parts and washing materials during Memorial Day weekend,” PromotionalCodes said. AutoZone and other car supply stores are expected to lower their prices and offer great deals.
Not sure what your car needs? AAMCO has offered a checklist for your car before you drive off to get a deal anywhere:
Battery: Prevent failure by replacing a car battery that’s more than five years old.
Engine Oil: Increase mileage by up to two percent by using the manufacturer’s recommended grade of oil during suggested oil change intervals.
Service: Improve mileage by up to 10 percent on simple fixes and up to 40 percent by addressing any major unperformed maintenance or mechanical issues, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Tires: Enhance gas mileage by up to three percent by properly inflating tires to the manufacturer’s specification.
Not to mention all the other stores and outlets offering deals over the long weekend. It looks like, as usual, for this Memorial Day, you deck out your car and you can deck out you.
