IRVINE, Calif., March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Car shoppers can learn of 10 very affordable opportunities to purchase a new car with both no money down and monthly payments of less than $300 in the latest 10 Best Car Deals list from Kelley Blue Book www.kbb.com, the leading provider of new and used car information. This month's list of new-car deals – hand-picked by KBB.com editors and valuation experts -- offers vehicle options with financing rates as low as zero percent and cash back up to $2,500.
"There often is a misconception that the best deals on new cars only are available toward the end of the year, as dealers are trying to clear current model-year inventory," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for KBB.com. "However, there are some great buys available for car shoppers throughout the year, including many popular new models with offers that will have a minimal impact on shoppers' wallets."
