CHICAGO, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- As Labor Day approaches, car dealers and manufacturers are unveiling sales specials to help move what's left of the 2010 model year inventory. Shoppers looking for a holiday bargain can rely on the experts at Cars.com to help find the best deal. The site has evaluated incentives from all manufacturers and named the 10 best deals for consumers based on cash and loan incentives.
"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 just after Labor Day," said Cars.com Editor in Chief Patrick Olsen. "Most manufacturers are trying to move out their 2010 models to get ready for the 2011s that are headed to dealer lots. And unlike the fall, many 2010s are still available."
Top Ten Incentive Deals:
- 2010 Grand Cherokee: $5,500 cash back ($1,500 dealer incentive) or 0% APR (up to 72 months) plus $1,000 cash back
- 2010 Chevrolet HHR: $4,000 cash back (up to $5,000 dealer incentive) or 0% APR (up to 60 months)
- 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, Malibu: $3,000 cash back (up to $5,000 dealer incentive) or 0% APR (up to 60 months)
- 2010 Chevrolet Impala: $4,000 cash back (up to $5,000 dealer incentive) or 0% APR (up to 72 months)
- 2010 Nissan Altima Hybrid: $4,500 cash back or 0% APR (up to 60 months)
- 2010 BMW 650i: $12,500 dealer incentive and 0.9% APR (up to 72 months)
- 2010 BMW 5 Series (includes M5): $4,500-$7,000 dealer incentive and 0.9% APR (up to 60 months)
- 2010 Infiniti FX35, FX50: $4,000-$7,000 dealer incentive, 0.9% APR (up to 60 months)

- 2010 Volvo XC70: $2,000-$5,000 dealer incentive and 0% APR 72 months
"Some models on this list, such as the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, have been recently redesigned or received significant upgrades for 2011," Olsen added. "Other models just didn't have great sales in general, like the 2010 Chevy HHR and 2010 Infiniti FX35."
