SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- This Halloween, don't be scared to take advantage of some terrifyingly great deals available on 2010 and 2011 models which can potentially save consumers nearly 25 percent off a new car. TrueCar.com, the authority on new car pricing, trends and forecasts, has identified the best car deals available for consumers as they shop for a new vehicle.  These deals, available nationwide, reflect the possible discount from the Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) and include manufacturer's rebates and other incentives.

In addition, TrueCar.com has identified Saturday, October 30th, as the best day of the month to purchase a new car, according to the TrueTrends™ Report, which is a monthly collection of data-backed automotive intelligence on new car pricing and trends.

"Halloween weekend is the best time to buy a car this month," said Jesse Toprak, VP of Industry Trends and Insights for TrueCar.com.  "Consumers should really do their homework right now with prices of used cars staying relatively high, it might make more sense for a consumer to purchase a new vehicle rather than a slightly used one."

Some examples of discounts available on 2010 and 2011 models include:



Net Price*


2010 Chevrolet Cobalt




2010 Ford Ranger




2010 Nissan Titan




2011 Mitsubishi Galant




2010 Volvo XC70




2010 Dodge Charger




2011 BMW X5




2010 Honda Pilot




2010 Mazda MAZDA6




2011 Buick Lucerne




2011 Volkswagen CC




*Net price is the average national transaction price of a vehicle after incentives

Once consumers have identified the best vehicle for them, TrueCar.com's new Best Local Price tool, provides shoppers the Lowest Certified Price, a "no-haggle" upfront price from participating dealers.
