Best Fourth of July Car Deals
Holidays can be a great time to shop for a new car and this Independence Day is no exception. Though new car sales have been strong and car companies have been offering fewer incentives overall, some major brands are rolling out special Fourth of July deals.
Honda sales jumped 13 percent in June 2013 compared to June 2012, but that hasn't stopped Honda from offering some very good Fourth of July incentives. Most Honda models, including the Honda Civic, Honda Accord, Honda CR-V, Honda Odyssey and Honda Pilot, are currently available with 0.9 percent financing for up to 60 months.

However, if you want an even lower financing rate, check out deals from Ford and Chevrolet. Ford is offering no-interest financing for up to 60 months in most regions on models including the Ford Taurus, Ford Mustang, Ford Focus and Ford Explorer. Chevrolet is offering no-interest financing on many models, including the Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Equinox and Chevrolet Traverse.
If you really take the independence in Independence Day to heart and don't want to commit to buying a new car, there are plenty of Fourth of July lease deals you can take advantage of. Toyota lease deals vary by region, but in most parts of the county, you can lease a Toyota Camry for less than $200 per month, and a RAV-4 can be leased in many areas for less than $250 per month. Depending on where you live, you can lease the Mazda3 for about $200 per month and the Mazda CX-5 for about $300 per month. Both Mazda lease deals don’t require any money at signing and no first month’s payment.
Luxury brands also have some Fourth of July sales. You can lease a BMW 328i for $349 per month, or finance one at 3.05 percent. Mercedes doesn't have financing offers on the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, a direct competitor to the BMW 3-Series, but it does have the C250 sedan available for lease at $349 per month. The Lexus RX 350 is available with lease payments of $399 to $429 per month, depending on where you live, or with 1.9 percent financing.
