Best Labor Day SUV Deals

The Buick Encore GX has the best APR deal on a small luxury SUV. With zero-interest financing for 72 months, this may be a great way to get behind the wheel of a feature-packed premium crossover. However, we think there's an alternative worth considering.

Separately, Buick is offering a $2,150 rebate. You can even get an extra $500 when financing at standard rates. That's $2,650 in savings. On a $30,000 SUV, these choices may come out to roughly the same payment. Check Encore GX Prices Near You »

    You'll have a hard time finding a bigger discount on an SUV than the Nissan Murano. Here in Southern California, all versions offer a $4,000 cash incentive. If you opt for the well-equipped Murano Platinum, Nissan will give you an extra $1,000 for a total of $5,000 in savings through September 7.

    Nissan incentives can vary based on region, so check local offers carefully. In some cases, Nissan's in-house financing arm (NMAC) offers Special APR cash that can be combined with 0% financing. Under the right circumstances, this could be a better deal. Check Murano Prices Near You »

      Best Labor Day Car Deals

      You won't see it advertised, but the Acura TLX features a $1,500 dealer cash incentive. However, you can more than double that with a $2,500 conquest cash incentive when coming from a competitor. Alternatively, there's a loyalty discount worth the same amount. That's $4,000 in potential savings.

      The catch is that the all-new TLX Type S is excluded. While the Type S does have a lease deal, other TLX styles will be a way better deal for luxury car buyers. The TLX currently ranks among the cheapest luxury cars you can lease, with payments starting at $299/month. Check TLX Prices Near You »

            Hidden Labor Day Deals

                Acura's most expensive car happens to have its largest discount. In fact, financing or leasing the NSX through Acura Financial Services can get you access to a whopping $20,000 discount. Although NSX prices start at $159,495, this happens to be the single largest discount on any car.

                Since the NSX can be hard to find under normal circumstances, your ability to actually find one could be limited. 2022 will mark the final year of production for the current NSX generation. Will this soon become a collector's car? That remains to be seen. Check NSX Prices Near You »

                Labor Day Car Buying Guide

                Is Labor Day a good time to buy a car? Holidays can be a great opportunity to enjoy additional savings. Holiday bonus cash ranging from $250 to as much as $1,000, cheaper lease payments ranging from $10-20/month, and offers like trade-in assistance cash typically make holidays a good time to buy.

                However, this year's incentives may be disappointing in light of an inventory shortage affecting many popular brands. Crazy deals have been drying up, so it's very possible that the holiday may offer no advantage whatsoever. Memorial Day and Independence Day have already proven this to be the case.

                What brands have the best Labor Day car sales? We generally find that brands like Ford, Chrysler, and Toyota offer some of the best holiday car incentives. These discounts may vary based on region. For example, Toyota deals for buying & leasing in Southern California differ from those in Northern California.

                When will Labor Day car deals start? Automakers tend to introduce incentives in the days and weeks before a holiday. This year, a number of brands aren't expected to announce next month's deals until September 1. We'll be highlighting the best deals by car type as well as based on car brand on this page.
