April is coming to a close and some of us are looking forward to a tax refund dropping in our mailbox soon. If you combine returned tax funds with various dealer incentives and rebates available this month, you could get a new set of wheels for a great price. Whether you need a new car to replace a clunker or want to dump your old gas guzzler for one that gets better fuel economy, now can be a good time to buy. Dealers are in the final push to make their end-of-the month quota, putting car buyers in a position to negotiate and come out with a great deal on a good car.
For our April deals, we have 2012 model year vehicles that offer the best discounts—between 15 percent and 20 percent below MSRP. Keep in mind, though, that some dealers may be interested in negotiating further to reach their sales targets and to move vehicles off the lots. Also, you may find local deals and incentives, so check our pricing for full details.
The models listed below are just a few of our Best New Car Deals, meaning they are notable discounts on models that meet Consumer Reports' criteria to be recommended. These vehicles scored well in our testing, had average or better reliability in our subscriber survey, and performed well in government or insurance-industry safety tests, if evaluated.
See our full list of deals on 2012 models.
Online subscribers are eligible for hassle-free shopping and low prices through the Consumer Reports Build & Buy program. Unlike traditional car buying, there is no pressure or obligation to purchase. Participating dealers are held to high standards of competitive pricing and customer service. Simply click the "Build & Buy This Car" button that appears on the vehicle's model overview page to access the program.
