If you're in the market for a new car, today just might be your day. According to both Time and TrueCar.com, a perfect storm of factors have collided to make this the best day all year for consumers to get the greatest deal possible on a new hunk of sheetmetal. With a perfect mix of dealer incentives and manufacturer rebates mingling with the fact that dealers are now staring down the barrel of end-of-the-month sales targets and a stack of 2011 models coming down the pike, savvy buyers should be able to call the shots.

Time reports that some models are seeing discounts of 19-37 percent off of their retail MSRP. If you're clever, you just might be able to snag the keys to a 2010 Mazda3 for a hair over $10,000(!) or a 2010 Hyundai Accent for just $7,341 – a savings of around 31 percent off of the Korean's sticker price. Head over to TrueCar.com for a look at other big savers.

      In general, the end of the month is ideal for buying a car. Many dealerships are trying to make a sales quota and will approve a deal they might normally reject to hit their sales targets.

      I want to find these deals but I don't think Minnesota is part of the deal haha

      I was going through the Sunday flyers for Detroit and they had a 2010 Escalade AWD that was originally $72,000 selling for $54,000 brand new.

      Of course with ability to steal them so easily, the insurance rates might eat away those savings. lol

      2010 Mazda3 for $10k!? That's not a deal, that's a steal!
        • 4 Years Ago
        My eyes popped when I saw that too. I drive an MX5 ... but you almost *have* to pick up a Mazda3 if it's on sale for $10k!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah, the most fun to drive car in its segment for 10k;
        gotta be kidding me!
        • 4 Years Ago
        $10k if you live in Los Angels, SF bay area is $13k.

      i also believe right now is the best time to pick up a car. we just picked up a cts wagon for almost 32% off.

      Overweight, old guy in an ugly shirt buying a convertible vette. Talk about breaking stereotypes.

      In all fairness, it appears to be an MT instead of an AT.

      A new Mazda3 for $10,000 is not real. As usual "truecar" is talking out the side of its neck.
        • 4 Years Ago
        lol..actually, yes we are - for the 2nd car. 1st car is a Lexus IS350.

        I want the Mazda3 for me to have a low cost commuter car, giving the IS to her.

        She wants me to keep the IS350 and add the RX350 for her.

        one of these options is a lot cheaper, the other is a lot nicer. That is what I get for spoiling her.

        Wait... you and your wife are cross shopping a $13k Mazda 3 with a $38k Lexus RX350?
        • 4 Years Ago
        I did get two dealers call me back last night offering 13k for the 2010 Mazda 3 sport with manual transmission...then the wife said "ew, not another Mazda...I want the Lexus RX350.." ugh...car shopping with pregnant wife = tears of frustration

      Brand new 911 Carrera Black/ Black; 24 month lease for $529/month with $5k down. No I'm not joking, I need another sale this month...
        • 4 Years Ago
        What, are you serious?
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is absolutely true. Just picked up a 2010 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG for 20k...I wish.
      But I'm stopping by my local dealerships to see what I can price tonight.

      This picture reminded me of Jeremy Clarkson tried to buy a Corvette when they were trying to buy a car for $1K.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Would a Mazda dealer in So. Cal. please contact me with that $10k Mazda3 deal and I will buy one this weekend. I will assume it's the hatch not the sedan.

      thank you
