With President's Day Weekend upon us, there's only one thing on the mind of every red-blooded American today. Time to go out and take advantage of all the amazing deals the holiday offers!
Why bother with a new TV or yet another piece of furniture no one will use when the hottest deals this year come in the form of a revving engine encased in steel, plastic and polished factory paint?
"Many automakers, as well as local dealerships, are advertising discounts and low-interest rates for this car-sales holiday, but not all deals merit a presidential seal of approval," notes Consumer News.
In its exhaustively researched analysis of this holiday's car deals, Consumer News reminds buyers that the best come by way of 2012 models that are now being replaced, such as the Chevrolet Silverado.
