Angular Front Exterior View - 2010 Ford Focus 2-door Coupe SEEnlarge Photo
The Focus looks like the least exciting new vehicle on the Ford dealership lot right now. Almost everything else has been redesigned recently, and the Focus is competing for buyers with the hot new Fiesta. But a new Focus is on the way for next year, and Ford dealers are anxious to get rid of the current one. They're offering a $3,000 cash back rebate - a jaw-dropping discount on a car that sells for as little as $16,000. With nimble handling and an innovative MyKey system that lets parents set limits on teen driving, it might make a lot of sense for a lot of families at that price. Our pricing partners at TrueCar tell us this is currently one of the ten vehicles in America with the most negotiating room, so you might be surprised how far dealers are willing to bend on the Focus at the moment.

As we've reported recently, the 2011 Hyundai Sonata has a chance to seriously shake up the mid-size car market. With its dramatic styling, solid value and class-leading highway fuel economy, it's winning a lot of praise in the press, including here at TCC. But dealerships still have a lot of 2010 Sonatas left on their lots. Thousands of them, in fact. They're solid, reliable cars, comfortable for the family, with long warranties. Right now, Hyundai is offering $2,500 cash back on each one--or you can qualify for up to 60 months of no-interest financing plus a $750 rebate. They need the space for the new car.
