Car manufacturers are offering incentives for three model years of new vehicles — 2007, 2008 and 2009.
Here is a snapshot of some current incentives that offer $2,000 or more back to new purchasers. Cash offers vary by model and year and some require you to own a car of the same brand, so you'll need to check with your dealer for the specific model you're shopping for.
The list is far from exhaustive but offered to provide a snapshot of some of the available deals in the current market.
