The Fourth of July brings a number of things to mind—fireworks, family, friends, cookouts, and American independence. But if you're in search of a new set of wheels you should know that Independence Day is also a great time to car shop. Almost every automaker rolls out deals on new cars around the Fourth of July, and some of the rebates being offered in 2017 are well worth checking out.

Most car manufacturers offer incentives around holidays, and the Fourth of July is no different. They do this, in part, because many buyers get the day off and have more time to shop. Plus, dealers are eager to clear space on their lots because the new models begin arriving about this time.

If you are looking to buy a new car, shopping around Independence Day is one of the best times to do so. There are plenty of deals being offered, from generous cash back rebates to low APR financing. While you will need to qualify for any low interest offers, you can take advantage of the cash back deals even if you have credit problems.
