CYBERSPACE (AP) — Looking for a good deal on a car? You might want to skip the final trip to the beach and head to the dealership, instead.

Cars.com say this Labor Day weekend might be one of the best times to buy a car all year.

An analyst for the Web site says as summer ends, manufacturers will be laying heavy discounts on current stock to make room for 2015 models.

Cars.com says large SUV’s and full-size trucks will have some of the steepest discounts, but cars in all sizes are expected to have enough incentives to make it possible to score a good deal.
