Auto sales are down for the count. Sales of American cars, in particular, have been K.O.'d.
In a vain attempt to get things moving again, American car manufacturers are piling on incentives and dealers are slashing prices. That means you can get some amazing - absurd, really - prices on some great cars.
Many American cars and trucks are going for below the dealer's wholesale price, according the real-world pricing data provided by Vincentric for AOL Autos. That includes truly top-notch vehicles that are competitive, on every level, with foreign competitors.
The Cadillac CTS could be the poster child for this crazy car sale of the century. Even at its full sticker price, the CTS is well worth the money. Here you have a car with the outstanding handling and ride qualities of its German competitors but with more room inside than a similarly-priced BMW or Mercedes-Benz.
The interior is also one of the prettiest in the business. Plus, the controls for navigation, climate control and entertainment are much easier to use than those found in most luxury cars. The CTS was also named a "Top Safety Pick" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
