Top 10 Cars Dealers are Desperate to Sell

July 2, 2009

Dodge Caliber With GM and Chrysler both going through bankruptcy, it's not a surprise their cars dominate the top 10 slowest selling cars list.

The list is made up of cars that would take the longest time to sell out based on current inventory and sales figures.

Car manufacturers prefer 60 days worth of inventory. This ensures enough color and options selection on the lots, yet keeps supply limited so prices don't have to be slashed.

VehicleInventory
1. Dodge Caliber223 Days
2. Dodge Avenger211 Days
3. Pontiac G6211 Days
4. Kia Optima166 Days
5. Dodge Charger163 Days
6. Jeep Patriot163 Days
7. Kia Spectra156 Days
8. Chevrolet Cobalt152 Days
9. Chevrolet Colorado148 Days
10. Ford Mustang147 Days

If you've got your eye on any of the vehicles listed above, you're in luck. Dealers are pretty much desperate to move these cars off their lots so you're very likely to get a great deal.

We recommend using our car buying method to get the lowest possible price.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
