Top 10 Best Selling Cars Last Month
As the heat waves of summer roll on, car sales seem to be wilting.
Sales gains in June were incremental, with Ford up 13.3%, GM up 10.7%, Toyota up 6.8% and Honda only up 6.2%.
Yet some managed to outperform, with beleaguered Chrysler seeing a 35% sales boost in year-over-year sales (though it was just exiting bankruptcy this time last year, so comparisons are misleading.) Korean automaker Hyundai also was up 35%.
Of note, the Nissan Altima dropped off June's top 10, while the Honda CR-V made it (the first crossover represented on the top 10 since April.)

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar 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.
