January 6, 2011

Best Selling CarsCar sales made a strong rebound in 2010, with almost all car manufacturers seeing a decent increase in sales.

Of the major car companies, Toyota was the only one that saw its sales decrease - mainly attributed to its recall fiasco which caused consumers to question the safety of the brand.

GM ended the year as the number one seller of vehicles in the US.

Ford, having more vehicles than Toyota, reclaimed its No. 2 sales spot.

The car brand that saw the highest increase in sales was Buick - up 52%, while Smart sales fell the furthest with a 60% decline.

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.
