Top 10 Best-Selling Cars Last Month

April 7, 2011

Best Selling CarsCar shoppers were out in storm last month, buying new vehicles by the bucketful.

While all automakers generally did well, Hyundai (up 32%), Ford (up 28.2%) and Nissan (up 26.9%) did exceptionally well.

Ford outsold all four brands at GM to become the best-selling automaker in the United States in March.

Ford has three vehicles in the top 10 for March, the most of any automaker. Toyota was the only major automaker with losses compared with March 2010 (down 9.2%).

Pickup trucks usually top the list, but the Honda Accord managed to wrestle the #2 spot from the Chevrolet Silverado, a perennial favorite.

The Camry, typically the best-selling midsize sedan, fell behind both the Accord and the Nissan Altima in March.

  1. Ford F-Series   (53,272)
  2. Honda Accord  (33,616)
  3. Chevy Silverado  (32,555)
  4. Nissan Altima(32,289)
  5. Toyota Camry  (31,464)
  6. Honda Civic  (31,213)
  7. Toyota Corolla  (30,234)
  8. Ford Fusion  (27,566)
  9. Ford Escape  (23,975)
  10. Hyundai Sonata  (22,894)

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
