June 9, 2011

There was a big drop in car sales last month, especially with Japanese models.

Toyota was hit the hardest, with a huge 28% drop from a year ago. Their Lexus division was down 40%!

Honda sales dropped 16% while Nissan lost 9%.

Subaru was down 15.3% after posting months of strong sales.

Ford and GM fared better, seeing sales drop only 0.1% and 1.2% respectively.

Ford's new 2012 Focus was up 31.7% - to 22,303 units, and Chevy's Cruze beat Focus with 22,711 units sold.

Chrysler was in positive territory, with sales increasing 10% thanks to the new Chrysler 200 sedan, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Dodge Durango SUVs.

Chrysler rolled past Toyota and Honda to become the #3 most popular automaker in the U.S. behind GM and Ford.

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.
