Best and Worst Cars to Negotiate Right Now

June 16, 2011

May was not kind to car sales, as it marked the first decline in the past eight months.

The sales decline was largely due to inventory shortages, high gas prices, and few incentives.

It took longer for cars to move off lots, with the average number of days rising from 48 in April to 54 in May.

Nonetheless, May was favorable to the 2012 Hyundai Elantra. The redesigned car is now the fastest-selling model, taking just three days to sell.

The 2011 Chrysler Sebring 200 also did well in May, taking only 19 days to sell.

The quicker a car sells, the less likely you'll be able to negotiate a great deal. Here are the best and worst cars to negotiate right now.

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.
