Now let's take a look at the worst selling cars for 2011. AutoBlog compiled the list and excluded exotic cars and vehicles worth more than $100,000 - since they would skew the results.

Turns out the Acura RL was the worst selling vehicle of 2011. The Hyundai Azera finished 2nd worst, but with a redesign coming this year, we expect it won't make the list again in 2012.

Top 10 Worst-Selling Cars of 2011

  1. Acura RL (1,096)

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.

New York Tri-State Residents - Important:

There is a new car leasing service called Carvoy, available to NY tri-state area residents, which I recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with car dealerships. Carvoy provides pre-negotiated lease deals, calculated with taxes and all fees incuded so you know exactly what it will cost. Here is my list of Best Carvoy deals, updated each month.
