Best & Worst Cars to Negotiate

April 10, 2014

The less time a car is parked on a dealer's lot, the more popular it is - meaning you as the consumer will have less wiggle room when it comes to negotiating.

According to Cars.com, the fastest seller right now is the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover -- which is taking only 9 days to sell. The second and third fastest sellers -- the 2014 Subaru Forester and 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD -- are each only taking 11 and 12 days to sell, respectively.

On the flip-side, the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback is the slowest selling vehicle, taking a whopping 186 days to move off dealer lots. Also slow to move are two Jaguar vehicles -- the 2014 Jaguar XKR coupe taking 158 days to sell and the 2014 Jaguar F-Type S convertible taking 148 days to sell.

You should try to postpone purchasing a vehicle that's on the Hard to Negotiate list. Waiting a few months will usually save you a lot of money. If it meet your needs, consider purchasing the models on the Easiest to Negotiate list. These models offer the best opportunities for deals since they should be plentiful on dealer lots.

I recommend using tools like TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to get the best deal possible on any of these vehicles.
