Best & Worst Cars to Negotiate

July 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 selling car in June was a three-way tie between the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover, 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, and 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250, all only taking 8 days to sell.

On the flip-side, the slowest moving cars were dominated by BMW in June. The 2014 BMW M6 coupe was the slowest selling vehicle in June, taking a whopping 285 days to move off dealer lots, followed by the 2014 BMW 640i xDrive coupe (248 days) and 2014 BMW M6 convertible (218 days).

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.

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