Best and Worst Cars to Negotiate in January
January 10, 2013
The less time a car is parked on a dealer's lo,t the more popular it is, meaning you as the consumer will have less wiggle room when it comes to negotiating.
For instance, according to Cars.com
, the newly-redesigned 2013 Toyota Avalon is flying off dealer lots, taking only an average of eight days to sell. While on the flipside, the 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco is currently sticking around for the long haul, taking 135 days on average 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.
By using a tool like the CarWoo Deal Finder
, you can find local dealers who are most willing to negotiate on these vehicles.
