Best & Worst Cars to Negotiate

February 5, 2015

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 vehicle last month was the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek, taking only eight days to sell. And once again the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover and 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport were also at the top of the fast selling list, both taking nine days to sell.

On the flip-side, the car taking the longest to sell in January was the 2015 Nissan GT-R, which hung out on dealer lots for an average of 260 days. Also not selling very quickly were the 2015 BMW M6 coupe, taking 199 days to sell, and the 2015 BMW 740Ld xDrive, selling in 193 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 you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to get the best deal possible on any of these vehicles.
