Best & Worst Cars to Negotiate

December 11, 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 vehicles in November were the 2015 Ford Mustang coupe, 2015 Porsche Macan, and 2015 Subaru WRX, all taking only 10 days to sell. This is the second month in a row for the Mustang to be in the top spot.

On the flip-side, the car taking the longest to sell in November was the 2015 Audi TTS coupe, which hung out on dealer lots for an average of 165 days. Also not selling very quickly were the 2015 Jaguar XK coupe, taking 147 days to sell, and the 2015 Cadillac CTS coupe, selling in 132 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.
