Best & Worst Cars to Negotiate

March 19, 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 vehicles last month were the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover and 2015 Subaru Outback, both only taking 11 days to sell. Also at the top of the list is the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, only staying on dealer lots for 12 days.

On the flip-side, the car taking the longest to sell in February was the 2015 Kia K900, which hung out on dealer lots for an average of 159 days. Also not selling very quickly were the 2015 BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe, taking 146 days to sell, and the 2015 BMW M6 convertible, selling in 142 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.
