The Most Difficult Cars to Negotiate
May 10, 2012
Each month, Cars.com compiles a list of the fastest selling new vehicles during the last month. These are cars that barely have time to get unloaded from the delivery trucks before they're sold.
Dealers love these cars because they don't have to negotiate much to sell them. Unfortunately for buyers, if you're interested in one these, you have to be realistic and accept the fact that you're not likely to get a great deal. Waiting a few months will likely help, but some of these vehicles have been hot sellers for a long time.
My advice to prudent car shoppers is to consider at least 2 or 3 different models that you'll be happy with, and buy the one that offers you the best deal.
Here are the models that are hardest to find and negotiate right now, along with the average number of days it takes to sell them.

|2013 BMW X3||4 days|
|2013 BMW X5|| 4 days|
|2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In|| 5 days|
|2013 Hyundai Sonata|| 5 days|
|2013 Hyundai Elantra|| 6 days|
|2013 Infiniti JX|| 6 days|
