The Top 20 Best Selling Cars

June 12, 2012

The Toyota Camry is once again the most popular car in America, selling over 32,000 units last month. The Chevrolet Malibu came a close second with 31,400 units sold.

Top selling models from Toyota and Honda saw increases of over 50% compared to a year ago - when they were suffering from the aftermath of the devastating tsunami. Now that their inventory levels are back to normal, car shoppers are coming back in droves.

Check out the rest of the top 20 best-selling cars below, and be sure to use the CarWoo Deal Finder to get the best prices on these vehicles.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
