The 8 Best Cars That Nobody Buys

July 19, 2012

With nearly 300 different models to choose from, most car shoppers tend to stick with a handful of mainstream vehicles.

There are always some fantastic cars that are overlooked, mainly because consumers aren't aware of them. It's hard to keep up with all the latest models. That's why Automobile Magazine wrote an article this week titled "The Best Cars That Nobody Buys".

The editors of the magazine chose 8 vehicles that are not selling well, despite being awesome. The good news for you is that these vehicles are easier to negotiate due to their low demand. Take a look at the list, and be sure to put these vehicles on your consideration list as you shop for your new vehicle.

VehicleMonthly SalesWhy It's not Selling Well
Ford Flex2,750Slightly more expensive than the competition, styling is unusual.
Buick Regal2,500Buick is saddled with the stigma that it's only for retirees.
Volvo S602,075The S60 isn't really seen as a sports sedan by purists. Lacks the driveway cachet of a Lexus or Mercedes emblem.
Hyundai Genesis Sedan1,750Hyundai is not seen as a luxury brand by many shoppers
Mazda Mazda51,150 Isn't as spacious as other minivans, although it does offer a lot of room for its size.
Mazda MX-5 Miata571 Has not changed much over the past 23 years, but considered to be one of the funnest cars to drive.
Suzuki Kizashi503Suzuki only has 250 showrooms scattered across the country, many car shoppers are simply not aware of this vehicle.
Porsche Cayman67It's overshadowed by the iconomic Porsche 911. Plus, the newly redesigned version will debut in 2013.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise 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.
