Vehicles with the Biggest Discounts

August 2, 2012

Which vehicles are currently offering the biggest discounts? That's what Consumer Reports set out to answer in their latest analysis of the market.

With summer about to end and new models being released, the deals are getting better - especially on leftover models. Conumer Reports found that some new models are being discounted by as much as 20% off MSRP.

Using the CarWoo Deal Finder, you should be able to negotiate even better deals. Here is the full list:

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.
