Cars With the Largest Price Drops

October 25, 2012

Transaction prices on new cars tend to fluctuate from month to month - mainly due to supply and demand issues. That being the case, it's a good idea to keep track of prices in order to time your purchase wisely.

Each month, TrueCar.com releases a list of vehicles that have seen the biggest price drops. For October, the largest price drop was over $2,200 for the 2012 Lexus IS 250C. Other vehicles with large price drops include the 2012 Infiniti FX35, BMW 6-Series, Nissan 370Z, and Nissan LEAF.

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.
