March 7, 2013

Consumers have spoken, and the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Ford Fusion - in that order - are the best selling cars in the United States right now. 

According to our friends at Good Car Bad Car, the Toyota Camry ranks #1 thanks to 31,270 vehicles sold in February 2013. Following pretty closely is the Honda Accord with 27,999 sold, and then the Ford Fusion with 27,875 sold.

Below is the full list of the 20 cars everybody wanted to get their hands on. If you're considering one of these vehicles, I always recommend you use the free CarWoo Deal Finder to get the biggest discounts.

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.
