Great Deals on Discontinued Cars
Each year, a few models get discontinued, usually due to poor sales or a change in the model lineup.
This week, Cars.com gathered a list of 7 discontinued models still available on dealer lots with large discounts, plus two that are soon to see big changes in the coming model years (the Chevrolet Impala and Jeep Liberty).
If you're a frugal car shopper, you have the opportunity to get great deals on these models. But keep in mind, discontinued models tend to have lower resale value, so only consider buying if you will keep the vehicle for at least 6 years.

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar 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.
