Consumers have spoken, and the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Ford Fusion - in that order - are the most popular cars in the US right now.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Honda Accord ranks #1 with 33,538 units sold in April 2013. Following very closely behind is the Toyota Camry with 31,710 sales, and the Ford Fusion with 26,722 sold in April.

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.
