Most Popular New Cars Right Now

October 5, 2017

New car sales continued to do well last month, as areas hit by hurricanes created a need to replace flooded vehicles.

Pickup trucks took back the top 3 spots, pushing the Toyota RAV4 into 4th place. The Nissan Rogue moved up the most spots last month, coming in as the 5th most-popular vehicle. The Ford F-Series was #1 as usual, selling a whopping 82,302 units.

If you're considering purchasing any of these popular vehicles, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the best deals being offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
