Best Deals on Used AWD Vehicles

December 5, 2013

Winter is upon us, and when you're driving around on slippery ground, having an all wheel drive (AWD) vehicle can be a great thing. If you've been considering purchasing an AWD vehicle, you're in luck -- Consumer Reports recently released a list of what they consider the top deals right now on used AWD cars and SUVs.

These 2010-2012 model year vehicles range in savings from 16% to as high as 49% lower than the vehicle's original MSRP when brand new. On the list are the likes of the 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander, 2011 Mercury Milan, and 2012 Toyota Matrix.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar 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.
