10 Cars Dealers Are Desperate to Sell

April 30, 2015

With so many vehicles available today, there's bound to be some that simply don't sell well. These slow-movers aren't necessarily bad vehicles - it may be due to bad marketing or their competitors are hard to compete against.

For those open to the possibility, these slow-selling vehicles present a buying opportunity since dealerships should be more willing to negotiate to get them off their lots.

USA Today recently took a look at 10 vehicles that are having problems selling. At the very top of the list is the Honda Insight, which on average took about 171 days to sell in 2014 -- a big difference from the industry-wide average of 71 days. Other vehicles on the slow-mover list include the Infiniti Q60, Buick Verano, and Fiat 500L. Many of these vehicles are selling at a large discount off MSRP.

If you're considering any of these slow-selling vehicles, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, RydeShopper and CarsDirect to see the lowest prices available in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best 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.
