15 Vehicles Being Discontinued

August 10, 2017

As the 2017 model year is coming to a close, auto manufacturers are burdened with the tough task of deciding which vehicles will continue into 2018 and which they will discontinue.

Forbes recently released a list of the 15 vehicles that will no longer be around next year. The good news for car buyers is that because these vehicles will be discontinued, dealerships are anxious to move them, meaning some great deals can be had right now. Vehicles on the to-be-discontinued list include the Buick Verano, Chrysler 200, and Volkswagen Touareg.

If you're interested in any of these discontinued vehicles, act now for the best selection. And for even more savings, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see some of the lowest prices 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.
