15 Vehicles Being Discontinued
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.
