10 New Cars With Negotiation Potential
October 8, 2015
Although car manufacturers don't like to admit it, not every new vehicle is a winner. For whatever reason, car buyers give certain cars and trucks the cold shoulder and leave them sitting on dealers lots for a long time.
However, this situation can be a potential gold mine for car shoppers. Dealers want to move these hard-to-sell vehicles and they are more open to negotiation, giving consumers the potential for a great deal.
Forbes recently released a list of the 10 biggest "new car sales losers" for 2015, detailing vehicles that are accumulating on dealer lots. Cars on the list include the Toyota Prius Plug-In, Volkswagen CC, Chrysler Town & Country, and Kia Cadenza. The full list is below.
And if you're considering purchasing any of these slow-to-move vehicles, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices being offered in your area.
|Rank||Vehicle||% Sales Down||Current Incentive|
|1||Toyota Prius Plug-In||66.8%||$2,500 federal tax credit|
|2||Volkswagen CC||45.5%||0.9% financing for 72 months|
|3||Dodge Grand Caravan||42.2%||$2,000|
|4||Chrysler Town & Country||44.6%||$2,500|
|5||Audi A4 Allroad||41.2%||$1,500|
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, 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.
