Biggest Discounts on New Cars

August 17, 2017

TrueCar is one of my top recommendations for new car shoppers. They have a network of 14,000 car dealers that provide no-haggle prices through the service.

TrueCar compiles lots of data when it comes to real-world car prices - they know the average AND best prices people are paying on every make and model throughout the country - they granted me access to this data, I'd like to share my findings with you.

Most of the top deals right now are still on leftover models, such as the 2016 Ford Taurus, with an average discount off MSRP of 24.53%, but there are also some popular 2017 models in the top 10 list, such as the 2017 Hyundai Sonata, selling with average discounts of 24.49%.

The good news is these deals should all be readily available on TrueCar - no negotiation required.

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.
