New Cars You Should Wait to Buy

August 1, 2019

Using TrueCar's database of average prices paid on new vehicles, I compiled a list of cars you should avoid buying right now due to high demand / low supply (or in some cases other factors).

For many of these vehicles, if you wait just a few months, you could save upwards of $2,000 or even more. I've seen vehicles drop in price by $5,000 after the initial demand dies down.

Not all of these vehicles will drop in price, but the higher production models are more likely to drop once supply catches up. Also, some of these vehicles may be in high demand longer than just a few months.
