Top 12 Cars to Avoid Buying Right Now

Audi Q5Forbes Magazine recently conducted a study to determine which cars are the most difficult to buy right now due to limited supply.

They compiled inventory data from June and July, averaged it out, and called dealerships to ask how long cars typically stay on their lots before being sold.

Suprisingly, the hardest vehicle to buy right now is an Audi Q5. Audi only has about a 2 weeks supply of the Q5 at current sales figures and the typical dealer sells a Q5 only 4 days after it hits the showroom.

The following list is made up of vehicles you should avoid buying right now. You won't get a good deal since supply and demand is not on your side. Our advice is to wait several months until supply catches up with demand.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
