High Demand for 2010 Ford Taurus Means Buyers Should Wait

2010 Ford TaurusFord's newly released 2010 Taurus has given the company an unexpected surprise this year: Lots of sales.

For consumers interested in saving money, this will probably mean having to wait a while before making that purchase.

At a time when Ford's overall sales have decreased by 23.8 percent, demand for the new Taurus came out at 50 percent higher than predicted.

Ford hoped to sell around 1,100 of the vehicles during its first month, but actually pulled off selling 2,300 - over twice what was expected.

Even with such a promising start, it's still too early to tell how well the 2010's sales will fare in the coming months.

One thing is certain: if you plan on buying the new Ford Taurus, now is not the best time to do so. As a newly redesigned model that has just been released, its popularity - and price - is currently at its peak.

Check again in about six months when the supply has a chance to catch up to demand; you'll probably encounter much better prices then.






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
