Few Pontiacs Remain, But No Great Deals
Among the fastest selling models include the Pontiac G8, the Solstice, and Coupe. Of the G8 GXP, there are only 16 cars left to be sold nationwide. Others aren't far behind. No more than 23 SCCA Convertibles, 139 base model Coupes, and 160 Coupe GXPs remain.
Customers may have better luck getting their hands on some of the slightly less popular models, but even those numbers are depleting rapidly: there are just 400 Torrent SUVs and 1,500 G5s left now for consumers to buy.
Unfortunately for buyers, there's little indication that the Pontiac discontinuation will mean amazing last-minute deals on the brand's models. Unlike the Oldsmobile, which GM retired in 1992, the last Pontiacs seem to be clearing nicely enough without much need for incentives. Unless circumstances change as the year closes, there is little reason for buyers to expect great savings on the brand.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and Ryde Shopper 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.
