Top 10 Best Selling Cars Last Month
Sales gains in June were incremental, with Ford up 13.3%, GM up 10.7%, Toyota up 6.8% and Honda only up 6.2%.
Yet some managed to outperform, with beleaguered Chrysler seeing a 35% sales boost in year-over-year sales (though it was just exiting bankruptcy this time last year, so comparisons are misleading.) Korean automaker Hyundai also was up 35%.
Of note, the Nissan Altima dropped off June's top 10, while the Honda CR-V made it (the first crossover represented on the top 10 since April.)

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe 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 NetworkSelect 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 / CarsDirectTrueCar, 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.
