The Fastest and Slowest Selling Cars on the Market

Grand Cherokee The Movers and Losers list from Cars.com reports the average number of days it takes to sell models from the day they arrive on the lot until the final paperwork is signed by a buyer.

The quicker a car moves off the lot, the less negotiating room you have with the dealer. Slow moving cars tend to sell at a much deeper discount.

This month's biggest mover: the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The redesigned Grand Cherokee is selling quickly, with just nine days on lots (a positive sign that Chrysler is getting back on track.)

The Ford Fiesta also sold quickly, but more so in hatchback configurations. The new Buick Regal just made the list, selling in just over two weeks.

The average number of days it took to sell a new 2010 or 2011 ticked up one day from 55 in June to 56 in July.

May's average was 50 days.

On the Losers list, the slow-selling Cadillac CTS SportWagon and the soon-to-be-deceased Mercury Milan Hybrid.

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.
