Terrible August Sales Could Mean More Car Bargains

As summer comes to a close, there's one thing that's still heating up - the car buyer's market.

With the release of the poor August sales figures, it's clear that bargains should abound for car buyers.

Sales were down for nearly all car manufacturers, resulting in the worst August sales in over 28 years - though there were a few exceptions.

For example, there is a general surge in SUV sales as shoppers headed into the holiday weekend. This comes at a time when several fuel-efficient cars, such as the 2011 Ford Fiesta, are coming to market.

Hyundai continues to pick up market share and Audi had its best August ever. Subaru sales are normally strong, but this month they showed a decline - except for the Outback.

Although sales are not doing well, most car manufacturers have cut back on production enough that they don't feel the need to increase incentives spending. This could change if we see a couple of more months of poor sales.
