Best and Worst Cars to Negotiate a Good Deal
The only three cars on the list were all luxury models.
The fastest-selling non-luxury car was the Chevy Cruze, sitting on lots for only 16 days before being sold.
The faster a car sells, the less negotiating room you have on the price. Dealers can't keep the cars on the lot, so why would they sell it at a low price?
However brisk some sales of new models were, the lingering 2010s have slowed the average time it takes to sell a new car to 83 days.
That's up from 69 days in October and is the slowest of the year.
