Best and Worst Cars to Negotiate Right Now

Best Cars to NegotiateWith the New Year, plenty of new models are hitting the streets, and they’re selling fast.

Eleven of the top 21 fastest-selling cars last month were either significantly redesigned or brand-new models, which means it might be harder to find the exact model you’re looking for.

The average number of days it took to sell a new 2011 or 2012 was 40 days in January, up slightly from December’s 35 days.

The longer it takes to sell a car, the better it is for negotiation.

The poor performers in January were largely convertibles and high-performance cars that don’t sell well during frigid winter months.

Of course, that also means it's the perfect time to shop for these cars before the weather turns, especially if you have a garage.
