List of Cars You Shouldn't Buy Right Now

As a new car shopper, sometimes it can get really frustrating trying to find a good deal on a popular vehicle.

Everyone seems to want the same vehicles and dealers are low on inventory for many models - especially ones that are newly redesigned or were introduced this year.

Some are even getting away with charging over MSRP because the demand is so high.

In cases like this, it's best to wait a few months in hopes of production catching up with demand - or you may want to consider an alternative model, one that doesn't suffer from supply/demand contraints.

Doing so can save you several thousand dollars.

Here are the most in-demand vehicles right now. It's going to be very difficult to get a great deal on these models, so if you really want one right now - expect to pay a big premium.

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.
