Now let's take a look at the worst selling cars for 2011. AutoBlog compiled the list and excluded exotic cars and vehicles worth more than $100,000 - since they would skew the results.

Turns out the Acura RL was the worst selling vehicle of 2011. The Hyundai Azera finished 2nd worst, but with a redesign coming this year, we expect it won't make the list again in 2012.

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.
