The Best No-Haggle Prices on 2012 Models

Using the TrueCar Pricing Tool, I did a search for the largest discounts currently being offered on 2012 models.

There are over 5,000 dealerships providing pre-negotiated prices through TrueCar, oftentimes offering rock-bottom prices (although you should still try to negotiate lower).

Some dealers are actually offering vehicles for below cost, hoping to make up the revenue by selling add-ons such as extended warranties. Other dealers, feeling threatened, are trying to shut down TrueCar through legislation that prohibits them from doing business in their State.

This is actually a good sign for buyers. It shows that TrueCar does provide deals that are eating away dealer profits.

Here are the largest discounts I was able to find with a quick search in Southern California:

2012 Mitsubishi Galant$3,441 15%
2012 Toyota Tundra 2WD$3,802 15%
2012 Chevrolet Malibu$3,280 14%

2012 Ford Focus$2,457 13%
2012 Chevrolet Impala$3,436 13%
2012 Nissan Altima$2,692 13%
2012 Ford Expedition$4,855 13%
2012 Nissan Sentra$2,219 13%

2012 Ford Flex$3,725 12%

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.
