The Most Difficult Cars to Negotiate
Dealers love these cars because they don't have to negotiate much to sell them. Unfortunately for buyers, if you're interested in one of these, you have to be realistic and accept the fact that you're not likely to get a great deal. Waiting a few months will likely help, but some of these vehicles have been hot sellers for a long time.
My advice to prudent car shoppers is to consider at least 2 or 3 different models that you'll be happy with, and buy the one that offers you the best deal.
Here are the models that are hardest to find and negotiate right now, along with the average number of days it takes to sell them.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe 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 NetworkSelect 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.

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, 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.
