The 8 Best Cars That Nobody Buys
There are always some fantastic cars that are overlooked, mainly because consumers aren't aware of them. It's hard to keep up with all the latest models. That's why Automobile Magazine wrote an article this week titled "The Best Cars That Nobody Buys".
The editors of the magazine chose 8 vehicles that are not selling well, despite being awesome. The good news for you is that these vehicles are easier to negotiate due to their low demand. Take a look at the list, and be sure to put these vehicles on your consideration list as you shop for your new vehicle.
|Vehicle||Monthly Sales||Why It's not Selling Well|
|Ford Flex||2,750||Slightly more expensive than the competition, styling is unusual.|
|Buick Regal||2,500||Buick is saddled with the stigma that it's only for retirees.|
|Volvo S60||2,075||The S60 isn't really seen as a sports sedan by purists. Lacks the driveway cachet of a Lexus or Mercedes emblem.|
|Hyundai Genesis Sedan||1,750||Hyundai is not seen as a luxury brand by many shoppers|
|Mazda Mazda5||1,150||Isn't as spacious as other minivans, although it does offer a lot of room for its size.|
|Mazda MX-5 Miata||571||Has not changed much over the past 23 years, but considered to be one of the funnest cars to drive.|
|Suzuki Kizashi||503||Suzuki only has 250 showrooms scattered across the country, many car shoppers are simply not aware of this vehicle.|
|Porsche Cayman||67||It's overshadowed by the iconomic Porsche 911. Plus, the newly redesigned version will debut in 2013.|
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. 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 / 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.
