10 Biggest Used Car Price Drops

As with everything that's for sale, prices can fluctuate. And when it comes to used cars, those prices can fluctuate by a great deal.

According to Cars.com, BMW had a number of vehicles with big price drops in January, including the BMW 740i with the largest price drop last month of 5.9%, as well as the BMW 750i and 528i (both with 4% price drops) and BMW 535i (-2.8%).

On the flip side, the GMC Savana 2500 experienced the largest price increase in January, with used car prices raising 3.9%. Other big used car price increasers included the Nissan Murano (+2.9%), Lincoln MKT (+2.1%), and Hyundai Genesis (+1.5%).

If you're currently shopping for a car, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best prices being offered in your local area.

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
