Last week, I told you all about the best selling cars of 2013 -- This week, we're talking about the 10 cars that weren't as popular -- the 10 worst selling cars of 2013.

According to AutoBlog, the worst selling cars of 2013 included the Cadillac Escalade EXT, Subaru Tribeca, Jaguar XK, and Nissan GT-R. However, the number one worst selling car of 2013 was the Acura ZDX, which sold only 361 units all year long. According to AutoBlog, this particular vehicle had the lowest annual sales they've seen in the past three years.

What's the potential upside to this list? Well, if any of these vehicles listed catch your eye chances are good you may be able to get a great deal. Remember to use TrueCar to compare real prices where you live.

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.
