10 Cars Dealers Are Desperate to Sell

With so many vehicles available today, there's bound to be some that simply don't sell well. These slow-movers aren't necessarily bad vehicles - it may be due to bad marketing or their competitors are hard to compete against.

For those open to the possibility, these slow-selling vehicles present a buying opportunity since dealerships should be more willing to negotiate to get them off their lots.

USA Today recently took a look at 10 vehicles that are having problems selling. At the very top of the list is the Honda Insight, which on average took about 171 days to sell in 2014 -- a big difference from the industry-wide average of 71 days. Other vehicles on the slow-mover list include the Infiniti Q60, Buick Verano, and Fiat 500L. Many of these vehicles are selling at a large discount off MSRP.

If you're considering any of these slow-selling vehicles, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the lowest prices available in your 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

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.
