24 Models Being Discontinued
November 30, 2017As the 2017 model year is coming to a close, auto manufacturers are burdened with the tough task of deciding which vehicles will continue into 2018 and which they will discontinue.
There are 24 models that will be discontinued this year. The good news for car buyers is that because these vehicles will be discontinued, dealerships are anxious to move them, meaning some great deals can be had right now. Models on the to-be-discontinued list include the Ford C-Max, Honda Accord Coupe, and Volkswagen Touareg.
If you're interested in any of these discontinued vehicles, act now for the best selection. And for even more savings, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see some of the lowest prices being offered in your area.

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).
