11 Cars Sold Most Often in 1st Year

An interesting compilation to check out this week from Autoblog - a list of the most common models that are sold less than a year after being purchased new.

Most on the list are luxury models, such as the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes C-Class. Some reasons cited are not being satisfied with lower-trim models, but another reason why luxury models are on the list is because more of them are used as demo vehicles and sold as "used", even thought they've technically never had an owner outside of the dealership.

Nevertheless, if you're interested in one of these vehicles, it may be worth checking out 1-year old versions and see if you can snag an incredible deal.

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.
