New Cars You Should Wait to Buy

Using TrueCar's database of average prices paid on new vehicles, I compiled a list of cars you should avoid buying right now due to low supply / high demand (or in some cases other factors).

For many of these vehicles, if you wait a few months, you might save upwards of $2,000 or even more, especially now that manufacturers have had to cut back production due to supply issues. I've seen vehicles drop in price by up to $5,000 after initial demand dies down.

Not all of these vehicles will drop in price, but the higher production models are more likely to drop once supply catches up. Also, some of these vehicles may be in low supply longer than just a few months.
