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.

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).
