Highlights from this month’s report include:
• The best day of the month to buy a car – discounts projected at 6.62% - falls on February 1st. However, there will be two other days in that period (January 25th and February 8th) that will also be above 6.5% and are great days to buy a car.
• If you are in the market for a Chevrolet and can find a 2009, now is the time. Five of the manufacturer’s models are in TrueCar’s list of Longest Days in Inventory - the Corvette, Impala, Aveo 5, Cobalt and HHR; three are among our greatest discount models - Cobalt, Silverado 1500 and Corvette.
• For 2010 models, Ford and Volvo each have two with the greatest discounts in their respective categories for the month: the Ford Ranger leads all pickups at 17% and Ford Edge bests all sedans at 13%; the Volvo C70 tops all convertibles at 12% while the XC70 is highest among wagons, also at 12%.
• Apparently fears of becoming an orphan owner (owner of a defunct brand) have kept consumers away from Saab, with the 2009 9-3 averaging nearly a year (358 days) in inventory.
