"Leftover" Vehicles from 2012 Can Be Big Bargains

Bloomberg via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- This is a great time to shop for a new car because several 2012 models have been redesigned for 2013, so dealers are trying to get rid of the old models fast --and maybe cheap. This insight comes from Philip Reed, Consumer advice editor for auto website

According to Reed, the key to scoring a great deal on auto "leftovers" is that you have to be the sort of person who doesn't care if the body style of your car is outdated. If that's you, read the list below, because this happens every year with a handful of vehicles.

"This year there is a wide range of vehicles that will soon be updated significantly," said Reed, "from sedans, to sports cars to SUVs, and many of them rank among the best-selling models in America." Some of these vehicles will be totally redesigned, others merely "refreshed," and a few will be eliminated.

Here is the full list of vehicles that may have big bargains:

  • 2012 Chevrolet Impala
  • 2012 Chevrolet Malibu
  • 2012 Chevrolet Traverse
  • 2012 Ford Escape
  • 2012 Ford Fusion
  • 2012 Ford Mustang
  • 2012 GMC Acadia
  • 2012 Honda Accord
  • 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • 2012 Lexus ES 350
  • 2012 Nissan Altima
  • 2012 Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2012 Toyota Avalon
