Prices are Crashing on These Five Cars


If you bought a Ford Flex in July, you spent more than a grand over than you would have if you'd waited a month.  A Range Rover Sport? Same problem. 

The prices of most cars are trending up over time, but the prices of these are on the way down.  With the help of our pricing partners at TrueCar.com, we've identified the five cars seeing the sharpest price drops this summer...and some of them have further to fall.

2010 Mercedes-Benz R-Class

It's almost not fair to put the R-Class on this list.  Mercedes' unsual executive minivan is such a low-volume car these days, the automaker barely imports enough to meet slow demand.  But there are those who want to transport seven in luxury, and the R-Class does that like nothing else.  Still, even by Mercedes' low expectations, sales are doing poorly.  With word now out about the new, refreshed 2011 Mercedes-Benz R-Class, the average 2010 R-Class sold for $1,480 less in August than it did in July.

The Ford Flex may be destined to go down as one of those good ideas that never really caught on with the buying public.  Ford just has too many crossovers -- the Flex competes with the Edge and the new Explorer in Ford showrooms -- for this quirky one to shine.  But it's great, with minivan practicality, unique looks, and an available EcoBoost engine.  Ford product planners have hinted that the Flex may drop from the lineup in a year or two, and sales, sadly, are making that look like the right move.  The Flex sold for an average of $1,171 less last month than the month before -- and with new versions of both the Edge and the Explorer reaching showrooms seeon, prices may not have stopped falling.

  1. "The prices of most cars are trending up over time..." Yes, no doubt, my 2008 is now worth twice as much as when I bought it new :-)
    But seriously, I'm going to miss Flex :-(

    Bad stuff?

  2. Price drop huh? There is no inventory here in North America so supply & demand basic principles would dictate otherwise.
