Prices are Crashing on These Five Cars Page 2

2010 Range Rover Sport

Perhaps the most opulent SUV on the market, the extraordinary Range Rover Sport offers exceptional handling, V8 power and an interior that's on part with some of the world's best.  Yet Land Rover appears to have overestimated demand for such a thing in a recession.  The Sport sold for an average of $1,150 less in August than it did in July.

What, exactly, is the BMW X6?  It has some of the virtues of an SUV, some of the benefits of a coupe, and some sedan-like attributes.  But it lacks the best of any of the bunch, with limited space for people and things, unusual lines that don't quite come together right visually, and handling that's almost right for a BMW.  Buyers don't know what to make of it, so prices are coming down -- by $685 last month.

Some cars on this list, we'd hesitate to tell you to buy.  But this -- this is just an opportunity.  The Audi A4 remains one of the best driving cars in the entry-level luxury sedan segment, thanks to its near-perfect weight balance and the powerful grip of the Quattro all-wheel-drive system.  It also boasts one of the most luxurious interiors in its class.  Yet last month, prices came down by $548.
