The microchip shortage continues to impact new and used car sales as production interruptions lower car supply and force dealers to maintain tight inventory levels. Despite reduced inventory and heightened demand for both new and used cars overall, some vehicles defy this trend and languish on dealer lots. These slow-selling cars can present savings opportunities for car buyers, even in the current market.

Analyzing over one million new and used cars sold in July 2021 to determine the fastest-selling new and used cars, iSeeCars.com found that overall, the average new car takes 35 days to sell and the average used car takes 35.4 days to sell. New cars are selling nearly a week faster than in June, when the average was 41.7 days, and used cars are selling slightly slower compared to 34.5 days averaged over the same period.

What does this mean for car shoppers? The list of slowest-selling vehicles includes vehicles across many vehicle types and price points, showing that there is likely a slow seller to meet any consumer preference and budget. Extended time on dealer lots indicates that supply is higher than demand, which could be because pricing is too high or the car isn’t as popular as its competition. Knowing how long vehicles remain on dealer lots can present negotiation opportunities for consumers as dealers likely want to sell these vehicles. Each iSeeCars.com vehicle listing includes a car’s days on market and if the price has already been reduced, to provide shoppers with the information needed to help them make the smartest purchase decision.
