The microchip shortage continues to impact new and used car sales as production interruptions lower new car and used car supply. Despite reduced inventory and high demand for new and used cars, opportunities to find a deal remain.
Analyzing over one million new and used cars sold in June 2021 to determine the fastest-selling new and used cars, iSeeCars.com found that the average new car took 41.7 days to sell and the average used car took 34.5 days to sell. These slow-moving cars present savings opportunities for car shoppers as dealers want to move these cars off the lot.
Here are the slowest-selling new and used cars in each state:

What does this mean for car shoppers? Many of the slowest-selling vehicles are lower-priced models such as compact cars and small SUVs as well as domestic luxury SUVs. Prolonged time on dealer lots indicates that supply is higher than demand, which could be because the 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 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 make the smartest purchase decision.
