Discontinued Cars Still for Sale as New

Let’s say you’ve been researching a new car and, guess what, it’s been discontinued, dropped or replaced. If that model happens to be one of the eight models Automobile magazine lists as “Vehicles You Probably Didn't Know You Could Still Buy New,” you may still have a chance of acquiring one.
Automobile lists models that were discontinued as long ago as 2007, but untouched leftovers are still being sold in 2010. We searched for how many examples of these vehicles are listed in Cars.com’s national new-car inventory:
We wouldn’t be surprised if more of these vehicles are available new but not listed in our inventory, so you still may have a chance to find them sitting in a dark corner of the dealership lot. Considerable incentives could still be attached to these cars, too. For example, the TrailBlazer currently has $3,500 cash back or financing as low as zero percent for up to 72 months.

There is a reason these cars are still sitting on the lot.....


I did some snooping and found a "new" 2004 Trailblazer....wow.


Sometimes automakers will allow dealers to sell dealer or program cars as new as long as they comply with a "new car" mileage maximum. for Mitsubishi this is something like 7,500 miles.


The local Chevrolet dealer is still trying to unload two 2008 Trailblazers. Out of curiosity I called the dealer and they said both are new with less than 25 miles on each. They said if they don't sell by end of Summer they'll sell them to a fleet operation.


I hope the rental companies are reading this.


Zox, I'm surpised they weren't already dumped into rental fleets, that's where GM finds most of their customers.


Maybe they're waiting for Obama to tell them what to do with the leftover GM vehicles. They're in the hands of the government now.
