TrueCar IDs Vehicles With Most Flexible Pricing

August 18, 2011

TrueCar rolled out its list of 2011 vehicle models with the highest and lowest Price Flex Scores. Mercedes-Benz topped most categories in the Flexible Score rankings.

The list also revealed a two-way tie between Toyota Motor Corp. and American Honda Motor Co. for least flexible pricing. Scores range from 1 to 100, with a score of 1 indicating little or no negotiating power for buyers.

A score of 100 is the highest Price Flex Score, meaning there is a big range of transaction prices for that model.
