For those of you that elected to skip the pandemonium and pepper spray of Black Friday (I don't blame you), there's good news: December has 7 of the top 10 days to buy a car this year, meaning that there is still time to get a great deal on a new car.

According to a new report from TrueCar.com, consumers can expect to enjoy average savings of 8.9% to 9.3% off of MSRP on December 10, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31.

"December is going to be the best month of 2011 to buy a car with manufacturers offering attractive year-end incentives and dealers motivated to move inventory to get to their sales objectives," said Jesse Toprak, VP of Industry Trends and Insights for TrueCar.com.

"It's also a good month to buy a luxury vehicle or large truck/SUV. But car buyers should remember to do their research before buying a car by locking-in an already negotiated price, which can result in significant savings and in a pleasant buying experience at the dealership."

> In Pictures: 20 Great December Deals

If all you want for Christmas is a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado, you are in luck. On average, the popular truck is projected to sell at 31.7% below MSRP at $15,194 on these days, which is a savings of $7,036. Otherwise, the Silverado will be selling at around 22.8% under MSRP.

Other great deals can be had on the 2011 Chrysler 200 (projected to sell at 23.7% under MSRP on these days and currently selling at a 11.5% discount), 2011 Nissan Armada (21.8% and 17.3%) and 2011 BMW 335 (16.7% and 13.3%).

These are just a few examples of the new car deals that can be had this month. Take a look at our top 20 picks and if you find one that suits your needs, head over to our AOL Autos Best Deals page, where you can find the Guaranteed Best Price on a new car in your area, print off your Price Guarantee Certificate and head to the dealer to buy for that price with no hassle or obligations.

Chevrolet Suburban Chrysler 200 Dodge Challenger Mercedes-Benz E-Class Dodge Ram 1500

This Month's Editor's Pick: 2011 BMW 335d

The BMW 335d offers something for everyone and now is a great time to take advantage of America's wariness of diesel, as weak demand translates to lower prices.

While diesel doesn't enjoy the best reputation here in the U.S., its negative characterization is not really applicable anymore, as diesel engines have evolved to become very clean and efficient. The 335d s no exception. Powered by a 3.0-liter I6 diesel engine, the 335d boasts 265-hp and 425 lb-ft of torque while producing 23 mpg City and 36 mpg Hwy. In addition to its fantastic driving characteristics, the 335d hosts a variety of luxury amenities and safety features.

The 335d is projected to sell at 16.7% on average if purchased on one of the 7 days listed above. Consumers can still expect significant savings on all other days this December, as well.

      These car lots needs to drop their high prices cars 75% then they'll still be making a huge profit. They want to get rich off of every car they sell, LET THEM GO BANKRUPT AND THEY DROP THEIR HIGH PRICES.....

        @lpi2007
        lpi2007, I've seen some really stupid statements about the car business, but yours is right up at the top of stupid. Dealers do not set the costs they have to buy a car from the factory for, the factorys set those costs based on what it has pay for all those components that go into the car. They buy most of the parts from outside vendors that have to buy material from somewhere. Then there is the labor, lots of labor. How are those people that make the parts and assemble the cars paid? A great many of these labors whether on the final assembly line or at a component manufacturer are paid based on UNION contracts, or are paid a close to union wages if not in a union to be competitve. Let's take a $20,000 compact car. The mark up between what the dealer pays the factory for the car and the MSRP is less then $2000, maybe even less the $1500. Ipi2007 thinks this car should sell on a new car lot of $5000, there is more then $5000 in total labor and benefit costs in this $20000 compact car, Ipi2007 is an idiot. Ipi2007 appears to think new car dealers are just another part of the factory that produces cars, braindead thought. New car dealers are all franchised run by mostly indenpendent business men/women or separate corporations such as Carmax or Penske, etc. FYI don't believe anything written by AOL on when to buy a car or how to buy a car. Buy it when you are ready, the car you saw a the dealer today and you told the salesperson I'll be back to buy it, doesn't work. The car will be gone more then likely when you are ready. I've been in the car business for nearly 25 years I've seen it all. Like politicans how do you know when a buyer is liar...you know the answer. Carguy516 is right when will online sources tell me how much a major appliance costs the retailer? Denis is right your trade doesn't get better with age. And please don't lie to us about what another dealer told you your trade is worth by inflating the amount by a couple of 'K', we've been around that block.

          susafe5ret says "you are full of CRAPPPPPPP" Sus what do you do for a living? Well I've been in the car biz since 1987 and a manager at a dealer for nearly 12 years. Brandxrallyeteam is correct. Maybe you need a plunger for your plumbing problem.

      On used cars, buyers better beware, and not trust their ads. In 2006 I bought my daughter a new Chevy Cobalt. She wanted a basic car, no elecronics beyond a CD player, automatic transmission, and a spoiler on the trunk, yellow. I got it as she wanted it for $12000. TTL. Last year she took it to a local dealer in Beaumont, TX, and traded it in on a 2008 Chrysler 300 ( I was a little upset - the car was paid in cash, now she has payments ). Imagine how amused we were to see her old car advertised as a COBALT SS, with a sticker price to match it. I would not want to be the person who bought that SS and found out it was not as advertised. Of course, maybe it could be a good thing, especially if the settlement over false advertising included the car for nothing???

        Can't blame you on being upset on the trade in. She should have kept the Chevy. Our family bought our daughter 1/2 (daughter paid the other 1/2) of a new Yellow '07 Cobalt as a med school grad present. Still has it, drives great, no problem at all. Knowing my daugher, she will keep it another 7-10 years.

        Always check the VIN #...its located on the door plate and visable through the windshield on the drivers side down on the dash board...the ref. that online to see if it really is what it says...and always have the dealer provide you with a car fax...then run your own....A dealer wouldn't show you a fake car fax ....Would he???? LOL.....yes he would.....Don't assume salesmen know what they are talking about either, unless your salesman has won or competed in a few walk-around contest most of them don't know what the wheel base of a car is or why anyone would want to know it....and never get a car salesman to sell you a pickup or god forbid a 5th wheel...only talk to a truck store when buying a truck.....Anyone who has made this error will likely back me up

      Before buying a car or a truck from a foreign company, think about this: Those foreign car companies that are building plants here in the USA pay American workers half of what workers from American car companies make. That's half the money to spend and half the tax revenue collected from wages! Also all the profits from these plants go right back to a foreign country except what goes into our politicians pockets. NOW TELL ME THIS IS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY!!!!! No other country would allow foreign companies to take over their auto industry. That is exactly what is happening to the USA!!

        I'm sorry, but you are misiformed, Mike. That wouldn't be so bad, but you are telling it like it is true, when it is simply wrong.

      Personally, I think most of you have mush for brains. Dralers will stroke you on a trade or new car purchase every chance they get. Traded an 06 GTO in 08 ,two days later it was on thier lot for four thou more than I got for it. Should have kept it , it would have been mine now and they still are on lots or internet for what I got for it or more. Stay away from Boucher Chevrolet in Racine, WI. They are liars and will swindle anyone they can. They can get screwed for all I care, and all of them are the same. DONT get sucked in by lies or misleading advertisement.

      Wow, that's a big savings on a car! Hell yeah! I love when deal sites offer coupons for big ticket items like cars or trips. Groupon does it sometimes, but a site that offers huge discounts off trips and hotel rooms is BigTip. I actually got a coupon for a hotel in Hawaii for 50 bucks, and in the end it saved me almost 200 all in all. Definitely check out

      No car is worth going into debt for!! A nice, family car is all I need, but large enough to fit 4 tall people in! Any ideas? I can't afford a 25 K car.

      I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from: ( HTtp://tinyurl.com/AuctionDeals )
