December 30, 2010

Car Safety picksCar safety is a very important factor when it comes to buying a car - safer cars are more desirable and generally result in higher resale values.

For 2011, there are 66 vehicles that have earned Top Safety Picks by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).

Leading the way are Kia and Hyundai, with a combined nine vehicles, and Audi and Volkswagon, which also combine for nine.

General Motors, Ford and Lincoln as well as Toyota, Lexus and Scion have 2 to 3 picks each, while Subaru is the only brand to have its entire lineup earning five stars.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
