The Best Overall Vehicle in Each Category

March 1, 2012

Consumer Reports has selected their Top Picks of the best all-around models in ten different categories for 2012. These models were selected based on their overall reliability, road test scores, and safety.

Consumer Reports tested more than 275 vehicles and compiled vehicle reliability reports of 1.3 million subscribers from their most recent survey.

Toyota earned half of the top 10 spots. The last time one manufacturer took so many top spots was when Honda achieved the feat back in 2003. Ironically, Honda didn't even have one winner this year, which goes to show how far they've fallen.

Here are the top picks for 2012:

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.
