Top 10 Best Car Deals This Month
March 22, 2012
Each month, Consumer Reports picks their list of the top 10 best new car deals nationwide.
To qualify, the vehicles have to be current year models that have met Consumer Reports' criteria to be recommended. That means they scored well in testing, had average or better reliablity, and performed well in safety tests.
All of the models this month can be negotiated 15% or more off MSRP. Most come with cash-back rebates.
