Cars with Cramped Rear Seats
One great thing about large automotive sites like Cars.com is that they get to see and test every model on the market and can highlight vehicles to avoid.
This week, they alerted readers to 7 vehicles that have cramped rear legroom. You may not know it by reading the manufacturer specs because there is no standard way to measure rear legroom.
In their tests, Cars.com found that some cars simply have cramped rear seats compared to their competition. Here are the 7 vehicles Cars.com recommends you avoid if rear legroom is an issue:
- 2013 Chevrolet Malibu
- 2012 Ford Fiesta
- 2012 Hyundai Tucson
- 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
- Lexus IS sedan
- Mazda Mazda3
- Toyota FJ Cruiser
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show 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.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
