The 2013 New Car Buying Guide
This week, the editors of Edmunds.com released their 2013 New Car Buying Guide. In it, they offer comprehensive information and recommendations for every vehicle in the class of 2013. The guide is very well written and is meant to help you learn which models should be at the top of your consideration list before you begin to shop.
Below, you'll find their recommendations for Sedans, Coupes, and SUVs, but the full guide covers 7 other segments including hybrids, trucks, vans, and more. Be sure to use the CarWoo Deal Finder to get the best deals after choosing the vehicle you want to purchase.

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise 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.
