The Safest Vehicles for Your Money
Most agree, safety is a top concern when buying a car. So if
you're looking for a new vehicle, you're not just looking at price -
you want to know just how safe it really is.
Insure.com has you covered - they recently announced the best and worst vehicles for your money when it comes to protecting passengers from injuries.
So who topped the list? Well, let's put it this way - if you're looking to own a GMC pickup or SUV, Insure.com says you're making a great choice. GMC models took four of the top five spots. The #2 spot was snagged by the Porsche Cayenne.
The worst? The number one is the Fiat 500, which Insure.com says carried the highest PIP (Personal Injury Protection) and MedPay (Medical Payments) costs among the 750 vehicles in the 2013 model year they studied.
Thinking of adding one of these cars to your garage? As always, I recommend turning to CarWoo Deal Finder to get the best deals.

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area.

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.
