Top 6 Cars with the Best Safety Ratings
July 18, 2013
When it comes to your car, safety should be a top priority. However, not every car is the same when it comes to safety -- each has its own bells and whistles that they claim make it safer than the competition. But whose claims are true?
To help cut through some of the confusion, our friends at BankRate.com recently put together a list of six vehicles with top safety ratings. These are cars that all have the highest ratings on crash tests administered by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
On the list? Popular vehicles like the Honda Accord and the Subaru Outback. The other good news is all six vehicles are under $40,000. Considering one of these top safety picks? Remember to use the free CarWoo Deal Finder to get the biggest discounts on these vehicles.

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.
