With so many options, sometimes it can be really hard -- and downright overwhelming -- to make a decision on a new car. If you're having trouble, here's something you'll want to read -- Edmunds.com recently released a list of what they consider the 17 best cars you can buy.

For instance, when it comes to the best subcompact, their pick is the 2013 Mini Cooper. For best midsize sedan, they say pick the 2013 Nissan Altima. And for the best sports car, go with the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.
