The 10 Most Recommended New Cars

October 3, 2013

When you're recommending a car to someone else, what may be a great vehicle to you may not be to the person you're suggesting it to, and now they'll be stuck with a car they hate for a long time.

That's why Jalopnik asked their readers what car they would take the chance on recommending to others. They then made a top 10 list of those highly trusted cars. I wanted to share the results with you. At the top of the list? Any Subaru that isn't the Crosstrek XV or B9 - it looks like Subaru owners really love their vehicles.

If you're considering any of these top reader recommendations, make sure to use the free CarWoo Deal Finder for the best deal possible. Also be sure to check out the TrueCar Pre-Negotiated Prices to quickly compare real prices in your local region.

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.
