Safest Midsize Cars & SUVs

October 24, 2013

After price, safety is normally the most important thing on a car buyer's mind. Whether it's your own personal safety, or the safety of your family and loved ones, nobody wants to purchase a car that could pose a problem.

Recently Forbes put together a list of the 13 safest midsize cars and SUVs available today, based on recent evaluations by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The list includes the likes of the Acura MDX, Cadillac SRX, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Mazda Mazda6.

If you're considering adding one of these top safety picks to your garage, make sure to use the free CarWoo Deal Finder for the lowest price possible. And be sure to check out TrueCar Pre-Negotiated Prices to compare real prices where you live.

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.
