Cars With the Best & Worst Values
Consumer Reports wants to make sure you're getting value for your dollars, and has recently released their list of vehicles that provide the best and worst values based on reliability, performance and maintenance costs.
On the best list are the likes of the Toyota Prius Four, Honda Fit, and Scion xB. While on the worst list are the Nissan Armada Platinum, BMW 750Li, and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara.

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. 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.
