July 31, 2014

The summer is still going strong, but before you know it school will be starting. And with school comes sporting practices, dance lessons, music rehearsals, science fairs, and just oodles of other activities that will have you schlepping your family members and their gear all over town.

If you're in need of a larger vehicle that will fit everything comfortably, lucky for you there's some great used SUVs available for under $30,000. US News & World Report's Blog has all the details on these midsize and large SUVs that are not only budget friendly, but rank high in reliability. Those on the list include the 2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, 2011 Buick Enclave, and 2012 Mazda CX-9.

And for even greater savings on these SUVs, make sure to use TrueCar and RydeShopper for the best prices in your local area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best 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.
