Popular Cars with Lots of Recalls

December 18, 2014

There haven been many vehicle recalls issued this year, making car buyers a bit pickier when it comes to selection. And although logic may conclude the more popular a vehicle is the less recalls it will have, that is not always the case.

Bankrate.com recently released a list of the 10 most popular vehicles with the highest incidence of recalls from 2007 to 2013. At the top of the list is the Chevrolet Cruze, with an average of 4.8 recalls. Others on the list are the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Altima, and Chrysler Town & Country.

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.
