The Most and Least Reliable Cars

October 26, 2017

Reliability is a huge factor when it comes to purchasing a vehicle. After all, no one wants to spend their hard-earned dollars on a car or truck that is constantly needing repairs.

Consumer Reports recently released their picks for the most and least reliable vehicles available on the market right now. Vehicles considered the most reliable include the Kia Niro, Subaru BRZ, and Lexus ES, while those on the least reliable list include the Chevrolet Camaro, Mercedes GLC, and Jaguar F-Pace. The full lists are below.

And for reliably low prices, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
