March 3, 2016

Thinking of purchasing a new car this year? Then you'll want to read this!

Consumer Reports recently named what they consider the 10 best vehicles on the market in the United States based on performance, reliability, safety and owner satisfaction. Vehicles on the list include the Honda Fit, Toyota Camry, Chevrolet Impala, Kia Sorento, and Ford F-150. The full list is below.

Thinking about adding one of these Best of 2016 vehicles to your garage? I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see what local dealers are offering.

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.
