Best & Worst Infotainment Systems

June 9, 2016

For whatever reason, some car manufacturers still haven't figured out how to create a simple, intuitive infotainment system.

Car buyers can be stuck with frustrating and confusing methods to get navigation, music, and phone calls working properly in the vehicle - and it's hard to judge if an infotainment system is good or not during the short period of a test-drive.

This week, Consumer Reports released a very informative list of the top infotainment systems, ranked by 58,000 actual vehicle owners. The rankings are based on the percentage of owners that were "very satisfied" with the system - the results are listed below.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and RydeShopper to quickly see the best deals being offered in your 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.
