Best New Cars to Consider for 2017
This week, Cars.com released a list of 2017 Car of the Year nominees. These are what they consider the best vehicles within six different categories.
If you're shopping for a vehicle within these categories, I urge you to test-drive the recommended vehicle. For example, in the compact SUV category, Cars.com feels the Kia Sportage is best, but a lot of car shoppers ignore this particular model.

|Best Compact SUV||2017 Kia Sportage|
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, 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.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
