New Fuel Economy Labels Unveiled for New Cars
Until now, it's been difficult to compare the fuel economy of electric vehicles to those of conventional gas-powered vehicles.
The new stickers, required on all 2013 models, makes it easier for consumers to compare fuel savings at a glance, regardless of whether the car is gas, electric, or hybrid.
For instance, the labels show how much fuel or electricity would be required to drive 100 miles, and the time needed to charge a plug-in vehicle.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides 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.
