Top 10 Best Car Deals This Month

Each month, Consumer Reports picks their list of the top 10 best new car deals nationwide.

To qualify, the vehicles have to be current year models that have met Consumer Reports' criteria to be recommended. That means they scored well in testing, had average or better reliablity, and performed well in safety tests.

All of the models this month can be negotiated 15% or more off MSRP. Most come with cash-back rebates.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
