The Safest Vehicles for Your Money

Most agree, safety is a top concern when buying a car. So if you're looking for a new vehicle, you're not just looking at price - you want to know just how safe it really is.

Insure.com has you covered - they recently announced the best and worst vehicles for your money when it comes to protecting passengers from injuries.

So who topped the list? Well, let's put it this way - if you're looking to own a GMC pickup or SUV, Insure.com says you're making a great choice. GMC models took four of the top five spots. The #2 spot was snagged by the Porsche Cayenne.

The worst? The number one is the Fiat 500, which Insure.com says carried the highest PIP (Personal Injury Protection) and MedPay (Medical Payments) costs among the 750 vehicles in the 2013 model year they studied.

Thinking of adding one of these cars to your garage? As always, I recommend turning to RydeShopper to get the best deals.

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.
