The Best New Cars of 2013
March 14, 2013Consumer Reports recently released their top vehicle picks for 2013 in 10 categories, from midsized sedan to sports cars. Each winner ranks at or near the top of its category when it comes to road tests, reliability and safety.
This year's winners include Honda, which did not make the list last year - but this year has a nice showing with three of its cars - Accord, CR-V and Odyssey - taking top mentions. Also on the list are BMW, Audi, Subaru, Hyundai and Scion. When you're ready to negotiate your car purchase, I recommend using the free RydeShopper to get the biggest discounts on these vehicles.

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.
