The Best Cars for Your Family

All families are not created equal, so it stands to reason that all family cars shouldn't be alike either. Each year, the editors of Kelley Blue Book name what they consider to be the top 10 best cars for families.

This year's list includes the Honda Accord, Toyota Prius V, Volkswagen Passat, Ford Fusion, and Nissan Altima - all of which scored high in areas like safety, roominess, comfort and value.

For the best deals on any of these cars, make sure to use the free to maximize your savings.

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.
