It's every car owners nightmare -- you go outside to find your car is not where you left it. At first you think maybe it's one row over in the parking lot, but soon you come to realize it's not you -- your car has been stolen.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau recently published its latest "Hot Wheels" report, detailing the top 10 vehicles that thieves love to get their grubby paws on. At the top of the list is the Honda Accord, which had a total of 58,596 thefts in 2012. That is followed closely by the Honda Civic, with 47,037 thefts last year.

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.
