The 10 Most Recommended New Cars
October 3, 2013When you're recommending a car to someone else, what may be a great vehicle to you may not be to the person you're suggesting it to, and now they'll be stuck with a car they hate for a long time.
That's why Jalopnik asked their readers what car they would take the chance on recommending to others. They then made a top 10 list of those highly trusted cars. I wanted to share the results with you. At the top of the list? Any Subaru that isn't the Crosstrek XV or B9 - it looks like Subaru owners really love their vehicles.
If you're considering any of these top reader recommendations, make sure to use the free RydeShopper for the best deal possible. Also be sure to check out the TrueCar Pre-Negotiated Prices to quickly compare real prices in your local region.
