10 New Cars You Should Avoid

When purchasing a car, the last thing someone wants is to be stuck with an unreliable vehicle.

Consumer Reports recently released a list of the 10 least reliable new cars on the market. Those on the list include the Ford C-MAX Energi, Nissan Pathfinder, Hyundai Genesis Coupe and Ford Taurus.

If you're considering one of these models, you may want to reconsider unless you plan on replacing it when the warranty runs out.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and Ryde Shopper 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.
