Cars With the Best & Worst Values
January 2, 2014Consumer Reports wants to make sure you're getting value for your dollars, and has recently released their list of vehicles that provide the best and worst values based on reliability, performance and maintenance costs.
On the best list are the likes of the Toyota Prius Four, Honda Fit, and Scion xB. While on the worst list are the Nissan Armada Platinum, BMW 750Li, and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara.
