Small Cars With The Best Reliability

If you're interested in a small vehicle and reliability is a top concern, I have good news. Consumer Reports recently released a list of what they consider the most reliable small cars available right now. Their list includes the Scion xB, Toyota Yaris, and Honda Civic.

On the flipside, they also highlight small cars you should avoid. That list includes the Fiat 500L, Ford Fiesta, and Chevrolet Cruze.

If a small car is what you're looking for, and you want to make sure you don't pay a big price for it, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, CarsDirect and NADAGuides to compare the best prices among your local dealers.

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.
