Best and Worst Models for 2015

As with any product, every year there are some great ones...and some not-so-great ones. And cars are no different -- each year brings about a number of new models, some of which get lots of acclaim and others that for whatever reason fall to the wayside.

With 2015 rapidly coming to a close, Consumer Reports recently revealed their list of both the best and worst vehicles for 2015. The results are based on how vehicles ranked after undergoing more than 50 different tests and evaluations.

So who made the best list? There are eight vehicles, including the Volkswagen Golf, Ford F-150, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Subaru Legacy.

As for the worst list, the four vehicles there include the Chrysler 200, Land Rover Discovery Sport, Lexus NX 200t/300h, and Kia Sedona.

If you're considering purchasing one of 2015's best vehicles, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best prices in your local area.

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.
