Best & Worst Infotainment Systems

For whatever reason, some car manufacturers still haven't figured out how to create a simple, intuitive infotainment system.

Car buyers can be stuck with frustrating and confusing methods to get navigation, music, and phone calls working properly in the vehicle - and it's hard to judge if an infotainment system is good or not during the short period of a test-drive.

This week, Consumer Reports released a very informative list of the top infotainment systems, ranked by 58,000 actual vehicle owners. The rankings are based on the percentage of owners that were "very satisfied" with the system - the results are listed below.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to quickly see the best deals being offered in your 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.
