9 New Cars You Should Avoid Buying

The Car Connection this week released a list of 9 vehicles for 2018 that you should avoid buying. The reasons vary from outdated designs, to lackluster rides and barebone features.

See below for the list of vehicles to avoid, and which alternative vehicle is recommended. As always, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see if the best prices local dealers are offering right now.

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.
