Cars With Most and Least Fatalities
Safety is a huge concern when it comes to cars - we all want vehicles that will protect us during an accident. Personally, my preference is to own a small vehicle, but as statistics show, smaller vehicles have much higher death rates during an accident, so I personally choose to drive a larger vehicle.
This week, Forbes compiled a list of cars from the 2014 model year that had the most and least passenger fatalities. As expected, larger vehicles had less fatalities, and the list of most fatalities was made up almost entirely of sub-compact vehicles.
If you're considering a sub-compact vehicle, this is something you need to take into account unfortunately.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe 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 NetworkSelect 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.

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, 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.
