The Safest New Vehicles

Next to price, safety is the most important attribute consumers look for when buying a vehicle. After all, the main purpose of a car is to transport you and your most precious cargo, and knowing your vehicle has a top safety rating can give you peace of mind.

To help you figure out which vehicles available today are the safest, Forbes compiled a list of vehicles they deem the safest, based on a variety of factors including IIHS crash-test results, and safety technology including auto-braking.

If you're considering purchasing any of these vehicles, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to get the best price from local dealers.

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.
