Best Cars & SUVs of 2018 & 2019

This week, I wanted to introduce you to Alex, a youtuber who does excellent in-depth car reviews called Alex on Autos.

I've been checking out his reviews for awhile now and I like his consistency and angle when it comes to car reviews. Unlike a lot of other car reviewers, he's more focused on overall value, rather than horsepower and performance. This is what most car shoppers are looking for.

Over the past year, he's reviewed over 150 different vehicles, and picked his favorite cars (listed below). I've embedded the video here, but I recommend you check out his full channel and subscribe to his reviews.

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.

Step 3 Complete my Checklist

Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
