ConsumerReports.org Cars Best Deals Plus®

Last updated: March 2014

When looking to buy a new car, it's important to do your research so that you don't end up with a clunker or waste your money on a car that won't last in the long run. The Cars section of the site provides free access to a range of information and services, buying and leasing advice, safety issues, recalls, calculators, and auto news and trends.

ConsumerReports.org subscribers have access to our exclusive safety, reliability and performance ratings, as well as our expert reviews, advanced selection tool, and recently enhanced car comparison tool. But for those who want more information, Consumer Reports offers a subscriber upgrade called Cars Best Deals Plus®, which gives enhanced access to:

  • Unlimited new and used car price reports
  • Consumer Reports Bottom Line Price, which includes rebates, incentives and holdbacks to help you negotiate the best deal.
  • A “Dealer Willingness to Negotiate” indicator based on deals recently negotiated in your area.
  • Detailed lists of frequently reported reliability trouble spots based on over 1.2 million vehicles in our latest subscriber survey. Find out how specific vehicles and trims fare in 17 common problem areas ranging from engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and electrical system.
  • Detailed owner satisfaction information based on our annual survey covering specific vehicle aspects: drive, style, features, cost, comfort, value, and size. Find out which features owners like and dislike about their vehicles and which cars they will buy again.

Armed with this in-depth information you'll have all that you need to select the right car and get the best deal when you walk into the dealership.
