Car Buying & Pricing

Last updated: September 2014

Get the car you want

The key to getting a great deal on a new car is to be informed. Consumer Reports offers detailed information through our online subscription, starting with road tests, reliability, and basic pricing information. Shoppers can then take advantage of the time- and money-saving Build & Buy Car Buying service to get competitive prices from local dealers who are held accountable for high customer satisfaction.

With Cars Best Deals Plus, subscribers gain access to more-detailed reliability and owner satisfaction data, and unlimited new and used car price reports that provide all the pricing you need to negotiate a great deal and understand how it compares to what others are paying. Check out the stories below to learn more about the services, and see our lists highlighting current deals on Consumer Reports recommended cars.
