10 Steps to Finding the Right Car for You

Step 4. Consider Other Cars in the Class


Finding the Right Car

Have your mind — or heart — set on a specific car? Many shoppers do. But in today's ever-changing marketplace, there are always new cars hitting the showroom, and one that you've never even considered could be right for you. At Edmunds.com, you can easily research and compare similar cars to find the one that truly fits you best.

If you already have a car in mind, search for it to see a list of similar cars in the same class. Or, you can search by vehicle segment listed in our New Car Buying Guides. Once you find a worthy prospect, you can easily check for detailed information on pricing, specifications, features and road tests. You can also compare vehicles to discover similar cars you might have overlooked. If, on the other hand, you have no idea where to begin, you can consult the Best Cars section of our site. The New Car Buying Guides are handy here, too.

i have owned 2 nissan maximas. i qwned a 2005, 2010, & a 2011. i only have 10,654 miles on it. its been garage kept. i paid $36,765.98 for thiws car. i got on line qand it told me the car on trade in is only worth $20,182. a private party its worth $21,902. and dealer retail is $23,366. i think this is bull shit. car dealers and insurance compaines are nothing but legal crooks. i have my maxima in the paper and i am asking $25,500.00. i have a brand new set of tires and wheels. my car has been garage kept. i know for a fact when i traded my 2010 maxima in for a 2011 i got ripped off. i came back to the lot a week later and they put a price tag on it, and was asking $29,999.99 for it. so my advice to anyone is to get a aprasile first. bgecaus these dealers will rip you off everytime. there is not a honest car salesman, no wheres. they have 1 thing on their mind, and that is money and screw you. so be careful when you go to buy and trade. and they will tell you the biggest lie there is.
