I still remember when I purchased my first car. I did a lot of research the old way by reading car magazine reviews and Consumer Reports. When we purchased our current SUV, we relied on the internet when we did our research. One good website for auto information is http://www.auto123.com/. They have car reviews for all new models and the latest car news in the industry. This website currently has a contest called 'Drive, Rate and Fly.' Basically, you evaluate a car, rate it's features and be entered into a drawing where you can win either a car racing vacation or a vacation down south. If you are interested in buying a used car, you can find used car reviews in this site and also find a dealership near you.
