You can often find a list of the best-selling cars in America published annually by a wide number of distinguished publications such as U.S. News, Edmunds, Road and Track, Car and Driver and more.

While many drivers still use the rating system to assist in their purchase decision the most valuable information is always the car reviews and not necessarily the number rank of a vehicle on a top 10 list.

Below are links to some of the best selling cars across a range of categories — including SUV trucks, pickup trucks, hybrid cars, luxury vehicles and more — for 2011.

What should you look for in a new car?

Most drivers start with price and then try to find a vehicle which has the most value for the dollar. However, no matter how much you can afford, value should never be solely measured on how many CD changers, seats or phone chargers a vehicle has.

Buying a vehicle is a large investment (often the second highest only to a house most people ever make) and before purchasing a vehicle always consider some or all of these items in your comparison shopping:

  • Warranty and Extended Warranty Coverage
  • Cost of Financing
  • Luggage Space
  • Full Efficiency
  • Resale Value
  • Cost of Auto Insurance
  • Safety Features
  • Anti-Theft Features

You also need to look at independent safety reports such as those from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute and more. Government and independent safety ratings play a critical role in identifying both the safety of the vehicle and the cost of auto insurance.

Should I buy a new car or used car?

This is a very common question and almost any financial advisor will explain a new car is a very bad investment. Purchasing one even just a few months old can often result in significant savings. New car sales have always been very popular but it has never been about the value of the investment but the pure addiction to the new car smell.

For a small period of time, auto leasing was only available on new cars and this made a very significant impact for many consumers about the decision to buy a new vehicle. However, auto leasing is available today on all kinds of new, used, and pre-owned cars today so you can still benefit from the many advantages of leasing even with an older vehicle.

There really is no reason to ever buy a brand new vehicle unless you like throwing money away.

How much is auto insurance for a new car?

Auto insurance rates for any vehicle will vary based on the type of vehicle insured, how it will be used along with numerous other variables including your driving record, credit score and more. It’s impossible to answer such a general question but you can view some average auto insurance rates by make and model here.

You also want to pay special attention to how auto insurance works well before buying a vehicle. Medical costs and personal injury claims are extraordinarily high and without the right type of insurance, you could be left underinsured or uninsured in a car accident.

Learn about the different types of auto insurance, how they work and what to consider in an auto insurance policy before committing to coverage.
