More help online for new car and used car research, shopping

Shopping for a new car, SUV or truck?

That probably means you also are searching online for Websites that will help you narrow your choices and make the right decision. And that can be almost as dizzying as choosing the car itself.

More help online for new and used car research & shopping


Well, that’s where The Open Road blog at comes in.

We blogged about the Top 10 car-shopping Websites – “Where to find help online for new car and used car shopping” – April 11 at The Open Road. The original list, also available at as “The 10 Best Car Buying Sites,” was selected by that Website’s users. But this blog post offers additional helpful Web sites we found at NetTop20 and most of which are not listed in our previous posting. The list “brings you the pick of the best and most popular new car buying guide services online today.”

Four sites rank high on both lists –, Yahoo! Autos, and Two of those sites, (Special Offers) and (Partner Marketplace), also endorse RoadLoans as a “Trusted” or “Preferred Direct” lender. Ranking on both NetTop20 and OftenOnline lists should qualify the four destinations as go-to sites to research your next car, SUV or truck purchase.

“Consumers buying a car have more information at their fingertips now than ever, and there is a big trend towards researching and purchasing new autos online,” says NetTop20.

“There are now a number of dedicated car buying guides on the Net which enable the buyer to get the best features and the best new car price, without all the dealer visits and haggling that was necessary before,” says NetTop20. “And to make finding the right deal for you even more convenient, we bring you the leading new autos sites on a single page. That way you get one-stop access to the pick of the best and most popular new autos sites where you are most likely to find the best deals.”

Other top-rated sites, listed in order of appearance on NetTop20, are TrueCar (1) and Autobytel (5), as well as CarsDirect (6), InvoiceDealers (9), and CarPrices (10).

Then, after you have completed your research and are ready to buy, visit online lender RoadLoans to get started on your financing. RoadLoans provides a fast-and-easy financing with loan approval in seconds, even with bruised credit. It’s “auto finance made easy,” says RoadLoans.
