Are you planning to buy a new or used car in 2011? If you are, I’m sure you’ve done your homework in an effort to save money and spend wisely. But it’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed by all of the options available to you. What model suits your lifestyle? Which manufacturer offers the best warranty? How much are replacements and repairs going to cost? In addition to these questions, you’ve probably considered fuel economy, because you know buying a fuel efficient car saves you money in the long run. The U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have developed a new Web site, FuelEconomy.gov, to provide drivers with valuable side-by-side vehicle comparisons and fuel-saving tips. Data is available for new and used passenger vehicles dating back to 1984, including fuel economy, vehicle-specific air pollution emissions information, and safety ratings. Buying a car is an important decision; FuelEconomy.gov can help you make a smart choice.
