2/10/2012 - Consumer review source names 2012's best buys and recommended vehicles

The Kia Optima was named to Consumer Guide's list of best auto values.

A noted automotive review publication has released its annual list of best buy and most recommended vehicles for 2012.

Consumer Guide Automotive indicates it compiles the list every year in an effort to make the car buying process easier for people who are in the market to buy a new car.

The vehicle review source says "best buys" are determined based upon the source's editors' opinions about which cars best represent their class. Most recommended winners are determined by more objective criteria, such as price, features, performance, fuel economy and resale value. Factors such as reliability and safety may also be reflected in auto insurance rates.

Included in this year's list for best buys are the Nissan Versa, Ford Expedition, Kia Optima, Buick LaCrosse, Dodge Charger and the Mazda MX-5 Miata. The most recommended vehicles were the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Impreza, Honda Accord, Audi A7 and the Nissan Frontier.
