CDK's purchase of Auto/Mate may create a major disruption in the dealer management system (DMS) industry. Here is our take. DOWNLOAD
1. Audi A6/A7 3.0T Quattro - This car looks great, drives great, and at what some consider a practical price of around 50k+ - it's a great all around pick.
2. BMW 3-Series/M3 - Sporty, sexy, and with an 8300-rpm V-8 this car has yet to be knocked off it's pedestal.
3. Cadillac CTS-V - Definitely a car with "swag." While it's not designed for a fast getaway it's definitely made for smooth sailing.
4. Ford Focus - Although the Focus has had its share of issues in the past we got to give to the the 2012 Focus for its sensational ride handling and admirable power/mpg index. Only warning: don't do the MyFord Touch system!
5. Ford Mustang GT/Boss 302 - Having the name Boss in your title says it all. This car screams "HOT"! Definitely a favorite. It's loud, it's fast, it's... perfect (and at a price tag of 41k it's also affordable).
6. Honda Accord - The name says it all. Reliable, affordable and trusted for decades the Accord is an old favorite that will never likely go away.
7. Honda Fit- This pint sized car packs a big punch. It has the most in-class passenger space compared to other smaller cars as well as a 5- speed manual that is "among the great ambassadors to the stick."
8. Mazda MX-5 Miata - Not a big fan of the body of the car. Looks very 90's to me, but I am impressed that the 2.0-liter, 7200-rpm four offers 167 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque
9. Porsche Boxter/Cayman - Hey if you can afford this, than go for it! This is a true sports car and considering it costs about 30k less than the Porsche 911, it's also a great deal.
10. Volkswagen Golf/GTI - Sporty and affordable are words used to describe this car. While I am not a fan of the look I can appreciate its engine and fuel mpg.
