which-car-to-buy

Some people labor over their choices of smartphones and tablets. Imagine how car buyers feel. There’s no messing around when you’re talking about your chief mode of transportation, and when tens of thousands of dollars are at stake, the pressure to choose the right one can be immense.

Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. To make things a little easier for consumers, the car geeks at Jalopnik recently put their heads together for a huge flow chart that tells people which auto they should buy. The comprehensive graphic is sort of like a mammoth “choose your own adventure” chart. Users just answer the questions and follow the lines until they lead to their perfect vehicle from among 70+ Jalopnik-approved cars.

Unfortunately there’s no app for this, so the site suggests printing it out and taking it to the dealership. We think it’s best used strictly at home, but your mileage may vary.
