Why do I say that? Well, for starters I wanted to get the most 'bare bones' version of the car that I could, thinking in terms of money, of course. One thing I opted for was manual windows (I didn't even know they made them anymore!). I thought, 'meh, no big deal, so I have to roll my window up and down myself. It'll be worth it in the long run.' Okay, after owning the car for a bit now, I've found that paying extra for the power windows might have been a better choice. Florida gets hot, and I neglected to take into consideration that if I wanted to roll down the windows while driving, that reaching the passenger side in the front would be difficult while moving, and reaching the rear windows, would be impossible. That leaves one window I can control while driving. Not convenient. And so I run the air constantly while in the car. Not something I always want to do, but it is what it is, and it's definitely better than roasting (which you would do if only one window was open).
The Jetta can't match the Civic's ample front cabin storage, offering a just-adequate device tray and a small center console bin. -Cars.com
That's just one small example of how Cars.com can be of assistance to you. In addition to the Videos & Review feature, you also get genuine (not at all sugar-coated) reviews of the cars you might be interested in buying. For example, when researching the Volkswagon Jetta it compares it in some areas to a similar type of vehicle, the Honda Civic. That's a gem to me, because when I know the type of car I want, understanding the differences between the ones I like is a big deal when it comes to investing time to test drive, and ultimately make a purchase. Cars.com reviews the big things (like engine and performance) all the way down to the smaller but still important things, like console space.
|Future Vehicle Goal. I love this truck!|
This is a great feature too, because it may introduce to you a similar car or truck you had not yet considered but could end up loving. For me, the reviews on the F-150 (a beauty of a truck in its own right) led to me reading reviews on the Nissan Titan. I wouldn't have thought to read the latter if not perusing Cars.com. Now I know that the Titan has a lot of features I really do love, and have put it as a direct contender to the Ford I was originally researching. The improvements made with the latest model are intriguing to say the least.
