I love using Yahoo as an efficient search engine, but never looked at their other services. For those love to peep into to automobile market and compare auto prices, or just for fun, want to know new car prices, Yahoo autos can be great site to visit at least for once.

What features I found interesting about Yahoo’s Car Deal site is-they provide a very useful car comparison tool. You may find other useful information such as new car, used car, green cars, latest car etc.

How to compare auto price in Yahoo Auto?

To me comparing to cars is one of the most important deciding factors before buying a car and yahoo autos offers to compare up to 4 cars at time. Their auto price comparing tool address is: http://autos.yahoo.com/car-compare/ After enter the site select the brand, model, and year, and then click the “add “ button, now the same way select the second car and then click on the “compare vehicles” button.
