When I first came across the phrase “Yahoo Autos”, I thought that like Yahoo's partnership with Microsoft, they are also investing in the automobile industry. 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.

Let me show you with an example that how I compared car prices with Yahoo Auto. For getting a sample comparison I choose two cars- Toyota Matrix and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, the following screen shots are the comparison details.

Though we have been hearing a lot about green energy and green car, yet we lack proper knowledge about green car technology and its benefits. Yahoo auto has a rich section about green car technology and its benefits and for people considering going for green car can visit this section to get a comprehensive grasp about green technology. Present day green technology broadly divides green car technology into the following

  • Hybrid & Electric car: they use gasoline engine and electric motor. As far as green car efficiency is concerned, they are simply the best in the green car genre.
  • Diesel & bio-diesel: normally, bid diesel is used as an alternative fuel in diesel engine, since bio diesel is much environmental friendly than diesel.
  • Ethanol: this type of green car use Ethanol as 85 percent of its fuel
  • Natural gas: they used compress natural gas as fuel, much cleaner than gasoline engine.

Note: Buying a green car not only helps our environment, but you can get benefits like tax credits. And as the fossil fuel is soon to be an obsolete source of energy, using green car will help us to be more comfortable and adaptable with this future energy sources.

    Negotiating for a car can be a little tricky. You must know how to haggle for the best price and use those tricks on your sleeves. If you have one, then be prepared to use them.

    If you don't know any tricks, check out Dr. Suzanne Gudakunst's Top Secret Car Secret and learn how to get 30% to even 90% of your new car
