Default Websites that rate cars?

I am looking at new and low mileage used cars under $35,000. Consumer reports wants you to subscribe before letting you see their info. Anybody know other good websites to check on maintenance problems of various models of cars?

Edmunds.com is one of my favorites ... Has some consumer ratings on there.

great price site...

http://www.truecar.com/

use the graph & detail for $ brake down and trends ..

this might serve ya well .. it helped us buy between great/good price price at local dealer 2 wks ago

we bought a hyundai touring wagon SE model with all bells and whistles -roof,leather,htd seats..

when you narrow down the search, also google the model,rebate,month ..

Edmunds .com is great for what goes wrong with cars and even better are the forums like this one for other makes..
