It’s 2018 now. In all honesty, will you make an important purchase without checking online reviews and ratings? According to recent research, only 10% of people never read online recommendations. 4 in 5 consumers will reverse a purchase decision after reading negative reviews. But the point is this: can we trust all consumer feedback published on the net? Sometimes the experience of one professional driver may be completely different from the experience of another. There’s nothing worse than investing a significant amount of money in cars or parts only to find out that other drivers have had problems with them, or that other parts from a different manufacturer work better, last longer, or provide a better value.
In order to help you make the right decision, we have created our website dedicated to reviews written by professionals about trucks, UTVs, SUVs. If you need practical advice on cars and accessories, maintenance, fuels, tyres, safety, GPS and more, our reviews, tests, information and purchase guides will help you.
