If you are in the market for a new or used car it is important to get advice from a number of sources. If you have a friend in the know then that’s good for you but many haven’t. In this case there is plenty of advice out there but whom do you trust? There are many opinion channels including those like Ciao who offer good hopefully unbiased advice but in the plethora of car magazines on the newsagents shelf who can you trust.

For many years when it has got time to renew my company car I have bought a couple of consecutive copies of What Car and used its articles to point me in the right direction. The road test reports it carries have varying levels of thoroughness and depth. There are short first drive reports and much longer first impression reports, there are articles of ‘What’s new’ in which recent or about to be launched models are previewed. The Group Tests which What Car does are very useful and it is always worth looking out for an edition of What Car when such a group test covers the type of vehicle (eg roadster, executive car, supermini etc) you will potentially buy.

However it does not stop there as cars are subject to further analysis as they age and updates on the progress of cars are frequently covered at 30k, 50k or even 100k miles. Finally there is useful and realistic advice given for those who will be buying second hand. The back of the magazine carries comprehensive data on every variant of every model on sale in the UK and this data details the equipment levels, option costs, economy, performance and even the running costs of all the new cars.

My advice is if you are in the market to change your car then get a copy of What Car to help you.
