  • It Wants To Be, It Wants To Be...The "New" Motor Trend

    Dec 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent photography, attractive layout
    Cons: Questionable past history, brash self-righteous attitude, feeling they don't give all.

    Summary: Motor Trend (MT) is the periodical equivalent of the high-school tough-guy whose reputation's origins are largely unknown other than the fact he beat up an anemic kid back in second grade and nobody's dared test him since. The cutesy spelling of ... read more

  • Motor Trend Magazine: The Good and the Bad

    Jan 9, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Photography; Test drives and facts
    Cons: Too many articles on luxury cars; Car of the year bias

    Summary: If you enjoy all things automotive and like to keep up with the changes in Detroit and around the world, you can turn to several sources both on the internet and in print. Magazines are one of the most popular traditional options and one magazine that ... read more

  • An Old Favorite Has a New Face

    May 13, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well written articles; cutting edge images; lots of ground covered.
    Cons: Too much advertising.

    Summary: Like most men in their twenties I was a car guy. I ate and drank the elixir of horsepower, torque, RPM’s, wheel-base cockpit esthetics, and sheet metal. I could recite long lists of carlines and their varying specifications. I subscribed to and ... read more

  • A Slice of Apple Pie

    Apr 22, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: $10 a year subscription price, Inside scoop on cars/next generation projects, pictures
    Cons: Emphasis on high priced cars out of range for most consumers

    Summary: Motor Trend is an American tradition, coming in slightly behind Apple Pie, Ice Cream, Pizza, Donuts, and drive thru coffee shops. I fell in love with cars first, before I realized that girls didn't have cooties.(I was 25 at the time....just joking. ... read more

  • From Chevy to Bentley - Motor Trend has it.

    Nov 26, 2005 by

    Pros: plenty of features, good comparison data,nice mix of reviews
    Cons: too many ads

    Summary: In front of the computer here I have a July 2005 edition of Motor Trend magazine. It's used, but in good condition. Opening bid is $0.01 and shipping... Oops,wrong website! This is the first issue of Motor Trend magazine that I have bought. I've ... read more

  • Motor Trend- Want to find out how fast your car can go from 0-60?

    May 4, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to read formatting, Well written reviews, Surveys/reader mail, subscription price.
    Cons: Far too many advertisements, cover price, questionable 0-60 and 1/4th times on many cars.

    Summary: While Car and Driver magazine Boasts better sales than Motor Trend, Motor Trend has always been my favorite car Mag. I have been subscribing to Motor Trend Magazine for over 8 months now, and have been buying individual issues off and on for as ... read more

  • Motor Trend, but will the trend continue?

    Apr 13, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Massive car specs/performance data, new car info
    Cons: Same thing every issue, they make every car sound great

    Summary: A couple of years ago I received a free subscription to motor trend as a gift. To tell the truth, I was excited about it and I looked forward to the magazine coming every month. But after about a year of getting the magazine, it just turned into ... read more

  • An absolute rag. Well, it used to be. It might be getting better...

    Sep 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Future car info; Surprising test results?
    Cons: Too many to list.

    Summary: About two years ago I had an opportunity to receive a free Motor Trend subscription. I turned it down. As much as I like free stuff, you've got to draw the line somewhere. The writers at this mag have entirely no credibility. They always find a way to ... read more

  • Motor Trend is the best car mag ever. Period.

    Jul 18, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Motor Trend writes about all types of cars, not just expensive exotics and luxury cars
    Cons: Maybe a bit too many pictures?

    Summary: OK, I admit it, I like Motor Trend because of its pictures. Motor Trend is different from most car magazines in that instead of providing just one or two pics, it usually provides upwards of 5 or 6 high quality pics per car. This means a lot to me ... read more

  • Revved Up Read

    Jun 12, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fabulous coverage of dream machines as well as real road automobiles
    Cons: A little too much gear-head jargon

    Summary: Motor Trend is a great magazine for hard core auto enthusiasts and casual car lovers alike. It has lots of pics and articles on dream machines and concept cars that will make you drool. It's like porn for car lovers. You know you'll never be able to ... read more

  • Not all it's cracked up to be . . .

    Jan 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Superb photography / Occasional great article
    Cons: Many boring articles / Excessive advertising

    Summary: Today my 4th issue of Motor Trend arrived. However, instead of getting home and reading into it like I have the past 3 times, I set it quietly on the dining room table. I scanned through this month's articles with little fanfare, seeing nothing much ... read more

  • All about toys

    Nov 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of Horsepower, fun articles
    Cons: not too practical to base buying a car from

    Summary: If you are into out of reach toys, like $200,000 super cars, Motor Trend is for you. Or if you enjoy finding out just how fast every car on the road is, again Motor Trend is for you. Moter Trend does not like to show small details about what makes a ... read more

  • ME like....... ME like.......

    Oct 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: all
    Cons: none

    Summary: I really like this magazine. They do a superb job of reviewing and critiquing cars. Motor Trend helped us pick and buy our last three cars. Our 1989 Volvo 740 GLE, our 1998 Chrysler Town and Country, and our 2000 BMW 323ci. We always heard ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Pretty pictures of fast cars
    Cons: Journalists without integrity, inaccurate, technically incompetent

    Summary: I have been a subscriber to several car magazines for at least the past 15 years of my life. Two of my greatest passions in life are automobiles and journalism: combine these two and you have somebody who consumes car magazines as if it were popcorn. I ... read more

  • More Sparkle and Shine, Less Horsepower

    Oct 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Detailed American auto show coverage, excellent car care tips
    Cons: Biased towards Glamour, little attention paid to inexpensive cars

    Summary: While sometimes it is interesting to energize one's fantasies with 400 horsepower, $300,000 supercars, a comparison of these rather expensive toys every couple of months gets tiring - especially if you can't even afford a single monthly payment on one ... read more

  • Honest, hon, I buy it for the articles!!!

    Sep 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: cars, and we love to love cars
    Cons: can be biased, cater towards cars that most can never buy.

    Summary: I have, over the course of the last several years, received one car mag or another. Road and Track and Motor Trend are the two prominent ones. I received my Motor Trend mag from one of those gaming sites when I punched the monkey or something. ... read more

  • A Waste of Paper

    Sep 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: pictures
    Cons: bias, tempermental writer, poorly written

    Summary: I've been a long time subscriber to auto related magazines and recently (about 2 years ago) started to recieve motor trend at a $10/year rate. First of all, the magazine is extremely thin when compared to other auto mags. Subscribers get jipped by an ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Well Written, Beautiful Photographs
    Cons: this year's truck of the year

    Summary: Motor Trend is my favorite mainstream car mag. It has well balanced coverage of domestic and import products. The photographs are good and usually the Car of the Year is well chosen (with a possible exception to this years truck of the year--Nissan ... read more

  • The hyper child screaming for attention

    Jun 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: They are a car magazine
    Cons: Immature and unrealistic

    Summary: I know there are many of you out there that are loyal to motor trend as if it was family, but it is time you realize that these guys are just testing outrageous cars and making up ridiculous stats for these cars. For instance, motor trend always seems ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: price,comparison tests
    Cons: none

    Summary: I have been a Motor Trend suscriber for years and this is a mag that most people enjoy. They are not strictly a car magazine, they have lots of tests on trucks, vans, and sport-utes also. An article that sticks in my mind was the Top Speed Shootout a few ... read more
