About The Car Connection
The Car Connection is the car review site that makes car research easier. Here's how we do it:
- We feature unique meta-reviews that combine expert car reviews with opinions gathered from around the Web, all presented together with a simple rating.
- We build our meta reviews with a team of veteran car journalists with more than 50 years' worth of automotive experience driving 300 new cars each year. We also report car news, and write buying guides and advice that focus on what consumers need to know.
