If you want to know whether a car is worth buying, you obviously have to drive it. Of course, you can read what the experts have to say. This will help you find the real gems and weed out the lemons. That said, if you’re getting a new car, get behind the wheel and give it your own test drive.All of Bullz-Eye.com's car reviews involve extensive road tests of the vehciles as we usually have the car to drive for a full week. We also participate in numerous "First Drive" events where the automakers give the press access to the vehicles for a day when the cars are initially being released. After a full day we get a very good feel of the vehicle. We've also particpated in some drive events that have given us road test experiences that are more unique and we've linked to them below.
As for other car experts, we’ve provided some links to excellent resources for expert road tests to help you make your decision and narrow your list. Remember, however, that your own road test is critical.
