    Default Cars on "Product Review" website

    Have a look at www.productreview.com.au

    There are heaps of car reviews from Aussie consumers.... I just added one for my Fiat Punto

    According to reviews, Renault Clio and Citroen C4 are popular with owners..

    If you own a C3 or Megane you might like to add a review as there is only one review each

    and perhaps predictably Great Wall products rated low.. one person gave it 1 Star and said it is already rusting.....

    Have a look.. very interesting

    I don't get it -- it's supposed to be an Australian product review site, yet the two whiniest 206 reviews (perhaps predictably) talk about having paid so many "pounds" for one, and use "mph" as their measure of speed ... there's also a theme of complaints about pedal spacing which claim that the accelerator is too close to the brake, but that was never my problem with it -- it's the clutch vs brake pedal spacing that was sometimes a problem for people with big feet.

    Many reviews read true, but on the whole, it's a site that's probably too easily manipulated by paid fans and critics, I'd say. If you had to nominate your rego, might be a different or slightly more dependable story ...

    Check out the 207 "reviews"! Pretty much straight out of the marketing blurbs.

    Online car review boards only reveal one thing - the type of people who submit entires to a car review board.

    Read by all means but don't take too much of it as gospel.

    Also those with an axe to grind are usually more vocal.
