Before car blogs, people could only turn to automotive shows, magazines, newspapers, and their neighborhood car mechanic for all things car-related.
Thanks to the internet, car blogs have taken the front seat of motoring journalism. These bloggers are just as authoritative and quick to deliver automotive news as their mainstream media counterparts, sometimes even faster.
