A few months back, Cars.com launched reader reviews, where anyone under the sun can write a critique of their own car, truck or SUV. We realized that many people would rate their beloved daily drivers with five stars across the board, but there are a lot of astute readers out there leaving insightful commentary that other shoppers can learn from. As an editorial staff, we don’t live with the cars we review for more than a week, so hearing from real buyers allows everyone to learn about real-world mileage, reliability and overall satisfaction.
Today we’re debuting a “Reader Review of the Week” award here on KickingTires. Unfortunately, there’s no trophy or prize money, just the satisfaction of knowing your review will help other shoppers during their research.
This week’s winner is JM94 from Germantown, Md., who reviewed a 2006 Subaru Outback.
