About Us

Carbuyer makes choosing a car fun!

Carbuyer is not like other motoring websites – it makes choosing a car easy. Our advice is practical and free from confusing jargon. We provide entertaining test drive videos of all the cars that matter. Plus our testers' unrivalled expertise is backed up with the very best technical data available.

Our staff

Carbuyer's army of authors are all highly experienced journalists and road testers who have bought, driven and owned thousands of new cars between them. We are confident our advice is the most accurate, in-depth and up-to-date available – all of which will put you on the front foot when the time comes to buy.

Unique car finder

Our simple to use car finder will help if you don’t know where to start your search. Cut the thousands of new cars available down to a manageable short list by simply clicking on your requirements. Alternatively, you can browse through all car makes and models.

And it's not just about buying…

Our tips and advice section include a guide to help you to get the best possible price when you sell your current car, as well as pointers on car maintenance, driving in winter and how to scrap your old car. Also included is our how-to section helps with negotiating a price with new car sales staff, buying from a broker and buying a car on finance. What's more, we’ve got advice on the latest new car sales scams, and a checklist of your rights as a consumer.

Carbuyer has been designed to suit the needs of real people

We hope you agree that all this really does make choosing a car easy. But if you feel any areas of the site could be improved or have any other suggestions, we'd be delighted to hear your feedback via the email addresses on the Contact Us page.
