3.0 out of 5 stars Used to be a great mag... August 12, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Unfortunately, when Csebra...Casasba....Csabsbreaedads, er, forget it, Editor CC took over the reigns, the quality of the mag dropped with it. Readers letters, specifically those with constructive criticism, are often met with sarcastic, child-like responses. There was many a time when I agreed with a reader's letter, only to read CC shoot it down. Where is this man's humility?

The pictures and layout are still good. Some of the covers promise what looks to be an in-depth article, only to find out inside that it's a one or two page affair. All the US car magazines are swamped with ads, keeping our copy price down, the latter of which is nice. But after 16 years of subscription, I chose not to renew in March. I've been looking at recently resurrected Road and Track, and they have really changed their publication from stodgy old-fart affair to a modern, informative read.

Car and Driver doesn't need a new layout. It needs better management.

1.0 out of 5 stars Manufacture Biased Identity Crisis February 6, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
C&D was once entertaining, witty, objective and a great read. The staff worked well together and they put out a consistently good magazine. Then it went through some rough years where it got kind of tame and boring. Now, it's an ill fitting mix of new and old writers trying to be fresh and hip while being spoon fed by the car manufactures. The magazine lacks consistency, focus and any sort of clear vision as to what they're about.

C&D mostly seems to print what the biggest manufactures want them to. There have been several articles lately, such as on the new Nissan GT-R and Corvette ZR1, that literally mirror articles in other magazines even featuring some of the same quotes from the same car execs. You might as well go to the manufacture's websites and read their press releases.

There has been a lot of inconsistency in C&D's reviews. One car will be rave reviewed, and 4 issues later, will place near the bottom of a multi-car comparison test. The impression is very much whichever manufacture spends the most on ads, dinners, drinks, and other gratuities, gets top billing regardless of the quality and performance of their vehicles.

Some of the writing is entertaining, but that's offset by the same tired editors (Csere, Bedard, et al.) who largely keep writing the same stuff they've been whining about for a decade or three. The end result comes off as heavily biased, anything but objective, and an awkard mix of writing styles.

My suggestion: Save some trees and just skim the C&D website for their rare entertaining exclusive article and get the rest of your automotive news somewhere else.

1.0 out of 5 stars What happened to this magazine ? March 16, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
Can barely contain my disappointment. Snarky mocking editors and perspectives that are simply not helpful or even interesting - I went back to C and D and could not have been more disappointed

1.0 out of 5 stars This used to be a good mag March 3, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Haven't read this in a decade and picked it up 'on sale' but I don't even read it anymore and definately won't renew. Thankfully my kids can use it at school for the car pictures in art class. The editors' attitudes and political leanings made me think this was a Fox property --- I don't need Obama bashing and tea party sentiment with my car reviews, thank you very much. The responses to the letters to editor are churlish and snarky. The writing is mediocre and the coverage is biased --- of the last 5 issues 4 have been about the Corvette. Before that it was a few on the Mustang. My suggestion would be to can the staff and start over and do 6 issues a year plus their year end wrap-up. They seem to have too much time on their hands and not enough to write about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmmmmm August 12, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
What is it with all these bad reviews? I was 50/50 on whether to order a subscription to motor trend or car and driver. So I looked at some of the past magazines I had recently purchased (In the last 3 months as of 08/12/10) from motor trend and from car and driver. I went with car and driver, they are better. I read articles over the new 2011 Cobra Mustang in a Car and driver and in the motor trend and it was so much better in car and driver. In car and driver they talked over (I never knew) the cobra mustang isn't great because alot of the weight is in the front of the car because of the engine, and not to mention its rear axle, so on. Motor tend is a great magazine i love it but im only choosing one, if i could get both i would.

Long time Car&Driver fans know this magazine has always provided easy intel to find on all featured vehicle. They do a nice job of covering auto's, pick 'em up trucks, suv's and sports car of every genre! Only bummer is you read each mag in a few hours. I pass mine on to my son who appreciates reading the mag!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Choice May 14, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I purchased this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it! He's always spitting out facts and having me read articles about upcoming projects in the car world. If your guy is into reading about technical stats, future plans, and looking at pictures of beautiful cars, this is the magazine for him!

Car and Driver is the magazine that I turn to when I want to know the real story behind a car. Some of their compeititor magazines, claim to be about cars, but then all I find inside are cars that I will never see in America and that I couldn't afford if I did find one.

Car and Driver was made to talk to the people of America who aspire to pay a lot of money to drive something that is better than our rusting Geo Metro's. Their pictures and poetic words tell stories of the better life. The life where we all drive 3-Series BMW's or where we take our Shelby Cobra's to the track for the weekend. Yet they also acknowledge and relate to the fact that most of us drive to and from work with a large number of french fries lying below our seats.

While this magazine might not be enough to defeat sharks with freaking lasers; I can promise you that it will be enough to make you an educated consumer and dreamer. You will learn to wait by the mail box eagerly awaiting your monthly fix like myself and every other happy subscriber.
