So, how did I become the Test Drive Blogger? A few weeks ago, I was having dinner with my very good friend and founder of eCarOne and as usual we were talking cars. Although I am not in the car business, I have loved cars since I could talk. We usually toss ideas around and this time I think we came up with something that could be very useful for many perspective buyers out there. Currently, there are many websites that offer new and used car reviews but none to knowledge offer these reviews based on actual ownership experience. As a perspective buyer, your only option of researching a particular make or model is to scour the internet and perhaps visit car-specific forums that discuss the ownership experience.
We thought that since I love cars and I go through them more frequently than most people go through shoes, it may be a good idea for us to capitalize on my tendency to get board with whatever car I own. As such, I will be taking a car from eCarOne each week and using it as my daily driver. After my week is over, I will post my impression… not an objective test drive but rather a commentary of what it’s actually like to own the car for a full week. Some of my posts will be informative, some advisory, some purely commentary and of course some you may find useless.
In any case, I will do my best to bring a fresh perspective with each post and as we build a database of various cars, I believe we can start to really have fun. I hope you enjoy reading and I welcome any questions and comments going forward. Thank you and happy driving.
