The Site

Thirteen years ago, a motoring columnist and former car trader saw that British car buyers desperately needed a special kind of website. Most car buyers simply wanted straight answers to direct questions about what is the best car and the best deal for them, written in a way they could clearly understand by someone they trust–Honest John.

Honest John.co.uk was born from the Honest John column in The Telegraph. It provides comprehensive, real time information on all aspects of motoring including Reviews, Real MPG, best deals and the Good Garage Guide.
