Published 03 June 2014

Every month we give away a prize to the reader who submits the best owner review. Over the course of May we had scores of readers write to praise – or criticise – their own cars. We’ve read through all of the May reviews and picked out the best five. The best of the lot for May 2014 wins an iPad Mini.

For the best reader review in June we're giving away another iPad Mini, so if you want to be in with a chance of winning head to the owners review section and submit yours now.

Austin A40 Farina, by Richard BMW

Owner’s reviews aren’t restricted to the new and modern cars – readers can also review their classic models or commercial vehicles. Richard BMW has owned his Austin A40 Farina from new, way back in 1964.

Since then he has covered more than 200,000 miles and says “I have been very happy with the car, but believe it is only with much hard work that it remains on the road today.”

Parkton says: “So far its been a pleasure to drive and I particularly like the high driving position… and the versatile 'Magic' seat system.”
