Score Card

Motor Trend is a Niche Review site founded in 1949 that’s based in El Segundo, California. They earned an average Trust Score of 28% for 2 categories out of 15 we evaluated. Consequently, their product reviews are not trusted when it comes to reliability.

Their categories feature mentions of the reviewer using the products along with some category-specific test methodologies. However, most of their categories lack real world photos and quantitative test results. For their general content, they provide some foundational details like an About Us page, privacy policy, and scoring system, but also lack others like an ethics statement and feature comparison tables. They make their money off affiliate programs, ads, selling products, and sponsored posts..
