The Common Driver
Internet Magazine provides the only
perspective that matters for all your driving needs.
What we are
CommonDriver.com is not a group of trophy bearing, racing license carrying, fire suit wearing,
retired racecar drivers. Like other popular automotive magazines, we passionately love cars, trucks, and
SUVs. But unlike those older publications, our young staff better represents
tomorrow's generation of automotive enthusiasts.
CommonDriver.com does not primarily focus on "lottery-winner-only" vehicles.
We understand that everyone enjoys dreaming about wealth, but most of us still find ourselves behind the wheels of
CommonDriver.com does not provide unwanted information. For example, most young
American consumers want details on how well a vehicle rides, drives and accelerates
rather than its maximum G-force cornering potential.
CommonDriver.com performs the majority
of our road tests just like you do; on the street. We love racing cars, but like you, we don't drive
racecars to work. Unlike other magazines, we're not as concerned with how vehicles perform on the racetrack, but rather how well they perform under real world driving
conditions encountered during the daily commute.
CommonDriver.com believes that we very accurately represent the preferences of
young Americans on automotive
& transportation design, sales predictions, and views of the general public
CommonDriver.com is committed to pleasing our subscribers. If you want to see it,
please ask for it. We highly regard your opinions as we continually seek to improve The Common Driver Automotive Internet Magazine.
Unlike other leading automotive magazines that send you a copy of their
publication every 30 days,
CommonDriver.com typically publishes new articles in our e-magazine every day, and it's just a mouse click away.
Not only that, but our road tests and reviews offer significantly more
photographs than other magazines. The current average number of photos per
article is 18. Plus, the vast majority of our photography is our original
material. Most other magazines rely heavily on manufacturer-provided
photography that has been digitally mastered to make the vehicles look more
appealing. To further enhance your browsing experience, several of our
publications contain downloadable
video within the article. In fact, our magazine offers many different
features. You may:
- Download video from various CommonDriver road tests
and reviews (56K or faster recommended)

Road Test Team

The Common Driver.com offers a unique perspective when driving and evaluating vehicles. Our
test drivers / journalists are not
career racers like so many other automotive magazines. But we believe this is one of our
strengths. We think that you will be able to distinctly identify with our
real-world, cutting-edge perspective
when reading our road tests, reviews and feature articles.
The Common Driver Automotive Internet Magazine is updated every day at 12:00 A.M. Central Standard
Time, and various times throughout the day.
Research indicates that more than 77% of annual vehicle sales in America involves used vehicles. Interestingly, nearly all forms of
the automotive media feature only brand new vehicles.
CommonDriver.com seeks to capitalize on that market by offering road tests and reviews on both new
and used vehicles. It's
fun to evaluate how well vehicles perform when they're brand new, but what's
that vehicle like after 35,000
miles of use?
CommonDriver.com is easily your best media source for used vehicle road tests.
