Default Other popular auto websites you visit?

Autoblog used to be my go to for auto news; however they've done a significant change to their website that is quite honestly, brutal. So, I'm looking for other sites that have good news / reviews / updates? Any suggestions?

I agree re: Autoblog. I used to visit it regularly but I despise their redesign.

I routinely visit Carscoops and Motor1 (formerly WCF).

[Also Burlapp...but that's not so much for news, more for some comic relief in comparison to the more professional sites]

CSS is more "homey" probably because it is just the six of us chatting. LeftLane is OK but essentially boring. Allpar is a hoot but it's just for deluded Mopar fans. The magazines have fairly good discussion.

I've been enjoying Jalopnik recently. Agree about Autoblog. I like Motor 1 too. I am on FitFreaks a lot because I own one (and love it), but that's make specific..

Ditto in regards to Autoblog. Was fine a few months back, but every re-design is getting more busy and worse performing on my mobile (Android, Chrome). Way to ruin a good website.

I lurk here daily and enjoy being here because it's cosy. I don't always contribute a lot, but to me this place is like sitting on a comfy chesterfield sofa, whiskey in hand, observing other people having thoughtful discussions and occasional squabbles

Jalopnik is alright (I enjoy Foxtrot Alpha), but a bit too yank-centred.

@Reppu: Motorpasion looks great, one more reason for me to learn Spanish! If only I had the time...

The only bookmarked sites are generally overseas auto magazine sites. The autoblog/jalopnik sites long changed their focus and lost my interest.

I actually sent them a note - the site is brutal now. They had a link on their page where it only showed part of the paragraph, and the link was to advise of the changes on the site (they're constantly updating it to reflect consumer feedback) - and when you click on the link to expand the paragraph - it automatically links back to the main site of the page...just sloppy. They never responded....

I don't have a problem w/ Vinces site - beyond the horrendous grammar / spelling. It is what he wants it to be - a place where people send pictures of reported new cars coming. Fine.

I've started visiting Motor1 / Carscoops - both are good. Thanks!

ps - CSS is still my favorite site :)
