Honest John wins again


Honest John wins Best Motoring Website Award


HonestJohn.co.uk is the website that champions for fairness to car owners by publishing expert, unbiased information to help consumers make informed choices about their cars. The site has more than 2.0m unique visitors each month, and has just taken the award for Best Motoring Website for the second year running. Fighting off close competition from autocar.co.uk, the site was recognised by an independent panel of judges as the elite motoring website in the UK.

Presenting the award, the National Lottery’s Voice of the Balls, Alan Dedicoat, said: “For its peerless consumer advice and ability to entertain and inform, Honest John takes top honours again. With consumer-led campaigns such as Real MPG and its user-homepage initiatives, the site continues to be the go-to site for car buyers.”



HonestJohn.co.uk’s Editorial Director, Daniel Harrison, said: “We were bowled over when we won the Newspress Award for Best Motoring Website in 2016, so to make it a double is a real honour, and goes to show that our consumer-focused approached to automotive news, consumer campaigns and reviews, along with our desire to continually develop what we do with initiatives such as our user-homepages, is the perfect mix for cost-conscious motorists.

“Our approach to putting the consumer first, whether that’s around new or used car buying choices, or issues that affect motorists on a broader level, along with Honest John’s long established and award-winning advice columns, means we have the perfect platform to support motorists across the UK, and it’s both humbling and thrilling that the Newspress Awards judges have once again agreed we can’t be bettered.”

As well as the mainstream site at www.honestjohn.co.uk, Honest John has dedicated websites for vans and classic cars, each with the same consumer-focused approach to delivering content that delivers practical advice and engaging editorial.

Honest John will also be hosting its own motor industry awards, based on real world customer feedback – The Honest John Awards – which will take place in May.


In the meantime, why not get the lowdown on miserable motors from Honest John and George Fowler (the Daily Star's Motormouth)?

Automakers are as prone to turn out clunkers as politicians are to lie. Their cars may be ugly, misconceived, badly built, diabolical to drive, ridiculously thirsty, or just plain unreliable. So which were the worst of the past 20 years? Pickup this tome, packed full of dungers and clunkers, and find out.
