Mumsnet Cars is a few months shy of its first birthday, so in preparation for the big day we'd like to take this chance to look at how it works for you and find out what you think of it.
 
We'd like your opinions so we can make sure it does everything you want it to. So if you've ever used it - or didn't even know it was there - now's the time to take a look and let us know what you think of it.
 
All your thoughts would be really helpful, although it would be particularly useful to hear your opinions on any of the following:
 
Have you ever looked at Mumsnet Cars? Did you know it was there?
How easy is it to find the information you want on it?
What sort of information are you most likely to be looking for at Mumsnet Cars?
What do you think of both the range and quality of the content Mumsnet Cars currently has to offer (car reviews, used car valuations, news and advice)?
What are we missing?
 
Everyone who posts their comments below by 15 April 2013 will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a TomTom Via 135 Europe portable sat nav worth £150. This device covers the UK and the rest of Europe, and includes voice-control, Bluetooth connection for your mobile phone and TomTom's Lifetime Map update package, worth £80.

I am only interested in the car reviews. I love the idea of hearing mumsnetters' reviews as its a good fake counterpoint to top gear. At the moment there don't seem to be any mumsnet reviews of the cars I'm interested in though

I put a review of my car on in the very early days. I'd had my car for about a year, so it seemed a good time to do a pretty comprehensive review. I haven't looked at it since because we haven't changed cars. I had been planning to because DH applied for a job without a car (he has a company car at the moment) and would have needed to buy his own. He didn't get the job though.

Yes I looked at it when I was buying my last car. It was helpful!

How easy is it to find the information you want on it?
It's pretty easy - the search function is useful when you've spotted a car you like and want to see what other people think of it.

What sort of information are you most likely to be looking for at Mumsnet Cars?
Reviews from people who have owned them.

What do you think of both the range and quality of the content Mumsnet Cars currently has to offer (car reviews, used car valuations, news and advice)?
It could do with more info on older cars for those of us on a tight budget.

What are we missing? Nothing else I can think of
