A couple of months ago, I proudly reported that Ben had passed his driving test at his very first attempt. I was so excited for him and loved the thought of finally being independent. We soon got a car, Ben knew exactly what he wanted and had been doing his research ever since he had started doing his driving lessons, and now he wants me to learn driving. What is this man thinking?
The only skill I have when it comes to driving is being able to tell right from left. I can’t even imagine having to steer a car and change gears at the same time. I know women are supposed to be amazing at multi-tasking and believe me in all other parts of live I am mediocre to genius, but hand-eye-coordination is really not one of my strengths.
What I am really looking forward to is picking my own car though. It’s a bit like buying your own house, something really grown up and quite an important step for me, because it will allow me to go shopping whenever I want – ehm be more independent, I mean. I don’t know too much about cars and I don’t want to do the typical women thing of going by colour and looks. I really want to know the ins and out of the car I will be driving.
Obviously, I’m not a mechanic, so I won’t understand anything too technical, but I do find it important to be able to get an unbiased review and read what other drivers think about their cars – the good and the bad. Someone who is already helping consumers find their perfect car is Korean automobile manufacturer Kia. By teaming up with Reevoo and providing independently verified customer reviews, Kia are making the process of buying a car based on an independent review much easier for car seekers up and down the country.
So what does this mean for me? Whenever I go onto Kia’s website and read a review, I now know that these reviews have been written by true customers, people like you and me, people who drive their car to work every day, people who go on holiday with it and people who also have toddlers sitting in the back who love nothing more than smearing ice-cream into the seats. I don’t know about you, but I find this really reassuring! If you drive a Kia or are looking into getting one, do make sure to check out Kia’s website or pop on there to leave your review. You might help someone find their dream car! It might even be me!?
What do you find important in a review? Have you ever written a customer review yourself and do you think all companies should be obliged to have their reviews verified by an independent body?
