I do watch their videos, but they're okay. They rarely have any negative things to say in their reviews. I just watch for the content and to view the vehicle.

I have OCD with long term items I buy. The little details can bother me big time. I like knowing the negatives in a car review.

I prefer Redline Reviews, Alex on Autos, Throttle House and savagegeese.

They seem to like N even better than R.

I watch these guys occasionally. My favorite reviewers are Redline Reviews, Alex on Autos and Chris Harris.

I enjoy their channel. They have a youthful enthusiasm and their videos are fun to watch (plus as a fellow CDN, it's nice to see them create a following).

I would say they are very light on their critiques for the most part, and their focus on certain things is a bit odd, specifically their insistence on the sun visor, and rewinding satellite radio thing. However, their banter is neat and their production values in terms of videography and editing is quite good. You can tell they put in some decent effort in every video.

That said, as others have mentioned, I would not watch them for a fully objective or critical reviews, but as a general preview of a particular car, than sure.

This mirrors my thoughts on their channel as well. I actually live in their area and made it to a meet up which was fun to see all the nice rides that showed up. They are more for basic entertainment and good production for me. Sometimes their banter is annoying but overall I enjoy their content. I go to other channels for reviews when I need more specifics or detailed impressions.

I thoroughly enjoy them. Very entertaining and I find them funny. Conversely, I find the Fast Lane Guys quite annoying, although they seem to have reviews on the latest stuff.
