In addition, public discussion via related Forum Posts are tagged to each article, making this part of the site highly interactive and informative.

In addition to our own articles, keep your eye out for some fantastic new car reviews provided by CarAdvice. The reviews are available from image links you'll see towards the bottom of the Forum, and articles in the Vehicle section. When you click the images the review will open in a new browser tab so you'll still have the ExplorOz page accessible so you won't lose your place.
