  • About Us

    Samarins.com evolved from a personal blog to a popular online resource for used car buyers and owners. We know cars from the inside out, so you may find some of our articles are written from a more technical point of view. When we review cars, we not only test the features and see how they drive, we look deeper. We check mechanical features, research common problems and in some cases even speak to mechanics who work on these cars.
    Our site is mobile-friendly, so you can visit it from your phone. We appreciate any feedback you have.
