How TheCarXpert’s Was Founded
TheCarXpert was founded by Harold Morrison. A lifelong car lover, Harold was frustrated by the biased car care advice available online. While there’s plenty of great advice for classic car lovers with bottomless pockets, car owners on a budget love their vehicles too.
Harold started TheCarXpert with a mission to give all car owners an objective, unbiased resource that understands that every vehicle’s needs are different. So, he started TheCarXpert – to help all car lovers care for their vehicle, no matter their climate, budget or lifestyle. Today, TheCarXpert continues to act as an independent resource for car owners. We test and review a wide range of car care products – from the budget choices to the big brands.
What Products Do We Test?
We are committed to testing and reviewing a wide range of car care products – from Carnauba Wax to Car Batteries. We will review any product that is used in a car, both internally and externally. Products featured on our site come from major brands, niche brands and Amazon-only brands. All products featured in our reviews are available for purchase and can be found on Amazon.
When testing products, we are always careful to review a range of cheap, moderately priced and expensive products. While we are dedicated to representing a wide range of car care products, we cannot review every product on the market in our buying guides.

Our Product Review Process
When creating product reviews and buying guides, we follow a strict review writing process. All reviews are the opinion of our writers and car care experts. Before we start reviewing, we gather a list of all the products, sorting them by three main criteria. All products reviewed on our website are judged with this criterion, which includes including ‘Price’, ‘Type’ and ‘Works Best On’.
We do not state a product’s exact Recommended Retail Price (RRP), as these are subject to change at Amazon’s discretion. Instead, we use the following rating scale to evaluate price:
|Recommended Retail Price (RRP)||Symbol|
|$76 - 150 USD||$$|
|$151 - 220 USD||$$$|
All products we review have a ‘type’. The ‘type’ of product changes depending on the product we review. For example, car wax can either be a ‘Natural Car Wax’ or a ‘Synthetic Car Wax’. Type is used to make important distinctions between different sub-categories of products, as different types of products are suited to different uses.
Works Best On
The criteria ‘works best on’ is always the last criteria we include. This is designed to tell you what type of vehicle and climate the product functions best in. Car care products are environmentally subjective, as anything going into your vehicle is affected by how often you use your vehicle, the climate you live in and how frequently you perform car maintenance.
After we have ranked products by their main criteria, we use product reviews to discover what consumers are looking for when they buy a product. This gives us our review criteria, which changes depending on the product we are reviewing. For example, while ‘Warranty’ is an important criterion for batteries, it will not apply to all products (like car wax). Similarly, criteria like “Wax Type” does not apply to car batteries.
Once we have created review criteria, we systematically test and review each product. While many review websites give the products they review a rating, we do not do this at TheCarXpert. Instead, we believe that each product is suited to a different vehicle and a different car owner. While one product might be a 5/5 for a 4WD in Florida, it might be a 1/5 for a 2WD in Alaska.
