Our Mission

icon 512

Auto Chimps was founded due to the huge amount of misinformation out there in the automotive industry. This is because there are not many journalists out there with extensive knowledge about cars, motorcycles, and the like so the content out there ends up being very unreliable and sometimes outright false.

We want to change that. Auto Chimps is part of a larger network where the core goal is to provide the best possible value for the user. We want to give you 100% reliable and trustworthy tips and guides.

A lot of the content out there is written by content farms and by people with no real expertise. That results in content only written for search engines and not real people.

Our aim is to satisfy the user’s intent for each article we produce. Each article and video is vetted by two people at least, and we have robust guidelines in place to ensure each and every article is top-notch and useful for the user.

All of our articles are free to read and use. If you find it good, please share it to spread the word about Auto Chimps.

All prices listed on this site are in United States dollars.
