ELATED PETROL HEAD: Wheels24's latest reader's test winner shows off his prize.

Wheels24’s Readers' Test competition is back and you'll again have the chance to choose your favourite, as our latest winner, Theo Kruger, found. Better yet, send us a review of your own!

Kruger’s review of his mom’s Mazda CX-7 was voted tops by Wheels24 readers and Kruger walks off with a Garmin satnav unit for his efforts.

Kruger (33) from Carletonville in Gauteng, tells us he left the world of advertising to take up a position in the family engineering business but when he’s not planning and purchasing materials, he’s reading about cars – and took the time to tell us more about his latest family favourite.


You, like Kruger, could be a winner in our current round of reader reviews (ending August 31, 2012) and stand a chance to win a Garmin satnav unit after voting by Wheels24 readers.

All you need to do is send an original review of your car or motorcycle of no more than 500 words, plus one or two pictures (as separate JPGs) to feedback@wheels24.co.za and if it's good enough we’ll give you a spot.

Easy, right? So, get cracking!
