    Of course not. Just research a bit and make your unique articles. That's all.

    You could always review untested products but your review will reflect that fact and will have no value to the reader.

    I'm certain you'll find that a vast number of online reviewers have never even laid eyes on the stuff they're reviewing. It's not just online either. I know a guy who used to write theatre reviews of Edinburgh Fringe shows he hadn't even bothered to see, for "The Scotsman", no less (Scotland's most respected newspaper). He just used to randomly toss a coin to decide whether to give a good or bad review, and then he'd just make stuff up - usually whilst drunk.

    But returning to the topic of your car review site... Yes, I'm pretty sure you could get away with creating reviews by stitching together a patchwork of other people's opinions. Some might consider it a little unethical, but in the grand scheme of things it's not exactly the crime of the century, is it? There are far more morally questionable things going on all over the internet.

    Take Clickbank review sites, for instance. I'd consider a lot of those to be a LOT more unethical. I'd be willing to bet that 80% of all the review sites claiming to have "personally used this ebook with tremendous success" are talking out of their posteriors... ESPECIALLY when it comes to the Internet Marketing titles. People will endorse ANYTHING if they think there's a quick buck in it.

    At least with a phoney car review, you know that whatever poor sap BUYS the damn thing will end up with a driveable vehicle at the end of the process. The same can't be said of a lot of other online merchandise!
