MOTOR Magazine

MOTOR Magazine is a monthly trade publication that provides clear, specific, objective information to help service outlets efficiently complete motor vehicle repairs, while simultaneously operating successful businesses.

MOTOR was founded by William Randolph Hearst in 1903, the same year the automotive industry truly began. After nearly a century of growth, today's MOTOR Information Systems is the most complete source of service and repair information for the automotive aftermarket.

MOTOR – The name technicians and shop owners know and trust.
