Harris U.

Needs offline download and watching  Harris U.  3 star

I love MT and all the original content. I used to watch Ignition and Head to Head regularly in YT when I workout or when I have long flights. I actually subscribed and still continue to pay because I love the content and want to support MT. All that being said it’s been over a year since I’ve watched content because I still watch YT on offline mode in my use needs, but the app doesn’t support it. Despite loving the content, I’m actually considering ending my subscription because I haven’t watched in more than a year and it doesn’t seem like offline watching is on its way anytime soon.

Love it  mod driver  4 star

I love it works good while I am on the road just wish there was more episodes of the shows


Lots of great programming.  EXPIOWA  5 star

As promised, no adds on this side of the paywall. Come on in! I can not tell you how much I enjoy watching shows commercial free. I wish Counting Cars was a show option within the app. Still there is enough to see.

Great content for the enthusiast  LA G123  5 star

Love this app!


Nothing for cable subscribers  Chaos.Zero0  1 star

All of the Discovery channels used to have dedicated apps with provider sign in (DirecTV, cable, ect) so you could access all the shows you're already paying for anyways on demand. Well, the old Velocity GO app has been stripped of content and there is no provider sign in on this new MotorTrend app they're pushing. I get that the new app/service has original content not being broadcast on the channel, but way to break with the rest of your parent network and give paying subscribers nothing. I'm not paying anything extra for a channel I already pay for.


Everything’s locked?!?!  NoOneElseButMe  1 star

Not going to start a 14day free trial only to have it charge me after that. Waste of time.

Expense fanatic

Why would I?  Expense fanatic  1 star

Why should I pay for on line access when I can watch at no extra cost with my cable subscription? Forget it!

Southold massive

Right idea, wrong execution  Southold massive  2 star

Simply will not reliably cast to any television. Love the programming, hopefully the app catches up.

Mr.T money

2.6.2 update iPad Pro issue  Mr.T money  3 star

Watch everyday and love the content, latest update issue I’m having after playing shows is minimizing full screen. Maybe I’m missing something? Thanks for any help.

Thomas Scout 75

Must have for a car guy  Thomas Scout 75  5 star

“Don’t make it perfect, make it work”. Has motivated me to get my 75 scout back on the road and the trail. I have seen everything episodes of roadkill and RK garage (glad finnigan is back in more he has the best stories in the daily’s) hot rod, And DeD. I used to check Back at watch new material but now with all The additional, wheeler dealer, overhaul, ect there is something almost every day (excited for Top Gear) To Bring me back. Only recommendation from me not that it matters to anyone but me flip the archives from newest to oldest, have to scroll all the way Down to see if I missed one in the last month or so.


Great app  Unfixedcub727272  5 star

It’s like car show Netflix


Australia viewers beware  outaluck_  1 star

This is a great app if you just wanna watch roadkill as every other program isn’t allowed to be televised in Australia And maybe if motor trend had a better attitude about the inconvenience and changed the subscription charge to reflect what’s available So yeah pay to watch roadkill with motortred Or don’t and view it for free on YouTube 🤷🏻‍♂️


Great content  petedawi  5 star

App works well, casts to my chromecast. Some of the best content around. Forget about FOXTEL and it’s junk experience.


Content availability  craggy88  3 star

Very disappointing that not all content is available in Australia. But yes it is still $10 a month


Content is 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Beno76  3 star

Awesome content unfortunately the iPhone app doesn’t cast to Apple TV at the moment. Hopefully if that gets fixed happy to 5 Star the whole experience


Like it on my IPad but no TV option  Vintagetintrader  2 star

Wish I was able to stream onto other media sources as I do with YouTube, basically turning my IPad into a big remote to view on the TV.

Kobus Jooste

Can Be Much Better  Kobus Jooste  2 star

Shows aren’t updated on a timely basis. No option to download to device and watch offline. Discovery shows like Street Outlaws not available on Motortrend.


Users outside of the USA beware of geo-blocking  54F100  2 star

In Australia most programs are blocked and the ones that you want to watch need to have an excellent internet speed. Anything else and all the app will do is crash or pause every 2 seconds. Subscription fees should reflect what the user receives. A charge for watching the motor-trend originals and another for those who can actually watch the rest of the discovery channel Drivel.


No longer works on iPad mini  MCarlill  1 star

Latest update no longer works on iPad mini. Opens and shuts immediately. Always a battle for this app to work correctly. Time to uninstall, cancel subscription and find a youtube channel with better content.


Horrible app for chrome cast  Flexyspex  2 star

This app is the worst streaming app I’ve ever used with Chromecast. The stream should not restart whenever the app is opened. Also, if in Australia, the promised content is mostly not available.


Canceled subscription  itlledoo  1 star

App updated and now won’t play any videos. I get booted out as soon as I try to play a video. Tried to get help from customer service and no resolution. So I canceled. I hope they get the issue fixed


App.  marcnova40  1 star

Most of what is seen of this app is showing you how to do stuff. The app needs a forward and rewind feature. Plus a 15 seconds rewind feature as well.

Voodoo steve

I’m done!  Voodoo steve  1 star

Guess it’s time to give Motortrend the boot..... paid my money.... then they rescinded my subscription all of a sudden, still had my account, but everything I paid for is locked up...... no refunds either.... what a scam!!


Just another junk app  2babiesdaddy  1 star

I’ve had this app for maybe a month or two waiting for some good show for free to go up but NO if you don’t have the 5 bucks a month or like me and you are 14 and don’t have money for the “premium “ version then it’s not worth it.It gives you 3 or 4 free shows a day that is all.ALL YOU GUYS WANT IS MONEY BY FAR THE WORST APP. I can get a different app that has better shows and it is totally free. At least give more free shows. Until then I won’t use your app.


I used to love this app!  bctech  1 star

I used to love this app! You used to be able to watch MT originals, although not the newest releases, even though you didn’t have the over priced upgrade to premium! Every time it has updates it has taken away shows!! Typical bait and switchery here! The way they get you is you have to pay for the premium package to see any shows now because they don’t even show the new ones on the MT channel now! Definitely don’t recommend since they are going the direction of over charging for these shows!!


The shows are amazing, but I can't seem to watch anything for free anymore  mauricemonge  3 star

MotorTrend is putting out amazing, quality content. Even my engine builder watches every episode of engine masters. If you have the time to watch regularly, then a subscription is no biggie. I don't have time to watch more than a handful of episodes a month, so I just browse occasionally. I hadn't been on the app for a few months and when I came back, almost everything is locked. Some shows don't even have a single free episodes to persuade you to sign up. I know beggars can't be choosers, but I can't even watch anything to see if I'd be interested in it. it use to be "watch 12 weeks ahead of time" when you signed up for a subscription, but even those shows were never free to watch on the app. Again, the content is incredible. But there's no use in having the app if I can't watch an episode or two. Maybe the commercials and sponsors of each show - there seem to be plenty - aren't paying to create the content and they need subscribers to stay alive.


Great app but...  BornBalin  4 star

Overall the app is great except for one thing. I run into one video every now and then that says playback error and I can not watch it. Such as the do roller rocker arms add horsepower episode of engine masters. Every update I hope that it gets fixed but it hasn’t. Please fix. Other then that the app is exceptional.

Awesome app  gmc general  5 star

Worth the money Great shows been watching road kill since the van and wagon episode came out 👍👍

Ryan tha zombie

Crap  Ryan tha zombie  2 star

App itself is ok but you need to buy premium version to watch just about anything. It’s funny how none of the stuff is on-demand now that there is this trash app.


Great stuff  billybob4999  5 star
