CAR Archive help and FAQ

Published: 15 July 2016

Frequently asked questions

What is the CAR Archive?

CAR Archive does what it says on the tin, letting you read the best bits from the CAR magazine archive stretching all the way back to 1962 on your computer, smartphone or tablet. It was previously called CAR+

I was previously a subscriber to CAR+, what's changed?

We have lifted the paywall to increase user numbers. We're contacting subscribers to CAR+ separately to explain what this means.

Where is the current issue of CAR magazine?

From the July 2016 issue onwards, CAR+ was refocused on archive content only. We no longer publish the current edition in full in the CAR Archive but you can still enjoy it in print and our various tablet editions (full details here).

Can I access this content on my smartphone or my tablet?

Yes. The CAR Archive is integrated in the main website, which is responsive. All content is resized to work on any screen, from smartphone all the way up to widescreen TV.

How do I cancel my subscription to CAR+?

You don't need to do anything. We are contacting all subscribers individually.

I still can’t find the information I’m looking for…
