If you’re after car makeovers, a quality team with family values, and insight into the car work, Car Masters: Rust to Riches will be a fantastic watch. While the fourth season doesn’t exactly add anything from its previous three seasons, it’s still great to watch!

Netflix reality series Car Masters: Rust to Riches season 4 was released on the streaming service on July 27, 2022.

If you’ve watched the last three seasons of Car Masters: Rust to Riches, you’ll know what to expect. And like the previous three seasons, the fourth season has eight episodes. But are the episodes worth watching?

Yes, for sure. Much like Ready Steady Cut said about Season 3, Car Masters: Rust to Riches has the energy of an endless reality show“. And that remains throughout the fourth season. Big characters? Yes. Big car makeovers? Yes. Drama? Yes. The stakes are immediately high. In the first episode, the team have to use forty grand to turn an old and haggard Elite Laser 917 into something that’s back in its prime. But as hard-core viewers will know, and if you don’t, the first episode makes it clear that Mark is not exactly fond of working with high-end clients. 

Car Masters: Rust to Riches feels like a bit of a niche show, to be honest. There aren’t many shows that feature characters and scenes like those featured not only in this season but the previous three. Whilst, like previously said, there is heaps of potential drama in the show, you won’t find many scenes of arguments, screaming matches, and fights. Instead, the team seem to get on fairly well. The drama comes from other means, such as extreme makeover demands, customers not offering a large enough budget, time restrictions, and more.

Furthermore, the only critique for the show comes from the season finale. This is because the stakes don’t feel that high. And after seven episodes, you kinda want something massive to be happening/at risk. But what actually occurs is an episode that’s fairly similar to the episodes before it. And that’s not overly negative, as the episodes of Car Masters: Rust to Riches are great; I just want more.

The final thing to say is to check Car Masters: Rust to Riches Season 4 out! It’s not a long watch (most episodes are around the 35-minute mark), and due to the nature of the show, you won’t need to concentrate heavily to follow the flow of the show.
