2009 Holden Commodore International review

I am suitably impressed by the stylish and spirited features of the Omega International. Its leather seats and well-appointed instruments provide an executive experience from the moment you land in the driver's seat and turn the key. Touch the accelerator and the car launches forward not even hesitating as it climbs seamlessly though the gears, attaining a crushing speed if 100kms in no time at all...

2016 Holden Commodore SS Black Edition review

I purchased a 2016 manual SS Black edition commodore in September 2016, and have owned it for just 6 weeks. With Holden shutting the doors for manufacturing in Australia soon, I couldn't help but feel like I would be missing out one of the best cars Australia has ever made had I decided against purchasing the Commodore...

2016 Holden Captiva 5 LS (FWD) Review

We shopped the entry-model Captiva against the entry-model Hyundai Tucson. The interior of the Captiva seemed more upmarket, the size was bigger and the price was about $4000 cheaper. We were impressed with the economy of such a large car when using regular petrol and liked that it was smooth and quiet...

2010 Holden Commodore S Review

Before I dwelve into his review, I think it may be necessary to disclose a few items: 1) I am a self-confessed nut on all things Commodore related; 2) I'm not a middle aged gentleman with 3 kids, instead a 23 year old wagonista; and 3) I have been longing for a VE since my 13 year old self watched via simulcast the Ignition SSV roll down the catwalk at the Melbourne Convention Centre one rainy Sunday morning in July 2016 (even got a bit tearful)...

2014 Holden Captiva 7 Lt (AWD) Review

I am the lucky recipient of a 2014 Holden Captiva LT 2.2 diesel. Spoiler alert it's a company car. It's got 30,000km-ish on it. As a company car it's great, it does everything it needs to do (plus I get a new one next year, nice huh?) however would I part with my own money for it? Let's find out. The good bits...

2013 Holden Volt Hybrid Review

I've owned my Volt for the past 7 months and have only been to the petrol station twice !!! It drives fantastic and is saving me a fortune in fuel. I was spending $800 a month running 2 cars, now our main car is a Volt and our second car is a Prius. The Volt is incredibly smooth to drive and has great acceleration with low down torque...

2016 Holden Colorado LTZ (4x4) Review

**DISCLAIMER - This is not my car, but is owned by my father. I have driven it quite a few times while at home on holidays without my car, these are my experiences** I've always had and driven small cars and performance sedans, like my old tuned Audi A4 and my current Fiesta ST so getting in a car that's almost as big as a house was a little disconcerting, especially when backing out of the driveway without using my trusty rear camera in the Fiesta...

2016 Holden Captiva 7 LTZ (AWD) Review

I traded my 2012 Prado on a new Captiva LTZ 2.2 diesel and I am glad I did. This SUV has way more gadgets than a $65 grand Prado has, it drives great, has heaps of grunt and fuel economy is around the same if not better. It also can tow the same and we only paid 38k. I think GM has got it right with this new model finally...

2014 Holden Calais V Review

I've owned my 2014 Calais V for 6 months now. I have to say I love it. I was debating with my wife about what car we should buy and we narrowed it down to a Honda Accord, VW Passat Highline, and a Mazda 6. A little about my experience with the Calais so far: It has a real road presence with its classy and sporty look sitting on 19" wheels...

2010 Holden Epica CDX Review

  I've owned my Epica for 6 years and it has done 65,000kms from new and have enjoyed trouble-free motoring. The car has been 100% reliable, starting first time every time. The only issue was the early recall to replace the fuel hose (no cost to me). I've just had the 6-year major service carried out with new front brakes (which is not bad for 64,000kms!), and still plenty on the rear brakes...

2016 Holden Captiva 7 Ltz (AWD) Review

I don't know what Captiva you tested, but its nothing like mine. I have a 2016 Jan build LTZ. Noisy diesel engine? It's noisy on start up but it's quieter than I thought it would be on idl. Inside I cannot hear it, wind the windows down and it purrs. Economy? I am getting 8.9l 100kms. It has more than enough power...
