The next-generation Nissan Z-car could well be a performance-oriented crossover vehicle, if reports out of England are to be believed. An inside source has told Autocar that the new Nissan Z-car will be a small, sporty crossover vehicle around the size of current Juke...

Australia doesn’t love utes – it loves pick-up trucks

I call a ute a ute. I don’t call it a pick-up. I don’t call it a truck (although I like the macho nature of the word truck). It’s clear, however, that the word 'ute' is being phased out of car company marketing chit-chat, and it could well be that buyers are following the same path...

2015 Nissan X-trail Ts (FWD) Review

Bought this car new from Thompson Motors Sepparton and has been of the road more than on. The car accalerates out of control and the cruise control only works when it feels like it. Car is in Dealership now awaiting a new computor. The list of faults just keeps growing would never recomend buying one of these lemons. Nissan is aware of the problems and don't care...

I love the Tiida's hatchback curves and design. The back windows also have a nice curved edge along the top...

2012 Nissan Almera St Review

The Nissan Almera is a great vehicle for a first car buyer or for someone who needs a car mainly for city commuting. The Almera is reasonable on fuel and the steering is light which makes parking a breeze. Bluetooth is also available so that means no more reaching for your phone to pickup a call however from my experience the bluetooth is very basic and it can be difficult to synchronise your contacts over to the car...

Just back from 12500 klms to far north west driving 3 litre direct injection auto patrol towing 2 ton offroad caravan.Had a few small issues(broken exhaust bracket/winch brackets broken/spotlight coming off)note these were all after market products.
