2015 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350d review

I cross-shopped the whole range of mid to large SUVs before opting for the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350d. I am in my sixties and I do zero off-road driving. The Merc was purchased for ride height and safety features. My driving is mainly in Queensland and good ride height is vital when roads can become flooded in an instant...

2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid review

The year 2011. I was looking for a very fuel efficient, reliable and cheap to maintain family car to replace my humble Hyundai Excel that had serviced our family needs for sometime. There were two options on my shortlist – the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Honda Civic Hybrid. I discarded all of the other options (including my then, and still favourite, Holden Commodore)...

2014 Porsche Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition review

Porsche Cayenne, what a great car! It does the job, with excellent fuel economy and it's extremely comfortable with the 18-way adjustable seats. The car is both admirable and gorgeous and turns a lot of heads, thanks to the combination of a black exterior with a white interior, and those black 21-inch wheels set off by the red brake calipers...

2008 BMW 335i review

This is my BMW E92 335i M Sport Coupe with M6 wheels and M division suspension and brakes. Firstly, from the new generation BMWs, I was always in love with the E92 coupe styling, from the moment they arrived. The sharp body line and wedge-like shape, and especially the additions BMW added to the M3 platform...

2017 Volkswagen Amarok V6 TDI550 Highline review

Our family have been dedicated users of the popular T/tough luxury utilities for many years, but I wanted a change, so I tried an Amarok Core Plus – loved the driving finesse, eight-speed gearbox, reliability and economy. Towing accounts for around 50 per cent of our driving so, after logging many kilometres in the Core Plus, went looking for more power...

2009 BMW M3 review

M3 drivers have no friends." – Jeremy Clarkson "[The] M3 is one of the most perfectly balanced machines ever created by man." – also Jeremy Clarkson It was the same old story, told many times before...

2012 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2.0 JTD-M review

At the beginning of 2017, I was in the market for a more modern car to replace my 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero. I do a lot of kilometres each year, so I was looking for a car with relatively low kms on the do that would have excellent fuel economy, would be sporty and be a head-turner. With a budget of under $20,000, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta fit the bill...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX review

As a 13-year-old car fanatic, the concept of writing a car review and publishing it on the Internet was never one that really crossed my mind. I read CarAdvice news and reviews daily, and even write for my own personal blog – but that's nothing like writing my own reviews...

2016 Ford Focus RS review

I’ve had my Focus RS for a little over a year now, during which time I've covered 22,000km, so I figured I may as well share a few of my experiences with the car. There’s been plenty said about what they’re like at full noise, but what are they like to live with? I ordered the car sight unseen back in January 2016, after the first lot of five-star reviews started dropping...

2017 BMW M140i review

On 27 May 2005, beside a roaring log fire at Darley’s Restaurant, my then fiancé took one sip of the 1976 Grange I had splashed out on for our engagement dinner and immediately announced to the waiter and myself, “Oh wow, that’s lovely, you have the rest darling”. It was as if she was reading from a script and I had written it...

2013 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo review

Let's start off with the fun part. This car is fast. Real world fast. Sure, many a car (including Holden's SS Ute) would do better on a race track but I do not use a race track every day. This has by far more power and speed than anyone truly needs, but... I bought the car as I came into position to purchase a fun car...

1994 Mercedes-Benz S320 review

Released in 1992, the Mercedes-Benz S Class could arguably be one of the last cars built to the 'the best or nothing' motto. The sheer presence, vault-like build quality and incredible attention to detail command it to being a car almost like no other. It was referred to as 'the cathedral on wheels' when it first came out by the press – a result of the US$1 billion development costs that changed the automotive landscape...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 110 TSI Comfortline review

I have been born with a curse. It's a curse that makes any car trip to the supermarket an episode of mild annoyance. Having always been an owner of a compact or small car, it could be argued I brought this curse upon myself – and this could be a rational explanation – however, being an adult today means my curse is everyone else's fault, or indeed a problem with society at large...

2015 Hyundai Sonata Active review

I have driven Alfa Romeos for at least the last 10 years and I love them. There is a magical quality about them but they are also flawed in some ways. Recently, my wife had an operation and spent a week in hospital. The journey home was excruciating for her when I picked her up in my pride and joy with 19-inch low profile wheels and rock hard suspension...

2013 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Distinctive review

After over four years of ownership with "G" – Giulietta just doesn't roll of the tongue – I have mixed, but mostly positive, feelings towards one of the most reliable car Alfa's ever produced (up to this point). The Distinctive model was one rung below the proper top of the line hot hatch QV, so with 125kW it wasn't short of power...
