2015 Citroen Ds5 Dsport HDi Review

To date, I have owned a fleet of Saab's, one Rolls Royce and one BMW M3. Just recently, I traded my last Saab convertible for the DS5 finished in pearlescent white. Handling is flat like an f1 car. You feel totally in control. The cockpit is fully loaded with lots of toys which make you feel like you're on final approach and the runway is in sight...

2016 Subaru XV 2.0i-S Review

This is a perfect car for singles or couples as it is stylish and fun to drive. The technology provides tons of information at your fingertips and the main multi functional screen is easy to use. The bluetooth has great connectivity and the ability to stream music from your iPhone or device is also a joy. Fuel economy is great averaging around 7...

2008 Mazda 2 Genki Review

Oh yes, the Mazda 2. First things first, the model I selected isn't correct, since Finland has completely different versions. As me and my wife needed a second car, we thought it has to be cheap. So, 5000 Euros later, we got the Mazda. And we didn't even drive anything else. It was so good...

2008 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo Review

I thought I'd write a review on this car seeing as I've just sold it after 3 years of trouble free ownership. I purchased it 3 years ago and it was the best car I've ever owned. Beautiful to drive in all conditions (despite the lack of cruise), 100% reliable and cheap to run considering it's a European hot hatch. The best thing about this car was the engine, it's brilliant...

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...

2009 Volkswagen Tiguan 125 TSI Review

The Tiguan is a joy to drive. The Tiguan has been good to own, mostly. With a turbocharged 2.0 engine mated to a 6-speed torque-converter transmission, the car accelerates keenly with a silky-smooth urgency. We struggle to hear or feel the car changing gear in either direction. In fact the car's mechanicals generally feel a class above some of its competitors...

2009 Ford Fpv F6 Review

I have owned around 20 cars in 4 years including three FG XR6 Turbo's. The FG F6 is the most amazing and reliable car I have owned, the power is ridiculous and the comfort comparing this to say a VE Clubsport it smashes it out of the park; faster, better on fuel, better sound system, lighter and one of the best parts about the F6 are the seats...

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...

2012 Kia Grand Carnival Platinum Review

Bought a 4 year old Platinum, well appointed, low kms, and we love it. Took about a week for my wife to get comfortable. Family drives are much more pleasant now with 2 13 yr old boys and 10 yr old daughter. 2 in the middle, one up back seems to be the preferred option - no more elbow fighting. All rows able to recline and with adjustable head rests is great...

2015 Ford Fiesta St Review

This is my second review of this car, the first being not too long after I bought it. This one is being written without the rose coloured specs and long after the honeymoon period is gone. This is my experience with the car just a tad over a year down the track... To be completely frank, not a great deal has changed...

2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Sports (4x4) Review

Wanting to get into a little bit of off-roading, I looked into what was available that at least had low range 4x4. With a price range of less than $5K I couldn't really afford the typical options like a Prado or Patrol or the 4 door utes like a Ranger or HiLux. I didn't particularly want something too old or with excessively high kilometres either...

2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Exclusive 1.2i Puretech Review

I first came across the Citroen C4 Cactus in 2013 online and about the possibly of the car going into production. Being a Citroen fan for many years I knew I wanted it from the get go. I managed to get a first glimpse at it at the 2014 Geneva motor show and again at the 2015 Paris motor show, I knew I wanted it but the question was when...

2013 Audi A1 Sportback 1.4 TFSI Sport Review

Fast, Fuel Efficient, Cheap. Normally you have to pick two. Fortunately, that is not the case with the Audi A1 Sport(if you buy second hand). The 1.4 Twin Charged engine, coupled with the 7 speed twin-clutch VW-AG S-tronic gearbox is an amazing little package that fits perfectly with the little A1. It is a shame that they have phased it out and now replaced this engine with the 1...

2016 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

Having this vehicle for one day as a loan car, it impressed myself to a degree where I have to share my thoughts on it. For such a small engine with a 129KW, the 2.5L 4 Cylinder gets the car moving and isn't much of a slouch despite the CVT transmission. The CVT does affect the quality of the drive being a bit jerky and delayed acceleration...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) Review

I have had my 2016 HiLux for over a month and I do like it. I tow a 1.7 tonne trailer most of the time and it handles great. The power, the steering and the breaks are great and such a nice ride. Like the old HiLux it has lots of drink holders, which is a big tick for me but not much cabin storage like behind the rear seats, this needs to change...
