2014 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

I've owned my Soul Red Mazda 3 SP25 Auto Sedan for 3 months and have covered almost 4000kms. So far the ownership experience has been mostly positive with a few niggling issues that I hope will be ironed out. I selected the 2.5L 138kW over the 2L 114kW because it transforms the car. I originally anticipated buying the Maxx however, despite several test drives was left very underwhelmed by the performance...

2013 Fiat 500 POP Review

Ok, let’s be clear. I love this car. And like anyone that writes a review of something they have forked out their hard earned for, a sense of bias will always shine through. With that in mind, I will try and be as honest and impartial as I can. I bought my Fiat 500C Pop brand new in October 2013...

2013 Volkswagen Passat 118 TSI Review

Reliability has been outstanding with no breakdowns or difficulties starting. Servicing cost at VW disappointingly expensive. Although it is capped the cap increased by the first service. Other mechanics service companies charge far less than VW for a logbook service even when it is only an oil change with safety check...

2013 Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Amb Review

This top of the line A3 series model comes with 1.8 engine but it was the best compromise, not too powerful for my wife and not too weak for me. Still it does 0 to 100 km/h under seven seconds as promised. When I retired our point was that the number of driving wheels must stay at four though we don’t need two cars any more. Now with 13 months and 20...

2011 Porsche Boxster SS Review

Inspired by recent great reviews of the Porsche 981 Boxter S and Cayman S models I seriously considered buying one. However I couldn't justify the cost of buying a new one given our punitive tax system meant the same car seemed to almost cost twice as much as the US. And let's not forget the price of options on a new car! Furthermore, I wanted a Porsche with the more tactile mechanical steering...

2012 Renault Fluence Dynamique Review

My experience with this car is pretty much good. I have until now had no issue at all with it. I would like to prefer it could have better fuel economy because I drive this car # city and I just got 13.8L/100km. The drive experience is very good - very comfortable and with the correct tires is very safe on curves. The suspension is a little bit soft for the car...

2012 Volkswagen Amarok TDI400 Review

What a disappointing vehicle the Amarok has been - it has been plagued with warranty issues from day one. VW has not dealt with these issues in a timely manner and it would appear we are not the only customers who have experienced this. The Amarok is gutless and totally unreliable compared to the Landcruiser...

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 500 BE Review

Probably the best of many cars that I have owned. Great design, meaningful engine note, incredible power delivery, seamless transmission, perfect 'Lexus-like' overall finish inside and out. I have no idea what I will replace it with, if ever!! I am 6'3" and the driving position is perfect, in fact I need to bring the seat forward form the rear chocks...

2014 NISSAN X-Trail ST Review

I bought this new X-Trail 2WD Wagon just last week. I was very happy with it until last night while I was driving it at night. I started the car, turned on the headlights. First I struggled a bit to find the gear leaver as the area was too dark. Even the gear indicators ( P N D 2) were not illuminated ( unlike my other Nissan cars i drive)...

2013 Mazda 6 Sport Review

Just a disclaimer before I start: I'm actually an L-Plater, and I'm writing about the car which belongs to my parents. Still, I've driven it long enough to feel compelled to write a review about it. We bought the 2013 Mazda 6 wagon last year after 7 years with 2 Hyundai's. We bought the car after much deliberation and much research...

2012 Holden Barina CDX Review

I purchased my NEW Holden Barina CDX Sedan off the boat, Lovely car to look at, has all the bling, sun roof, fog lights, leather seats and seat warmers. Great little car for two people, there is very little room in the back, Fuel economy, well lets just say it drinks the fuel, I travel 90km's a day, on a full tank you get 566km's so I always need to fuel up at least twice a week, I have a VE Commodore, and I would say this is just as thirsty !!

2010 Ford Falcon XT Review

I purchased my XT Falcon sedan 3 years ago, it had 19000kms on the clock then, it has almost 119,000kms now, and has been faultless, all I have done is put a new battery in it and tyres and replaced the front disc pads (pads only) at 100,000kms. And serviced regularly of course...

A friendly warning to all motorists looking into buying a Mercedes Benz GL: Many GL's, especially with 21' AMG rwheels have a hidden defect or characteristic which is not disclosed to you when buying, but which you may discover later when driving the car.

2014 Nissan X-Trail ST 7 Seat (FWD) Review

I recently purchased the new Nissan X-trail after owning the original T-30 (2006 model). With a growing family I opted for the 7 seats, which only comes in 2wd. I initially thought this would be a problem as we use the car for many holidays including camping and various trips. I also tow a camper trailer and have found it performs exceptionally well...
