2014 Skoda Yeti 103 TDI (4x4) Review

I bought this car, as I wanted something different. For the last 20 odd years I have bought Japanese vehicles and have a high regard for them. Since purchasing the Yeti, I have to say that the handling is far better. The car is very comfortable, the front seats fit near perfectly, although the ride is a little firm, it handles great...

2010 Mitsubishi Triton Glx-r (4x4) Review

5 years ago I was in the market for a dual cab ute and for my price range it came down to a 2-4 year old Hilux SR5 or 1-2 year old Triton GLX-R. After looking around for a few months I decided on the Triton due to its equipment and features which left the Hilux stuck in the ages, and also the price...

2014 Mazda 3 Sp25 GT Review

From the day I picked her up, I've never had a problem. You can tell Mazda have really worked hard to make sure this car lasts, I've driven other cars and you feel like if you push it a little it will fall apart, but never with the Mazda. Pushing hard, there is a bit of understeer, but that's to be expected from FWD car. It has plenty of up and go as well...

2016 Mazda CX-5 GT Safety (4x4) Review

CX-5 GT looks the part from the outset. LED DRL, Headlights and Tail lamps. 19" dark alloys wheels. Inside Black leather and trim with classy chrome highlights, make you feel a little better shelling out $50K on a car. Start the 2.2lt diesel engine and you would be mistaken for thinking you were in the petrol engine CX-5...

2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Exclusive 1.6 E-HDi Review

I might have been a bit keen on the Cactus from the first time I heard about it. Having been out in Europe for a while before arriving here, I was all set to buy one! I ordered it in the launch week back in September 2015, with a delivery in Feb 16. I don't drive manual, and I was keen on the pros of the auto: diesel, push-button transmission, aircraft style handbrake, bench seat and centre armrest...

2013 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

The Subie came into our lives a tad over 12 months ago and was quickly named by the kids - who loved it from the time we picked it up. The previous owner wisely ticked the 'luxury pack' box, so our base model has light coloured leather seats, electric adjustment of the drivers seat, a 'better' audio system and sat nav...

2001 Renault Clio Sport Review

It's small, and it has a lot of rattles and it's not the most refined car in the world but I love it. Renault Sport built their reputation on driver's cars and this is certainly one of those. My particular example has had the typically made-of-cheese French engine mounts replaced with rigid items which greatly increases NVH but also increases throttle response (and they won't need to be replaced again!)...

2012 Mazda 6 Atenza Review

I bought one of the first of the SkyActiv Mazda 6 sedans, and have been very pleased overall. It suits me well, but a few aspects probably limit its appeal. Like other cars in the so-called medium class, it is very much a family-sized car in the cabin. The front accommodation is spacious enough, and there is plenty of legroom in the back, without being up to limo standard...

2014 BMW 1 M135i Review

The ultimate drivers hatchback search has been on for some years. A couple cars ago I had a 2008 STi, but had a job that needed 25,000kms of Sydney driving, and whilst a nice gearbox and not too bad ride, eventually went for a diesel auto Wrangler for a few years, then onto a BMW 130i that was also P plate compliant, so ticked the box of a capable track car and is still in the family with my son driving it...

2010 Mazda 2 Neo Review

I've written a few Owner reviews for my last couple of cars, including a Fiesta ST and GH Mazda6. Now I've had a few before that, including a 2007 Mazda2 Maxx auto which was written off, which makes for an interesting comparison to my latest acquisition. I lost my off street parking and am forced to fight the tight streets of the inner-East of Sydney...

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander CRDi (4x4) Review

This is a review on just receiving the 2016 Highlander(DM3) Santa Fe in April 2016 and only having just done the 1,500K first service. I have had this vehicle for just over one month now and it has taken this long to familiarise myself with all the features and its driving ability on both residential, highway and rutted dirt roads...

2012 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) Review

I have had a 2012 px Ranger for four years . I have my own business and have clocked up 109000km over that period. I did not have any problems with the vehicle in that time and it has been the best car I have ever owned. I have just upgraded to the 2016 model and hope to have an even better experience with this...

2016 Toyota Camry Atara Sl Hybrid Review

Dropped in to Toyota dealer to give them a list of accessories to quote a 2016 HiLux. The wife was with me and as I was talking to the salesman I asked him if he had seen my wife he said I think she is out on the lot. About 5 mins later I see her 2013 Camry hybrid driving on to the lot and before I new it we were signing up on a 2016 Atara SL hybrid...

2010 Ford Fpv F6 Review

I bought my FPV F6 310 after it had done service as a dealer finance directors car. The first registered owner at 8900 km. From day one I loved the understated looks in Edge over black, it's performance on trips yet docile nature around town. I fitted a Hollandia sunroof otherwise it was left factory. I drive 40,000 km per year, and after three years decided it was time to move it on...

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander CRDi (4x4) Review

After owning our 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Series 2 for a few months now, I feel that I'm in a good position to write an owners review on the pros and cons of this car. With approximately 6,500 km's on the clock, and almost due for it's first scheduled service, I've been extremely happy with the car and there's only been one or 2 minor issues of note...
