2016 Mitsubishi Mirage Ls Review

Overall I am quite impressed by the new facelift Mirage. Yes the engine note intrudes a little when accelerating but in my opinion it is a characterful sound. I love the way the CVT gearbox works, keeping the revs as low as possible until you need more power, then increasing the revs only as high as necessary...

2014 Foton Tunland (4x4) Review

Have had my 4x4 tray-back for 20 months, about 39,000 kms. I have just taken it on a trip through the Simpson desert and it preformed brilliantly. It has a lot of features for the price. The cabin space is great and it is fantastic to get in and out of. I do miss left hand foot rests but having done trips that are well over a thousand kms in a day and am no worse than others cars worth a lot more...

2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132 TSI Premium (4x4) Review

Purchased my Scout in October 2015 and have done 15 000 k's up until end of August 2016. Outstanding fuel economy gained on  my trip to Adelaide from Central Coast(14.2 kms/litre) sticking on no more than 5 kms over the designated speed limit when on the open road. Technology is superb and keeps you busy the whole time...

2009 BMW 7 40li Review

  A while ago I wanted to change cars and short listed a few, including my now owned 7 series. Why such a big car you ask? Well, it wasn't about the size as much as about comfort and technology. Thing is, I made a check list of features I wanted my car to have, ranging from integrated satellite navigation to heated seats for the cold winter...

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Active (4x4) Review

I absolutely love, love, love my Hyundai Santa Fe!! I have three children 4,3 & 1, we have owned the Santa Fe 7 seater for over a year and am so pleased. I have had three new vehicles in five years and the Hyundai is the ultimate family car. I use it for work, family vacations and everyday use. First of all, the space is incredible...

2013 Volkswagen Golf GTi Review

It has been nearly three years since I took delivery of my new, white (with Tartan interior) VW Mk 7 GTi and said goodbye to my fantastic, but family unfriendly Porsche Boxster. The Golf is the first car I had bought brand new and I must say I haven't been disappointed...

2009 Mazda 3 Sp25 Review

Bought this car second hand at around 50,000 km for $15k. It is an absolute steal for a car that is extremely well balanced. It's a comfortable cruiser when you want it to be and a corner carving Hot Hatch the next second. The chassis on this car has the perfect balance between comfort and sportiness. The driving experience is amazing for a car at this price point...

2008 Honda Accord Euro Luxury Review

We bought our 6-speed manual CL9 Luxury Euro new in February 2008 – it was one of the last CL9 models left in the country prior to the CU2 (the last, and larger Euro) release. Our Euro is now at ~92,xxxkms. Initial run-in seemed to take forever – between 2,000 to 3,000kms before it loosened-up...

2016 Hyundai Tucson Highlander R-series (AWD) Review

We had a top specification IX35 and traded it in for a Highlander Tucson R series 2 litre Diesel. The handling in the newer model is much improved as is the steering feel. It is well speced with heated and air cooled seats, auto tailgate, full audio and sat nav, radar land and proximity, rain and headlight auto sensing, etc. Fuel economy not so good as claimed...

1998 Mitsubishi Magna Advance Review

  I’m not exactly sure what possessed me to buy the Magna. It was partly that I needed a tow-bar, and this $400 towbar came with a 1998 Magna attached, and partly because I wanted a hack of a car that I didn’t have to worry too much about taking care of. This model Magna also had a good reputation for its crash safety...

2015 Toyota Corolla Rz Review

Most journalism these days comes from enthusiasm about performance rather than an independent view of the overall car itself. Most reviews comparing a Corolla to other brands, the Corolla never wins, but guess which sells the most? It's the Corolla and there is a bloody good reason why...

2015 Mazda 2 Neo Review

I never thought I could fall in love with a car - that was untill I purchased my Mazda 2 sedan 8 months ago. For people considering of buying a small car it should be at the top of your list for these reasons. The car has plenty of pickup for a round town and the little 1.5L is acceptable for highway cruising but you have to think and plan before over taking...

2013 Mazda BT-50 GT (4x4) Review

Needed a ute to replace the 2005 Toyota Prado, so chose the BT50/Ford. Handles like a truck. Great if you are going forward, but no visibility backing up. Even after fitting a backing camera. Heavy in the steering & doesn't hold the road as good as the old Prado. As I said it feels and handles like a truck twice its size...

2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara PreSTIge (4x4) Review

The 3.2 motor suits our mix of caravan towing, off-road ventures and general needs well but it's fantastic on a long trip on any road surface using only about 10L/100 km. Around town fuel use is about 13...

2016 Hyundai Sonata Active Review

The Hyundai Sonata is a good midsize car that really challenges class leaders. But for some reason it has been a very slow selling model. The particular model here the base Active is really well priced and equipped considering its drive away price is about $30k and the step up to the next model Elite is $7000. It comes with features such as a reversing camera with sensors, 4...
