2004 Honda Accord V6 Review

The search for a new car came, after the 13 year old faithful Toyota Corona, parked on the side of the road was involved in a hit and run, resulted in extensive damage to the rear and roof making it a write off. In 2005 we wanted a reasonably priced mid-size Japanese V6; test drove the Nissan Maxima, felt clumsy, and ruled out the Camry at the time as it was near the end of its product cycle...

2014 Hyundai Veloster Sr Turbo Review

Remember the 1988 Hyundai Excel. Well, this is not that 80s Hyundai anymore. The company has evolved into a world class auto maker contender earning award winning designs and performances repeatedly. The Turbo version is a must for added hp but you need to know how to take advantages of those extras. It's a joy to drive a TGDI engine with Shiftronic and paddle shifters...

2010 Subaru Liberty 2.5i GT Premium Review

Being a longstanding Subaru owner of both normally aspirated and turbo models and having owned the previous generation Liberty GT Spec B, I have owned a current 5th Gen Liberty GT Premium Auto Sedan, purchased from new since Jun 2010.

2008 Ford Mondeo XR5 Turbo Review

My previous car had been a Ford XR5 Focus. I loved the torquey nature of the Volvo sourced inline five turbo and the slick shifting Getrag six speed manual. It was that video of Jeremy Clarkson that showed me throwing it around the Top Gear test track that had won me over. The noise it made, the way it could be chucked around and how forgiving it could be...

2014 Mazda 2 Neo Sport Review

I recently began a new job in Brisbane and due to its location getting to work involves either a 15 min drive each way from home or multiple modes of public transport taking well over an hour (if timed correctly). Until now I have always worked in the city so I have caught public transport to work which has negated the need for a second car...

I purchased an MY13.5 Polo GTI after having owned an MY02 Passat and MY07 Jetta TDI because I was looking for something a bit more fun.

Initially fell in love with the looks of the Volvo to be honest. Shortlisted The GLA and Volvo - BMW expensive but cheap feeling, Audi - ugly and expensive. After driving both GLA and Volvo back to back chose Volvo on comfort, equipment and performance...

2012 Ford Fpv GT Rspec Review

Having owned over 45 cars and having built many of them, its a constant amazement to me that factories have come to produce such amazing performance in a family sedan. Having owned since new, the Rspec has been flawless and remains the 'one to have' in my eyes. The HERO colouring set up remains iconic for a GT, and the Piano Black interior stunning to look at...
