2016 Volkswagen Golf 92 TSI Comfortline review

Before I purchased my new Golf TSI Comfortline in March this year, I spent many hours searching various motoring websites for car reviews, and Forum sites for a list of cars that might suit me (e.g.; Mazda3, Kia Cerato, Hyundai i30 and Elantra, Toyota Corolla – and I even test-drove a Kia Si Sportage Diesel)...

2014 Volkswagen Golf GTi Performance Review

Traditionally I have been a loyal Subaru fan (WRX and Liberty GT & 3.6R) but you outgrow the Subaru range. I read all the media hype regarding the VW Golf and took the plunge with a red VW Golf GTI Performance Pack with HP bump, R brakes, Dual Xenon’s and LED, LSD, Alcantara and Adaptive Chassis Control. At just over 2 years in, I am still in love...

2016 Volkswagen Golf 92TSI Review

The Volkswagen Golf is a really well put together and great handling small car let down by a clunky dual-clutch gearbox. We purchased this basest of base model 92TSI Golfs as an ex-demo with around 4k on the odometer for $22,000 dollars - pricing that seems pretty competitive with other small cars on the market, discounting what will probably be higher servicing costs...

2016 Volkswagen Multivan Highline TDI450 4motion Review

Things were different in the '70s when I first got my licence. Back then you drove a Ford Falcon or a Holden Kingswood, maybe a Valiant if you wanted something unusual. European cars were for rich people and Japanese cars were cheap and nasty according to drivers of proper Aussie made cars, myself included...

2016 Volkswagen Passat 132 TSI Review

When looking for an alternative to my FG XR6 turbo Falcon, I hadn't considered the new B8 Passat until I saw one in the flesh. Much better than the pictures indicate. However the small 1.8 turbo petrol was a concern but after a test drive I was sold. The performance was amazing (with the standard 7-speed DSG) and also helped by the fact that it was almost 400kg lighter than my beloved Falcon...

1970 Volkswagen 1500 (beetle) Review

This is my Dad's car which has been in the family since 1970. It was originally bought for my uncle but he swapped it with my dad for a 1969 Kombi when he needed more room for the kids. My old man has had it ever since. We recently restored it as it was getting a bit tired after 40-odd years as a daily driver and four or five learner drivers...

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...

2013 Volkswagen Golf 118 TSI Comfortline Review

To some the Golf is the king of the C Segment while to others they are a ticking time bomb. These differing opinions aren’t surpising when over 30 million Golf's having been built globally. To add my 2 cents I thought I would share my past year and a half experience with my 2013 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagon 118TSI Comfortline. The 118TSI Comfortline has a 1...

2013 Volkswagen Golf GTi Review

I've come from the big and heavy side of cars, so going from a "boat" to this MK6 GTI was quite a drastic change. One thing I must point out is the fact that there is A LOT more room inside than it looks like from the outside. I am 6'6 and not only do I fit comfortably, I can also have an average sized person behind me...

2016 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI Review

Originally I was looking at a Land Rover Discovery or a Mercedes-Benz, The Touareg wasn't even under consideration until my wife got a Passat as a company car. I was so impressed by the interior and performance I test drove the Touareg. The price range was a little high for a new one so I bought a second hand vehicle with low km's...

2014 Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI R-line Review

I love this car, but there are some things I wish were different. The price is eye-watering for a V8 TDI, $120,000 in Australia; a Volkswagen should not cost that much. The performance in a straight line is epic, when it arrives, because the turbo lag is pretty awful; meaningful grunt takes about 2 seconds after you put your boot into it...
