First car, favourite car

Firsts are paramount to our mental growth. They tattoo our minds with an initial notion.

What's in a tank of fuel? The cars with the best (and worst) driving range in Australia

While impressive performance, cool technology and a lower pricepoint can all be guiding forces when buying a new car, it's often other elements – like real-world fuel economy – that actually have the greatest effect on your ownership experience. Once you drive away from the dealership, you'll become less preoccupied with those nifty LED tail-lights and more focussed on how many times you have to hit the petrol station in a single week...

2006 Nissan Tiida ST-L review

The unloved Tiida. Is this the most underrated car in Australia? I purchased my 2006 Nissan Tiida ST-L hatch in October 2018. I had seen it on a car sales website for about two months before deciding to make the trip from Melbourne to Rye to see it. When I arrived at the (then) owner's house, I saw a very poorly looking, faded black Tiida with grass growing around it...

2009 Nissan X-Trail ST (4x4) review

When the T32 X-Trail succeeded the T31 in 2014, the TV advert showed a family taking a shortcut through a farm. When they arrived at the other side the kids in the back were covered in gunk and milkshake. Even running over a hose was enough to send a cascade of green slime leaping from its container...

1999 Nissan Pulsar SSS review

After having my Pulsar Plus stolen while I was at work one day, there was a N15 shaped hole in my heart. But after a few months a British Racing Green (as I like to call it) SSS showed up on Facebook marketplace. Not knowing how to drive manual yet, I had the seller drive me around the hills. I was happy with what I saw and $1200 bucks later I had a car that my friend drove home for me...

2013 Nissan GT-R review

So, 10 years into Godzilla’s life and a common question is whether the GT-R, a Nissan - can really be called a Supercar.

From the exotic, cutting edge lines to the sub-3 second 0-100 sprint time, others are inclined to agree...
