2007 Nissan 350Z Touring review

I'd owned my Z for 3 and a half years and it had been a joy. I have always been a car enthusiast and it had been time to buy my first interesting car. I'd wanted a rear-wheel drive manual with a characterful engine. I was also at a life stage where backseats were optional. The 350Z fit the bill and was a very affordable second hand...

2012 Nissan Almera ST review

I borrowed this car for a week on the Car Next Door car sharing app while the money pit was getting some work done on it. I needed a cheap run around that was big enough for two child seats and my work gear. This is a model that I admit I have never really taken any notice of, but after driving the car for a week, it has really gown on me...

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (2WD) review

I’m in my late 60’s and have been considering an SUV for some time, because of the ease of getting in and out, and the elevated driving position. The X-Trail wasn’t on my radar until I drove one - my son’s ST 2.5-litre 7-seater. I was impressed, so when I saw this one advertised I bought it without a second thought...

2010 Nissan 370Z review

I had owned the stunning Nissan 370Z for a very short time. It had always been a car of choice in the current markets against the Mazda MX-5, Toyota GT86, along with the Subaru BRZ. I believe it was aimed for the entry-level sports car market for car enthusiasts and people who’re loyal to the brand...
