1991 Nissan GT-R Review

Today's R35 Nissan GT-R needs no introduction, setting the benchmark for affordable supercars it forced the likes of Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini to lift their game to compete with a car costing less than half. Many people who have never played on a Playstation or Xbox may be unaware of the heritage of the famed Nissan Skyline GT-R badge...

2015 Nissan 370Z Review

I used to believe that once you go European, you never go back with cars. My last car was a BMW and I loved its luxury look and feel, but I got bored. I wanted more from the driving experience and something really fun. I also wanted a manual car and unless I was going to splash out on something like a M3, nothing European seemed like a sensible manual choice when considering resale value...

1993 Nissan GT-R Review

GT-R. Godzilla. King of the mountain. All attributed to the R32 Nissan Skyline. Not many vehicles can reside in books, games and the hearts of people all over the world quite like the R32 GT-R. The roar of the 2.6L engine freely revving out to its redline of 7,500 rpm (and beyond), gripping to the road by Nissans high tech ATTESSA-ETS 4wd system enabling manoeuvring through corners as if built on rails...

1999 Nissan 200 Review

Nissan Silvia Spec R If you've owned a car that still makes you smile after seven years, she's a keeper. Owning a car is like a marriage - you know when you've found the right one. If the S15 could be likened to a girl, you may be reluctant to introduce her to your mother, however. Stunning good looks, but high maintenance and attention seeking...

2009 Nissan GT-R Review

I get to live a lot of peoples dreams when I turn the key of this car. I'm talking about my 2001 Nissan Skyline GTR VSpec II. The car arguably made famous by the late Paul Walker in the Fast & Furious franchise. Not only is this car my dream car, but the dream car of a large number of people hooked on the Fast & Furious movies themselves...

2005 Nissan Patrol Review

Ok so let's get the bad points out of the way straight up. The Y61 Nissan Patrol neither feels like a car or four wheel drive to drive. This thing is a truck - and I can tell you from experience that as far as trucks go I would much prefer to spend twelve hours behind the wheel of a T950 Kenworth pulling 24 tonnes than negotiate a peak hour drive across town in the GU...

2010 Nissan GT-R Review

So It's no secret I get to drive a lot of rad cars, the other day I was blasting up Windy point in a VE SS Commodore, not long before that I was lapping a GT86 around Bathurst, then there was of course the completely unforgettable replica Lambo Countach I drove last year. All these cars are unique and share their own level of personality...

1988 Nissan SKYLINE Review

Whenever I told my 17 year old mates that I owned a Skyline on my Provisional license I got the same reaction. "Oh man that's awesome! Is it an R34?" In the post-Fast and Furious world the late R34 Skyline, no matter whether it was a non-turbo sedan or the holy grail that is the GT-R, is the ultimate "JDM" car, unless you happened to know a rabid fan of the Toyota Supra...

2010 Nissan GT-R Review

How does it go, you may ask? Like a scalded cat. This particular GTR has been treated to a forged RB26 engine, Tomei 272 cams and a small but responsive Garret GT-X 30/76 sitting atop a 6boost manifold. It's definitely not the most powerful GT-R around with a modest 460 hp at all four on E85, but what it lacks in overall power it makes up for in response and the ability to put every single pony to the tarmac thanks to the Federal RSR semi slicks and the outstanding ATTESA AWD system...

2012 Nissan X-trail Tl (4x4) Review

This car does everything very well. My biggest gripe is the reverse gear which in the manual is way too tall- there's no need for such a high reverse gear and it necessitates a lot of clutch slipping when reversing up hill with a trailer. Having said that- the rest of the gearbox is a pleasure to use and changes smoothly and feels strong with great ratios for all manner of normal driving...

2012 Nissan Leaf Review

  I bought a new Nissan Leaf in in 2013. I have had the car for 2 years now and been very happy with its performance. The car has so much power you find yourself leaving the other motorists behind at the traffic lights. The only time you would pull into a fuel service station is to buy chocolates or a beverage...
