We all know your rationale when it comes to buying a medium-sized SUV with all-wheel drive. You want a vehicle with more room for the kid(s) – or kid(s) that are coming – but you also have in the back of your mind that one day you might need to go off-road. Anybody that's done any proper off-roading knows that the type of off-roading you think you're going to do, compared to the type you'll actually do, is very different...

1969 Renault 16 TS review

It’s summer 1984. I set out from Oakleigh on my bicycle on my way to the Department of Anatomy, Monash University, where I’m doing my honours degree in Science, looking at neural plasticity in the avian visual system, of all things. About ten minutes into my trip, half way there, Melbourne’s famous weather kicks in, and I get absolutely soaked in a sudden downpour...

2005 Renault Megane Dynamique LX review

One fine, sunny day many years ago, my wife said to me "I think we should get a convertible. I'd look good in a convertible". At the time we were a young couple with a 20-month old toddler. While most people in that bracket go looking for a wagon or an SUV, we brought home our first drop-head - a 1991 Ford Capri Verde...

2017 Renault Trafic LWB Crew Review

Hi world! It was a couple months from the end of my lease, and I was needing an update for my work car. So with the end of my lease approaching, I started looking and dreaming. The work vehicle had to be robust, safe, fun to drive, comfortable and reliable. I have had four-wheel drive dual-cab utes for the last two leases (a Holden Colorado and a Mazda BT50) but I was growing sick of the sore back and rough lumpy ride out on country roads...

2018 Renault Trafic LWB Crew Lifestyle review

I've owned several vans over the years, as I've worked in the building trade most of my life, and because of this occupation, you get yourself into many different predicaments on a daily basis. I had an older model Mercedes Vito 112CDI – that was very good but ended up with too many kays. I've had two Hyundais which I had nothing but trouble with, but were very comfortable inside...
