2013 SUBARU WRX (AWD) Review

2013 had come around and it was time for an upgrade in vehicle. The Subaru WRX more specifically the STi had always been a classic hero car for me growing up. The combination of a turbo boxer engine, AWD and manual transmission all squeezed into a hatchback body just ticked all the boxes for me...

2007 SUBARU LIBERTY GT-B TUNED BY STi Review

One of the finest sports sedans I've ever driven. The engine is very powerful although not very smooth and doesn't sound very evocative. Ride and handling is stiff but never harsh and handling is extremely neutral even when going around a corner in a 4 wheel drift. Brakes are faultless, the Brembos are fantastic...

2012 SUBARU XV 2.0i-S Review

Had my white pearl XV since 1/12 and have not been disappointed apart from expected standard features eg auto dim mirror, rain sensing wipers. Love the CVT and not short on power for me unless down low. Beautiful ride and excellent economy (came down from a Forester XT Premium). Has a lot of B's and W's but lacks some that I'd use...

2012 SUBARU IMPREZA 2.0i-L (AWD) Review

Great car. Holds the road well. Love to drive it.

2013 SUBARU OUTBACK 2.5i PREMIUM Review

Getting into an Outback and driving it away is a bland experience, nothing special. However, if you live with an Outback for a while you will appreciate it more and more. It all works. The all-wheel drive is briliant on any surface, including gravel, hail stones like snow you could barely stand on, mud and grass. The car cruises through it all and stays safe...

2013 SUBARU XV 2.0i-S Review

I own a Subaru XV CVT. In my time I have owned most makes of cars small, medium and luxury. This is my third Subaru. DO NOT BELIEVE PROFESSIONAL CAR TESTERS. The Subaru XV CVT is one of the best cars of it's class on the road. It has plenty of power. The CVT is smooth and noise free. I have owned Mercedes with automatic gear boxes and the Subaru CVT is better...

2011 SUBARU LIBERTY 2.5i Review

At the end of MY11 Subaru fitted obsolete satnavs with 8 inch screens to Libertys to try to boost sales. The sat nav part is so poor and user unfriendly, we use a Tom Tom instead. Reversing camera and bluetooth are good as is the radio. RCA plugs demonstrate how old these were, complete with out of date 2009 maps...

2000 SUBARU LIBERTY GX (AWD) Review

We had an auto GX wagon from new for 10 years and coming from a lemon of a Renault this was a revelation. In that time it never let us down, apart from having to replace the dead battery and water filling the in brake lights (didn't affect the operation of the lights.) Subaru's AWD system is terrific...

2012 SUBARU IMPREZA XV (AWD) Review

Being 60+ we sold our '10 Forester XT Premium privately for something smaller and in a SUV/Hatch style. With a disability I have a left foot accelerator modification in conjunction with the original for when the wife drives. We checked out the Mazda 3 and 6, Honda Euro and Civic, Mitz ASX and as a throw-in the Suzuki Kizashi...

2012 SUBARU LIBERTY 2.5i Review

The new 2012 model gets 10 way driver power seats, leather throughout, rear view camera, new 4.3" USB media center, rear air-con vents, full size alloy spare, all for $500 cheaper. It's $6000 cheaper than the premium, that only gets a 8" GPS system/media center, small sunroof (compared to the panoramic size of my traded 2009 wagon), and powered passenger seat...

2005 SUBARU LIBERTY Review

The 2005 Subaru Liberty GT is an interesting and sometimes understated car, combining the best of the Japanese automaker's luxury appointments, with the award-winning driveline of the Impreza WRX. As a package the Liberty ticked all the boxes when I purchased it about 2 years ago, the performance of the GT is excellent; a turbocharged 180kW/310Nm variant of the EJ20 boxer engine provides ample power...
