1996 Toyota STARLET Review

If you're tired of seeing the same old car you're driving over and over again on the daily commute to work perhaps you'd do well to look toward something a bit more…'foreign'. Maybe something like this? A 1994 Toyota Starlet GT (not 1996 as stated above). The 1989 to 1995 run of Toyota Starlets were never sold on Australian shores making this quite the uncommon city car and hot hatch combined...

2012 Toyota Corolla Review

It is one of Australian's most popular cars. Most motor enthusiasts will label this vehicle as pedestrian. For practicality & price, it can't be easily surpassed. It fits up to five persons of median height comfortably and there's space for suitcases at the back. It can travel at the speed limits effortlessly and it has a lot of the features expected in a modern car...

1999 Toyota Corolla Review

With an exterior looking like the sad love-child of that billy-cart you made as a kid and those trolleys that old women use to take their groceries home, this 1999 Toyota Corolla has a lot left to be desired in the looks department. And as for the interior, well I'll be kind; it's functional. Very functional...

2000 Toyota Camry Review

Toyota Crown – A cut above the rest. Family wagons have traditionally been a beast of compromise. Whether its performance, comfort & luxury, styling, or just simply interior space, it seems as if something always has to give. Thankfully, that's not the case with the JZS171 series Toyota Crown Estate Athlete V...

2013 Toyota 86 Review

In 2012, Toyota released arguably one of the most important cars of the year. The Toyota 86 is a back-to-basics sports car with a 2.0lt 4 cylinder engine producing a reasonable 147kw and achieves the sprint to 100 in 7.6 seconds for the manual and 8.2 seconds for the automatic...

2003 Toyota Camry Review

As an impending father to be, I can say that I am ready for when my baby comes, car-wise anyways. My vehicle of choice you ask? The humble Toyota Camry before it split into Aurion V6 and Camry 4 cylinder models. I know all the rev heads or anybody with any sort of passion for cars will roll their eyes and say, 'that's so boring', but hear me out...

1997 Toyota CELICA Review

The 1997 Toyota Celica is one of the better used cars that can be bought from the 1990s. This car is incredible at providing the sense of bond between "man and machine". With very few electronic assists seen in modern cars and a kerb weight that would make a Holden commodore shy away, the Celica is an amazingly enjoyable car to drive...

1999 Toyota SPACIA Review

When friends first saw my 1999 Toyota Spacia they were quick to label it a “Soccer Mum Van”. And I will concede that with very few concessions to refined styling and a seating capacity of eight, it does lend itself to, well soccer Mum's...

2002 Toyota Corolla Review

This car is so reliable. I have come across no problem what-so-ever except that the clutch has worn over the years. The torque of the car is exceptional. When in 5th gear and going higher speed limits like anything over 100 kilometres per hour the revs because pretty high (4000 - 5000 revs). This unfortunately this sucks the fuel when going on long distance trips...

1976 Toyota CELICA Review

Owning a classic motor car is a pipe dream of every serious motoring enthusiast. It's the stuff of dreams, an opportunity to connect to the ages past and touch a piece of living history. It's beautiful, romantic and classy – but also hugely impractical and very educational in just how far we have come when it comes to cars. Allow me to illustrate...

2013 Toyota 86 Review

Such a mixed bag of emotions come with owning a Toyota 86, well for me at least. I gave up a very capable and happiness inducing Mk6 VW Golf GTI to pursue the Japanese sports car. Buying the 86 was a frustrating experience, the dealership (South Melbourne Toyota) was horrible to deal with but I wanted this car and I was determined to have it in my driveway...
