2017 BMW M140i review

On 27 May 2005, beside a roaring log fire at Darley’s Restaurant, my then fiancé took one sip of the 1976 Grange I had splashed out on for our engagement dinner and immediately announced to the waiter and myself, “Oh wow, that’s lovely, you have the rest darling”. It was as if she was reading from a script and I had written it...

2013 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo review

Let's start off with the fun part. This car is fast. Real world fast. Sure, many a car (including Holden's SS Ute) would do better on a race track but I do not use a race track every day. This has by far more power and speed than anyone truly needs, but... I bought the car as I came into position to purchase a fun car...

1994 Mercedes-Benz S320 review

Released in 1992, the Mercedes-Benz S Class could arguably be one of the last cars built to the 'the best or nothing' motto. The sheer presence, vault-like build quality and incredible attention to detail command it to being a car almost like no other. It was referred to as 'the cathedral on wheels' when it first came out by the press – a result of the US$1 billion development costs that changed the automotive landscape...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 110 TSI Comfortline review

I have been born with a curse. It's a curse that makes any car trip to the supermarket an episode of mild annoyance. Having always been an owner of a compact or small car, it could be argued I brought this curse upon myself – and this could be a rational explanation – however, being an adult today means my curse is everyone else's fault, or indeed a problem with society at large...

2015 Hyundai Sonata Active review

I have driven Alfa Romeos for at least the last 10 years and I love them. There is a magical quality about them but they are also flawed in some ways. Recently, my wife had an operation and spent a week in hospital. The journey home was excruciating for her when I picked her up in my pride and joy with 19-inch low profile wheels and rock hard suspension...

2013 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Distinctive review

After over four years of ownership with "G" – Giulietta just doesn't roll of the tongue – I have mixed, but mostly positive, feelings towards one of the most reliable car Alfa's ever produced (up to this point). The Distinctive model was one rung below the proper top of the line hot hatch QV, so with 125kW it wasn't short of power...

2015 Toyota Landcruiser Sahara (4x4) review

Overall, the Landcruiser 200 provides the rugged and robust design Toyota is well known for. The 4.5-litre V8 provides grunt whenever required, perfect for when towing a heavy load, although the turbos give a little lag when punching the accelerator. For the size of the Landcruiser the engine provides relatively economical fuel consumption, whether it be city or highway driving...

2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG review

You can ignore the background of how I came to own this car by skipping the first few paragraphs. Entirely up to you. My first (real) car was a 2005 VZ SS Holden Commodore. I had just turned 22. I remember the excitement of picking it up and being the only person in my suburb to have that model, at the time...

2012 Ford Mondeo Titanium TDCi review

Before I start, I'm a 14 year old who is interested in cars, so here is a review of my mother's Ford Mondeo Titanium TDCi. We upgraded from a Territory TX, so it was a nice welcome to the European segment for our family. This car is incredibly well priced in the used car segment, with most examples fetching under $20,000. And that is for a range topping Titanium...

2010 Mazda 3 Neo review

I bought this car a bit over a month ago from its original owner with 72,000km indicated. It's my first car that I bought for $7000 but after 12 months rego and title transfer it came to a bit over $8000. The previous owner had the windows tinted front and rear. I specifically looked for a Mazda 3 after the year 2010, as a few of the base models from 2009 were not equipped with side or curtain airbags...

2016 Volkswagen Golf 92 TSI review

The Volkswagen Golf needs no introduction. A perennial favourite among the new car consumer looking for quality, Euro chic at more mainstream pricing, and modest timeless styling, the Golf has a long and storied history in the Australian marketplace over its many years all the way up to the introduction of the Mark 7.5 Golf introduced in July 2017...

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC250d review

My son said, “Your old Merc ML is polluting the world and depleting resources. Get something that is more fuel efficient and fun”. So I bought the GLC250d last year; it has done 9000 km so far. Of this, we've gone skiing in the Snowy Mountains three times. On a trip, average fuel consumption is about 6.1 to 6...

2017 Mazda CX-3 Akari (FWD) review

I was looking to replace my 2012 Mazda 2 and was searching for something slightly larger but still akin to what I was used to. I was also looking for a technology upgrade and the Mazda CX-3 Akari certainly does not disappoint there! The MZD Connectivity is very easy to use – love the fact I can use my phone hands-free and receive texts and have them read out...

2016 BMW I3 Hybrid review

Don’t worry, I've heard it all before. You would be surprised at the number of people who have come up to me and asked me: "what is that car?" You also may be surprised at the number of people who comment on its looks; both positive and negative remarks. Either way it is a car that prompts conversation and I think that is a good thing...

2017 BMW 118i M Sport review

We recently moved to Queensland and before arriving had a new Chrysler 300 SRT which was perhaps the most incredible car we'd ever owned! The BMW 118i is a far cry in almost every respect however, different needs (garage size) required a small car...
