HYUNDAI GENESIS USED CAR REVIEW: An impressive looking car from any angle

The second-generation Genesis sedan eclipsed its predecessor in every way and collected a long list of international design, quality and technology awards. With used models of the Genesis now being offered with low kilometres at prices under $30,000 this is a car worthy of your consideration.

SUZUKI JIMNY REVIEW: This off-roader is priced to sell

The long awaited Suzuki Jimny has returned to Australian and the new model fully embodies the core character of the off-roader that has been around for almost 50 years.

Suzuki has certainly given the value-for-money playing card very careful consideration and the price-point starting price of $23,990 plus on-roads for the manual will be very well received by buyers across Australia.

OWNER INTERVIEWS

 
Jim is from the Buick Car Club in Sydney and the owner of this former moonshine run 1918 Speedster Special that is 1 or 4 built in the USA.

The hand-built Buick was built during the prohibition years and eventually found its way to Australia as a gift to the daughter of the owner after she migrated here.

More information is posted in our Owner Interviews section where we feature over 70 videos that we filmed over a number of years.

Queensland Police Force satisfied with their Kia Stingers
The Queensland Polce Force appear to be well satisfied with their fleet of Kia Stingers which have been introduced into operational work after an extended assessment program.

The evaluation process by the Queensland Police was extensive and in several parts and started with the desktop evaluation, a track performance evaluation and then the operational evaluation conducted in real-world conditions.


The 54 Queensland Police Service Stingers currently in operation are all stock standard models with 11 of the cars working in unmarked guise.

Indications are that the Queensland Police consider the Stinger to have a better overall finish than the Falcon and Commodore cars and with slightly improved fuel consumption.
