2014 Nissan Pulsar ST-S

Absolutely NOTHING. However it is a new car, so only time will tell. A wolf in sheep's clothing. The 140kw 1.6 turbo is an absolute firecracker of an engine. Its direct competition is of course the Holden Cruze SRi, which also has a 1.6 turbo… However ... [Published carsurvey.org - 18 hours ago]

2014 Kia Soul EX GDI

I haven't had it long enough for anything to go wrong with it. At first I was looking at a 2010 Soul and was leaning towards buying it as the price was good, it had low miles on it, and other than the previous owner being a dog lover (claw scratches on ... [Published carsurvey.org - Jul 28 2014]

2007 Jaguar S-Type R

Catalyst failure. This is my second S-Type R. You’ll find my other review nearby.The comfort of the car is amazing, even with the 19” wheels, which makes the ride relatively crashy compared with the normal 18s. This is an R model, so you could forgive ... [Published carsurvey.org - Jul 27 2014]

2013 Kia Optima SXL

Nothing, all is good so far. The ride is a little firm, and as mentioned in other reviews, tyre noise intrudes into the cabin; apparently replacing the default tyres resolves this issue.I find the steering is weighted well, but there is no center feedback. ...

Quotes

...Any time I find a business that misrepresents anything I always ask myself, "If they misrepresented that, what else weren't they exactly truthful with?"
...There's a decent amount of legroom front and back, even for tall-ish people like me (185cm / 6' 1 "). The front seats have a very tall back, which makes them fairly comfortable, but there was no lumbar adjustment on the model I drove. The steering wheel adjusted for height, but not reach. The boot was also a good size, which given the legroom, makes me think the Ractis is a bit longer than the Yaris. I think with the rear seats down, I could just about fit my bike in without taking the front wheel off, which is terrific for a sub-compact car. There was a foot operated park brake, which I found a bit weird, never having encountered one before, but you get used to it."
...He pointed to a Japanese car that he had up on the hoist and said, "This car is here because of one fault - the owner brought it in because the leftleft front blinker doesn't work In your car that would be $10 for a new flasher switch, or $5 for an old one from a wrecker. The guy who owns this car is up for $1300, because you can't just replace the switch any more. Everything is sealed up in the black box, and you have to replace the whole computer, even though it's only one bit of it that's broken."
