If you’re in the market for a mainstream small car costing less than $40 grand - that basically means a Toyota Corolla-sized car - let’s eliminate the utter crap

Why does my Holden Cruze rev too high on the freeway?

The major annoyance with my Holden Cruze Equipe is the high gear ratio. Travelling at 110km/h and the 5th gear RPMs are sitting just over 3000, which makes the car sound like it's...screaming (is one way to put it). It's like it really needs a 6th gear. I have taken it to my dealer and they say that there is nothing they can do to lower the gear ratio. Is this true?

Should I Buy a Volkswagen Golf or a Mazda3?

I want to spend around $30,000 on a new car, have driven test Golf Highline and Mazda SP25GT. Loved the ride and engine response in the Volkswagen Golf Highline. The Mazda3 SP25 GT was nicely optioned but left me a little flat with its ride. Not really sure what car to go for. Any suggestions in my price range?

Should I Buy a Hyundai i30 SE?

I purchased a used vehicle last year and I don't like how the car handles. I would like to trade it and I have been looking at a Hyundai i30 and I have taken one for a test drive. Before doing so I had watched your video on the 10 tricks a car dealer will try with you and you were spot on. What do you think of the Hyundai i30 and do you have any other suggestions for a car mainly used to drive kids to and from school and grocery shopping?

How to Choose the Right Small Car

Just read about this brokerage service and it sounds great. Keen to avoid trooping around dealerships and playing their silly games and of course getting the best deal possible. Narrowed the small car selection down to:

  • Mazda 3 Neo
  • Toyota Corolla Ascent
  • Hyundai i30

What do you think? Thanks for your time and look forward to discussing my purchase and sales further with you soon.

What Wagon Should I Buy?

We are looking to purchase a new (or used) small to medium wagon. We are not real fans of SUVs. Our requirements are roof racks, ability to add a tow bar and preferably leather seats. We are looking at the Renault Megane wagon, Hyundai i40, Hyundai i30 and that's about it really (you have scared us off the Cruze). Any advice?

Should I Buy a New Car or a Used Car?

My daughter is a single Mum, and does approximately 60km per day, five days per week. In the near future I feel she will be needing another car. She is looking for something economical and reliable. Not sure if new or second hand, or if we should try the auctions. She feels a new car, as she feels it will give her peace of mind, that all will be ok for a few years, but the males in our family keep tell ing her it is a waste of money?

What Car Should I Replace My Holden Cruze With?

I have a 2011 Holden Cruze CDX. Last of the imported ones. I know you don't like them but until now I have been quite happy with it, except for the auto transmission gear changing, but it has recently developed an auto transmission oil leak and has been back twice to the dealer to rectify but is still leaking. It might be time to buy a new car. But what to get? What other similar sized cars are comparable to these levels of creature comforts for say under $26,000?
