Nissan X-TRAIL -Vs- Mazda CX-5 -Vs- Kia Sportage

Thank you for a very informative review of the Nissan X-TRAIL on YouTube. We are in the market for a new SUV and we looked at the Nissan X-TRAIL Ti. It will be mainly suburbia driving with no off-road . I was wondering about your opinion of the Nissan X-TRAIL's CVT. I've heard a lot of opinions but the one we test drove today went very well.

What Vehicle Should I Buy for $40k?

We have an '09 Toyota Aurion that has been a great performer but kids and prams etc have it at capacity. Your preference for the Hyundai Sante Fe , and comments on the Kia Sorento has prompted our research further. We will be looking at these soon and moving away from our previous preference of the Territory (concerns we developed were only confirmed by your reviews). Any other suggestions around this size?

Should I Buy a Petrol or a Diesel Kia Sportage?

I’m going to purchase a Kia Sportage SLi and I'd prefer the drive/pick up of the diesel. However, 99.99 per cent of my driving is 5-25 minute city/suburban trips, and I drive only 10,000-12,000km/year. I’ve been told by a few people that diesel engines do better driving long distances, and that lots of short trips with the multiple engine stops and starts doesn’t do the diesel engine any good. Your thoughts?

Which SUV Should I Buy?

I am 32 years old and am keen to buy a new or second-hand SUV. I am ready to spend up to $45,000 on this vehicle. My partner wants a car with a 'premium' feel (leather seats for instance) and I want a car with more acceleration capacity than a soccer-mum car. We may drive off-road very occasionally (twice a year, maybe). What would be your advice regarding the purchase of my next car?

Should I Buy a Kia?

I am not impressed with Kia even though I love driving my Sportage - when it works. I am too scared to fix the cruise control in case something else goes wrong. I don't drive it often ... wonder why? I also have the use of my daughter's 10-year-old Toyota Echo, which just goes on and on. I enjoy your show (except for Kia).

Should I Buy the Hyundai ix35 or the Kia Sportage?

I'm looking to upgrade from a 2004 Mazda3 Maxx Sport (in great condition, all servicing to go with it). My wife and I only, no kids, but would like a ride where I'm sitting a little higher in traffic and the small - medium AWD is looking great. I've done a bit of research and what I'm liking on the road, it comes down to the Kia Sportage SLi and the iX35 Elite, which I believe are in the same category. Which one should we buy?

Should I Buy Mazda CX-5, Hyundai ix35, Santa Fe, Kia Sportage or Subaru XV?

With the brokers you recommend, once I select a vehicle can I get their price before I go to the dealer? I've previously had company cars and on mid-range Ford and Subaru WRX (not me) we'd get $5-6K off but that's gong back nearly 10 years so maybe that sort of discount is not there any more. I can possibly buy using an ABN as I'm self employed - do the brokers know the in-outs of that situation or is it more a question for my accountant?
