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 Sell My Volkswagen Golf Before the Warranty Expires?

I have a challenge ahead which is to separate my wife from her beloved Volkswagen Golf MkVI GTI before the extended DSG warranty expires. The Volkswagen Golf GTI is an awesome bit of kit if you enjoy actually driving a car, but you always have the shadow of long term unreliability and potentially very expensive repairs lurking over the ownership experience should anything go wrong with the DSG or anything else in fact.

When Should I Replace My Old Car?

I have done 265,000km in my 2002 Mazda 323 SP20. Someone said if I change the injectors and fix the wheel bearings it should keep going OK. I need a reliable car as I drive from Menai to Wollongong (65km) four days and week. Rego is due in July. If I spend $20,000 to $25,000 max on a new car would you recommend a Hyundai Veloster, Hyundai i30, Volkswagen Golf or Mazda3?

Should I be Worried About My Daughter's Volkswagen Golf?



Hello John,

I heard you on 2UE talking about a lady that had her Golf off the road for 14 weeks and having a dispute with VW Aust and her insurance company. Just wondering what has happened as I bought my daughter a VW Golf 2011 TSI and it is now being taken to VW Group for 1 month to try and fix a problem re fuel injectors...they think??? and will also fix the gearbox re: the recall.

Do you think that there maybe a connection with the two cars? Would appreciate our opinion.

Enjoy your show on 2UE at the weekends......and Gazza.

Kind regards,
