  • EFTM Smart Home: Control your garage door with your smartphone

    So a Bluetooth controller for your Garage door isn’t new – though the last one I installed was great, it had no app and wasn’t much chop for multiple users.  So the opportunity to test a GoGate 2 opened up a whole new world. At $170 for the unit...
  • EFTM Quick Fix: Toyota Hilux SR5

    It was the best-selling model in 2016 and for years has helped Toyota stay at the top of the charts. But when compared to the current crop of today’s fashionable, flashy alternatives it doesn’t rate a mention, at least in the critic’s eyes. Chris Bowen spent a week in...
  • Kia Picanto 1.25 MPI Petrol Auto – EFTM QUICK FIX

    For many people who get the chance to review different cars week in and week out, the Kia Picanto wouldn’t be on the radar, and would sit idle most of their time with it – but for me, this is an alternative to my daily driver – my 2010 Mazda...
  • Citroen C4 Cactus – EFTM Quick Fix

    Not since ever have I felt so awkward driving a car, especially when it happens to be a yellow Cactus on wheels. (Sorry ‘Hello Yellow’). Strange, bizarre and potentially alienating this curious little offering from Citroen turns heads for good and bad. But how does this departure from the norm...
  • Ford Kuga Titanium Diesel – Review

    It’s been almost three years since I last gave the Ford Kuga a decent look – back then it was an impressive car without question – today, it stacks up as well if not better with refinements from top to bottom....
  • Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic TD4 180 – EFTM Quick Fix

    The last time we sampled the mid-sized luxury SUV Range Rover Evoque was in 2014. What impressed most at the time was the combination of luxury, radical design and a more than wannabe penchant for capable off-road work. Since then the concept turned reality vehicle has received a new...
  • Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed – EFTM Quick Fix

    It’s been around for eons, the Mitsubishi Pajero that is. Like a refurbished RSL club it just keeps servicing the market year after year, but with the occasional bell and even whistle added to keep pace with far more sophisticated offerings. 2015 saw another facelift, new wheels, better headlights...
  • Mitsubishi ASX LS Manual – EFTM Quick Fix

    We’ve looked at the Mitsubishi ASX before, it’s yet another stylish and hip small SUV aimed at people who are just that. It has received some minor upgrades since the last time we checked it out, new wheels, new steering wheel, trim updates and striking LED daytime running lights....
  • At Bathurst: A quick spin in the Ferrari California T

    I took a little road-trip up to the best motor racing circuit on the planet last week, Mt Panorama Bathurst.  The Bathurst 12 hour was on that weekend and I wanted my little man Harri to see race cars for the first time.  The good people at Ferrari were...
  • Honda Accord Sport Hybrid – EFTM Quick Fix

    “Sport” – An athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, such as racing. So how did such a word slip into Honda’s description of its newest Accord and hybrid powertrain? To be honest, buggered if I know. Words such as “luxury”, “premium’ or...
  • Audi Allroad A6 Quattro Quick Fix

    An all-wheel drive European station wagon, how can this be in what is an SUV crazy land? Well it certainly is and what’s more it has earned quite the reputation, now a permanent part of the A6 stable of vehicles after once being a limited run vehicle. It looks...
  • Quick Fix – 2015 Holden Calais V Sportwagon VFII V8

    Ok so we know Holden has gone all out when it comes to the latest VFII Commodore, especially if you’re the type that just must have a V8. A 6.2-litre LS3 engine now adorns the newish front end of the 37-year-old iconic nameplate. It’s damn loud too, with a...
  • Renault Clio RS 200 EDC Cup Quick Fix

    Everyone loves a hot hatch, it’s the old David and Goliath thing. People love the underdog. There’s nothing better than a tiny little fighter that can hold its five-doors high alongside the big boys. We’ve driven the entire Clio range at varying times, but this was our first go...
  • Nissan Pulsar SSS Sedan Series II Quick Fix

    It was a hot hatch favourite back in the 1990’s and made a reappearance in recent times after years of absenteeism, now the famous Nissan Pulsar SSS badge can also be found on the Series II sedan. It replaces the previous Ti model in the line-up and scores a...
  • BMW 118i Urban – Quick Fix – Every bit a BMW for a fraction of the price

    I’ve got a soft spot for BMW, having owned a couple of 3-series I know what they are capable of producing when it comes to handling and quality of finish.  A week in the 118i and all those memories come flooding back – at a much more affordable price too!...
