Used Car Reviews

USED CAR: 2002 – 2006 Toyota Camry

USED CAR: 2002 – 2006 Toyota Camry

By Hafriz Shah Editor This car needs no introduction. Just look around your neighbourhood or shopping centre carpark and you’ll see a few around. It thoroughly outsold its competitors in the same class, most of which boasted better equipment levels and more powerful/modern drivetrains – but did not have a […]

USED CAR: 2004 – 2009 Mazda3

USED CAR: 2004 – 2009 Mazda3

By Hafriz Shah Deputy Editor Built on the Ford Focus Mark 2’s platform, the original Mazda3 has always been blessed with tidy handling. Drive one now and you’ll walk away impressed by its composure through corners and solidity going over bumps. Volvo uses the same basic platform for its S40 […]

USED CAR: 2006 Audi TT

USED CAR: 2006 Audi TT

By Hafriz Shah Deputy Editor  The original Audi TT never quite managed to shake off its image as a ‘car for hairdressers’ due to its soft looks, much to the detriment of its appeal to men who are either too self-conscious to be seen in such a car, or keen […]

USED CAR: Chevrolet Optra

USED CAR: Chevrolet Optra

By Hafriz Shah Deputy Editor While the Cruze is widely touted as Chevrolet’s first ‘world’ car, the older Optra could also lay claim to that title. After all, it was marketed around the world with no less than five different brands pasted on its nose (Chevrolet, Daewoo, Holden, Suzuki, Buick), […]

USED CAR: Ferrari 550 Maranello

USED CAR: Ferrari 550 Maranello

A break from the usual mainstream models this time as we look at thoroughbred Italian exotica – the gorgeous Ferrari 550 Maranello. Arguably the last truly beautiful Ferrari on sale (relentless drive for aerodynamic efficiency seems to have ruined the way newer models look), the 550 Maranello may not be […]

USED CAR – 1st Gen Mazda6

It’s hard to imagine that the original Mazda6 is now close to being eight years old. It looks as contemporary now as it did at launch, with its delightfully detailed lamp housings dominating its appearance at both ends, elevating it beyond others in the same class. The Honda Accord and […]
