Posh Astra with the private buyer's engine of choice: Any good?
Review of Vauxhall Astra Hatchback Elite 1.6i by Kpjwateridge

Advantages: Roomy, excellent refinement, plus interior trim, smooth gearbox
Disadvantages: Miserable engine, wallowy handling, daft equipment specifications, high list price

Vauxhall Astra Elite 1.6i 115bhp What kind of car is it? The Vauxhall Astra itself is a little bit of a hidden gem. It's a name that for decades has invited a snigger from anyone who knows anything even remotely interesting about cars. Thi ... Read review

Car seat hell - Corsa
Review of Vauxhall Corsa Life by Lemonface7

Advantages: none
Disadvantages: you will be in pain for some time

If you are petit then this car seat will break your back, don't try it, the adjuster sticks and the seat is so long you can't bend your knees, the sides are steeply tapered so you can't move your legs or straighten your back. Murder painful, refuse this i ... Read review

Getting to grips with Korean hatchbacks
Review of Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi (since 2011) by Kpjwateridge

Advantages: Extremely frugal, good build, generous equipment, strong engine, good road manners
Disadvantages: Lifeless steering input, historic brand image, no real performance version

Hyundai i30 What kind of car is it? The kind of car you see anonymously driving down the middle lane of the motorway. The kind of car that momentarily catches your eye due to it's sharp styling then you notice it's another mid size hatchba ... Read review

The i30 creates far more road noise than its competitors - a trait shared with Kia models too. I always put it down to decidedly second rate Hankook tyres that they came fitted with as O.M.E, but, a couple of days in a Rio with top notch Continentals on it proved that my theory was wrong, it isn't the tyres, so has to be down to either the suspension bushes or scrimping on sound deadening on the floorpan. However, as you pointed out in the review, their diesel engines are well above class competitive, meaning that they run quietly - leaving the more annoying road noise as a source of irritation.

Part time owners review
Review of Honda Deauville NT650V by Kpjwateridge

Advantages: Willing motor, excellent build quality, well equipped, cheap to buy and run
Disadvantages: Obstinate in corners, Dreary image

CONTEXT: The Honda Deauville is our family's "spare" motorcycle (after the Yamaha FZ6S2). It's the bike that's abused and beaten, not really an awful lot looked after, ridden to work in the horrible weather conditions etc etc. I'm nigh on 20; been riding ... Read review

America is another country; they do things differently there
Review of Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD by jerry6525

Advantages: Price, Handling, Driving Position, Power, Presence, Technology,
Disadvantages: Vulnerability to pointless comparisons,

There are many reasons why you might buy a 4x4. I shall leave you dear reader to consider the variations. There are only two reasons why you might buy a Jeep: (1) Because it is American, or (2) despite its being American. That's it, simple: no more ... Read review

Disadvantages: Could do hairy blokes out of business

Review of Europ Assistance by ClaudiaVe

Advantages: none
Disadvantages: they took your money and then say you are not covered by their insurance

Welcome to Ciao and a great start. They are a good car. I however, lost someone in a car accident in a Saab and for that reason my judgement on these cars is clouded. They do have a large fan base though and a good rust and realiability reputation. by LiveMusicLoverLyn

Vauxhall Zafira 1.9 CDTi 120 Design - a tool. Nothing more.
Review of Vauxhall Zafira 1.9 CDTi by sirodar

Advantages: Very large boot, huge interior space, looks good
Disadvantages: Nasty engine, unrefined, average spec, heavy in town, stone age DPF system

I bought a Zafira 1.9 CDTi 120 because I wanted a decent size car to transport my children, to carry large items, and be useful for holidays. And if I were to base the review on just these three parameters, then it would be a decent buy - however there ar ... Read review
