Toyota Fortuner Review

In addition, you just have to push a button to engage the rear diff lock. Combine this with Toyota’s Downhill Assist Control and you end up with a capable off-roader. Internally, the Fortuner had plenty of room, especially in the front seats and first row of rear seats. Even with the driver’s seat positioned well back, I could comfortably sit in the …

New Toyota HiLux Review

Interestingly, the new HiLux doesn’t sound that different to the old one, but on-road noise was definitely lower. I had to keep an eye on the speedo because it was easy to find the car hovering around the speed limit, even though it didn’t feel like I was travelling that fast. A feature of the new HiLux and something I …

Jeep Renegade Review

THE all-new Jeep Renegade certainly provides a shock to the SUV marketplace, particularly in the Solar Yellow duco of the test car I recently picked up from Cricks Mt Gravatt. Through all this the very adjustable and comfortable leather seats were quite supportive and after an hour of driving I stepped out feeling fresh. There is very little not to like …

Travelling Stock Reserves Locking Fishers Out

Living and Fishing on the West Coast

I LEFT my home in Queensland more than three years ago to work in Western Australia, hoping to see more of our country and to fish new places. I weighed up the pros and cons of continuing north or turning around and doing the touristy thing in Perth before flying back to the mine in a week’s time. After a call …

Jeep Cherokee Limited review

If they show up something that close to the car, I’m sorry to say but it’s probably too late for whatever it may be. I guess at very low speed they would be handy for picking out kerbs and other obstacles when parking, but I didn’t notice any difference. The Technology Group package meant my Jeep had park assist, which …

BlackWolf Turbo Lite 450 Tent Review

You then open the side poles so they lock and there you have it – a solid, light structure that can easily be moved around while erected. To fit the fly and front awning assembly you just slide it over and click it into place with the attached straps. Then all that’s left is setting up three poles for the awning …

Mako’s New Grey Lens sunglasses (Product News)

This low colour distortion makes them extremely comfortable over long periods. The traditional downside of a grey lens is it’s the darkest tint and therefore cuts more light out, sometimes making objects in shadows and low light more difficult to see. By carefully manipulating the light coming through the lens, that is, the amount of light able to pass or …
