Welcome to 3 on The Tree.
Car reviews, automotive news and more.
Being a family man and married with two wonderful daughters, I have keen interest in in cars normal families would buy.
Keeping that in mind I like to gear my reviews towards how well a particular car handles everyday life, I like see how cars perform in real world situations that families are most likely to experience in everyday life.
That way families can get an idea through my reviews of how well a car may be suited to family life.
Everybody experiences lots of traffic specially in Sydney so while I could go hypermile every car down the freeway to ring every inch of economy out of car. The fuel economy I get is real world what you would expect to get if you had to sit in Sydney’s peak hour bumper to bumper traffic every day, or do short trips back and forth to the shops, picking up the kids from school. I do test cars with the aircon on I’m not going to drive around with the air con off just to make the economy figures look better.
I know manufacturers economy figures are done in a controlled environment and that real world economy figures will vary but when somebody reads one of the reviews they get an idea of what sort of economy they could expect to see day to day.
While I personally have a brand of car I support I like to keep my personal views to just that my personal views.
I love cars in general and see cars as more then just a badge.
My reviews are straight along the line and I review cars on the their own merit and don’t directly compare them to others i’ve tested.
I don’t recommend cars when people ask me what they should buy, I will offer my suggestions on the cars I feel that would suit their situation the best and tell them to go test drive them all and pick the one they like the best.
Everybody has an opinion and what suits me might not suit them. Other then a house a car is the biggest single purchase you make so you should get what you want and what suits you best and only you know the answer to that question.
I have also opened a youtube channel and shortly will begin starting a new video project shortly called Cars and Metal.
More about myself in my spare time During the week i work in the Emergency Department at the Children’s Hospital at Westmesd.
