Stamp duty is part of the cost that comes with buying a car in Australia. But what is it? How is it calculated? When does it need to be paid?
Australia is meant to be explored.
It’s a country offering endless driving experiences; leading to unforgettable locations.
But whether you’re planning a scenic trip along the Great Ocean Road or getting ready to tackle the bluebush-mottled tableland of the Nullarbor Plain, long road trips require adequate preparation if they are meant to be successful.
If the i30 from Hyundai was a prizefighter, it’d be one of the most decorated champions of all time. Pound for pound, it’s in a class of its own; with a winning record longer than the 90 Mile Straight.
Reinvented for 2017, the all-new i30 is back and better than ever.
So if you’re in the market for a midsize car that delivers on all fronts, look no further than the i30 from Hyundai. The vehicle that’s been thrilling drivers for more than a decade.
You remember it like it was yesterday.
That new car smelled so good. Everything was clean and creaseless.
Look at it now. Time has got away and it’s lost its lustre.
Let’s face it, it’s easy to fall out of routine when it comes to keeping your car clean inside and out.
But it doesn’t have to be like this.
From the obvious to the obscure, we’ve put together the definitive list of ways you can get your car clean. And keep it that way.
How much do you spend on fuel each year? $4000? $5000? $6000?
No matter who you are or what you drive, there are heaps of little things you can do every day to save big on fuel annually. And improve the fuel economy of your vehicle.
Keeping up the regular maintenance on your car is important for a million different reasons. But there are also a number of key things about your car's overall condition that have a direct effect on the rate by which it guzzles down fuel.
Let’s start from the bottom and work our way up, shall we?
Buying a used car. It makes sense considering your budget. It makes sense considering your needs. And it makes sense to make your used car purchase from a dealer.
Sure. You may find a slightly better price from a private seller. But you’re really rolling the dice.
With private sellers, there’s no statutory warranty. Drive away and five minutes later the wheels fall off? You’re out of luck. And out of options.
Skipping your next car service could cost you more than you think.
We’ve all been tempted to skip a service now and again. Money gets tight. Life gets busy. Not enough hours in the day. You do a few long trips. It happens.
But whether you’re aware of it or not, skipping your next regular service could actually end up costing you much more than you’d think.
Today’s the big day.
Budget plotted. Appropriate financing secured.
It’s time to drive off the lot behind the wheel of that used car you’ve been saving up for.
The deeds are signed. Keys in hand.
But what a lot of Australian car buyers aren’t aware of is the fact that even when it comes to the purchase of a used car, the Government demands a piece of the action.
New. Used. The distinction is obvious.
But there’s a third option out there open to anyone shopping for a car. The ex demo.
And if you’re in the market for a car, having a look at ex demo vehicles might be a way to save thousands of dollars on your purchase.
But what exactly is an ex demo vehicle?
