ANCAP

Isn’t it Time to Say No? – ANCAP 2 or 3 stars isn’t enough

In recent times ANCAP, the Australian Safety Rating Authority has rated three vehicles at 3 stars or less. International car manufacturing behemoth, Ford Motor Company, presented their Mustang for testing. ANCAP results gave it two stars as it did with Chinese made vehicle Great Wall Steed. Now ANCAP has announced

Why Should You Buy – Land Rover Discovery Sport

A while ago, an industry colleague of mine handed back his Land Rover franchise. Just found it too hard to hit the numbers that made for a profitable business. Fast forward to 2017, and he must be kicking himself that he didn’t have the patience for the bounce back of

Ferrari

Is Ferrari making an SUV? Say it’s not so Sergio

It happened with Maserati, and Lamborghini, could it even happen with Ferrari? Rumors circulating overseas and particularly a report in Car Magazine UK suggests that a variation of the GTC4 Lusso may have all wheel drive architecture with a petrol V8 hybrid engine. Seems that Sergio Marchionne has commissioned a

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.

I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.

thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .

And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.

So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
