Hi, Bob Aldons, “The Car Guy”, with my review of the Nissan Navara ST 4×4 Dual Cab. When I started to write this article, War of The Worlds came to mind – here’s a short excerpt from the iconic radio show “No one would have believed in the last years
Ford Ranger Raptor to have a Manufacturer’s List Price from $74,990* ahead of arriving in Australian showrooms in 2018. And plus metallic paint and on-road costs in Queensland, those with DEEP pockets can expect to pay circa $81000. Oh, and that’s before you attack the options list.
At the time I was a franchise dealer, my respect for Subaru wasn’t too high. Of course, they didn’t have a Subaru XV in their range all that time ago but did have the likes of Outback, Impreza, Liberty, and Forester. To me, the range was adequate without being brilliant.
Have our Police Gone Soft on Bicycle Helmets? Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with a comment piece not on cars, but on bicycles and more particularly bicycle helmets. Now, there’s no argument that the weekend warriors in their colourful Lycra wear their helmets. I see enough of them to

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.
