Hello, Bob Aldons with my review on the latest 4WD Dual Cab to hit the market – MR Mitsubishi Triton. When the nice people at Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited offered me a Triton to review, I told them that I didn’t want the top of the line model. Instead I
7 Seats, luxury fit-out for Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed, Back in the day, I remember clearly when the Mitsubishi Outlander was released for the Australian market. Frankly, it had a face that only the designers (and their mothers) thought was good. My sales manager and I along with our sales team
Any car company that has a 10 month + waiting time for their product can be lauded or criticised. I’ve driven Suzuki Jimny and I think that it should be held up as an example of a price-conscious, do what it says, motor vehicle. Sure it doesn’t have battery power,
It was only a matter of time before Hyundai introduced another SUV into their range. The Hyundai Venue broke cover in New York a day or two ago. The extended Hyundai range world-wide now comprises Kona, Tuscon, Sante Fe, Palisade (not for Australia as yet) and now the new Hyundai
“The fruit doesn’t fall far from the Audi Q7 tree, but passers-by won’t care” Direct from US publication Autoweek, is the first review I’ve seen of the Lamborghini Urus. I’ve just helped a client of a client dispose of his 2013 Porsche Panamera 4S which is replaced by said Lamborghini.
“Strong vehicle emission standards will incentivise manufacturers to bring their EV models to Australia and prioritise their sale, and encourage greater uptake of more efficient petrol and diesel vehicles,” the Greens say. It’s all well and good to want overseas manufacturers to bring their EV or Hybrid vehicles to Australia
March 2019 saw the overall Australian market drop 7.1% to 99, 442. Federal Budget, Federal Election or just a tired market? It’s really anyone’s guess. Here’s The Car Guy’s top 10 Australian Car Brands – March 2019 Highlights included 3 Light Commercial Vehicles in the top 3 selling positions for
It’s a very competitive world in the utility (ute) market. As I suggested in my recent take on the Nissan Navarra ST 4×4 Dual Cab, it’s the most represented segment of the Australian Car Business. Mazda has upgraded its offering with the Mazda BT-50
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.
