One of the closest championships ever – Qatar Grand Prix I said last week that the Formual 1 World Championship “isn’t over till it’s over”. And after the Qatar Grand Prix, that’s more so. Lewis Hamilton drove a magnificent race from pole position and didn’t give anyone else a chance.
The LA Mobility show opens today and undoubtedly one of the stars will be the futuristic Kia Concept EV9 Having just launched the EV6 to great international acclaim, Kia Corporation has stunned onlookers at the AutoMobility LA with the reveal of its all-electric SUV concept, the Kia Concept EV9. Whether
Magnificent. Outstanding. A win for the ages. When Lewis Hamilton was disqualified from pole position for the Sprint Race to determine the starting grid, there must have been a hollow feeling for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team. How could anyone start at the back of the grid, in 20th
A fateful comment by Verstappen after qualifying on Saturday. “I’d rather start from position 3 than 2” And so it proved to be at the lights out for the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix. Verstappen jumped Lewis Hamilton at the first corner, Valterri was pushed out and effectively went from pole
Over the last many years, I’ve represented customers in actions against Ford Motor Company of Australia. Faulty transmissions in their Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus models have caused unforgivable angst for owners. And the attitude of Ford in Australia towards these claims has been deplorable And as someone who worked
When they dropped the mid-screen rear spoiler from the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, they took away some of the objections potential buyers had. That was one of my first issues when the Eclipse Cross launched in Australia a number of years ago. More of a Sportback style, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross slotted
If you’ve been driving around in a small car (think Hyundai i30) or even a medium SUV ( Hyundai Tucson) then jumping into a Hyundai Staria will be a big shock At least that’s been my experience in the week with the new Hyundai people-mover. Hyundai loaned me a new
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.
