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
After a COVID-19 missed race in 2020, the Grand Prix season returned for the 2021 US Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas. And what a race it was. With Max Verstappen on pole, Lewis Hamilton on-grid place two, it was always going to be a battle for the
The 2021 Turkish Grand Prix. What a drive by Max Verstappen. Pole position and apart from the pit stop was never headed. And such a great result for Max as he finishes his time with Mercedes AMG before heading to Alfa Romeo. Lewis must be congratulated for his 5th place
“You’ve come a long way baby to get where you’ve got to today” Philip Morris used this famous line in the 1960s to market their product, but it applies equally to Hyundai and particularly the Hyundai i30 N that I’m reviewing. And I’ve got a very particular opinion on this
The 2021 Russian Grand Prix. It was Norris’ for the taking. His crew was begging him to come in and change to intermediaries and he said emphatically NO. Wiser heads in the Mercedes AMG Petronis team prevailed – Lewis Hamilton ignored them once, but when Bono said Lewis “Box Box”,
What a race – from the first corner at the Monza circuit, Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo took the lead and apart from his pit stop was never headed. Congratulation Dan. The 2021 Italian Grand Prix is a major Formula 1 win on your resume. Of course, there were two other highlights
Start to finish, massive Dutch crowds in a sea of orange – Max Verstappen rewarded his home country supporters with a magnificent race from pole position. Frankly, the Silver Arrows team didn’t stand a chance with pure race speed and despite efforts to undercut Verstappen and Red Bull twice, it
It was the wettest of races for the 2021 Belgium Grand Prix at the Spa Circuit this weekend. After 2 laps behind the pace car, Max Verstappen was awarded the race, George Russell for Williams in 2nd and Lewis Hamilton on the third step. Fortunately for the Mercedes AMG team,
Before I read this story from autoweek.com my guess was the podium most expensive cars sold at auction would be a Ferrari. And I was right, but not only did Ferrari hold the coveted number 1 spot, but also took out 10 other places in the top 20, including the
I’ve just purchased a 2017 Range Rover Sport as my personal car and as usual, I’ve gone to the market for a quote on my car insurance For anyone reading my new car reviews on The Car Guy, I always get a quote from at least one of the companies I
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.
