I’ve admired the Audi R8 range for a long time. Just consider 449kW of power at your foot. Frankly the acceleration of 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds is mind-blowing. I’m driving a car that does the same in just over 4 seconds, but that difference is arguably the length of the
Thought that someone would like to know I spoke to a number of Ford Dealers in Melbourne last week (17/6/2020) trying to obtain a quote on a new Ford Ranger for a Gold Card TPI customer. I’m a new car broker based in Queensland, but looking after customers in New

Arguably the most anticipated launch this year is the all-new Mazda BT-50. Designed in concert with Isuzu and built in Thailand, Mazda owners will gravitate to the brand rather than any other. Mazda’s sense of customer responsiveness will be enhanced by the reputation of the bones of this new ute.
Volkswagen And Ford Officially Sign Off On Landmark Partnership Agreement I found this story on the Ford Authority News website – there’s a link at the end if you’d like to sign up. But my question is this. What is the child of a Ford + Volkswagen partnership really look
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.
