You’ve no doubt read the story about Goldilocks – the beds, and too soft, too hard and just right. So the same applies to Nissan’s range of SUV’s – Juke, Qashqai, X-Trail, Pathfinder and Patrol. There’s a size to fit anyone. And now that Nissan has extended its warranty to
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with yesterday’s press release from Ford Motor Company announcing the return of the 2020 Ford Fiesta ST to Australia. Now, first things first. I am NOT a fan of Ford’s passenger range, even though that’s where I started in the motor industry in 1978.

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.
