2020 Nissan Patrol Ti-L. Bigger is Better

The 2020 Nissan Patrol Ti-L has recently launched and believe you me, it’s a whole lot of luxury truck for nearly $32,000 less than a Toyota Landcruiser Sahara. When I was a Toyota and Ford dealer, back when there were almost NO high rises in Redcliffe, no-one really liked the

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed Review.

I asked Mitsubishi Motors Australia to give me a drive of the 2020 Outlander as soon as it was launched and I’ve just collected an Exceed variant with a diesel engine. Frankly, I’m pretty partial to Mitsubishi and particularly the Outlander. My cousin Julie has recently taken delivery of a

Jeep Wrangler Gladiator Revealed Prior to LA Motor Show

Most manufacturers are sneaky. They have internal leaks – just like politicians leak – when they want the automotive community to know what they’ve got planned. It goes something like this. “Hey Joe, it’s, Mike Man … well, you know it’s me, Joe. Just wanted to let you know that

Hello and welcome to my new website!

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. 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.
