In all honesty, I don’t think there’s a bad car sold in the Australian car market – there certainly were some, but the current crop in 2020 is arguably as good a bunch as I’ve ever seen. So I was pretty pleased to jump into the MY21 Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain

Ai Captain – we’re locked and loaded in the new Mazda CX-9 Azami Le – Ai. It may seem extraordinarily expensive for ‘regular’ SUV buyers, but those European wannabes should look closely at this new 2021 Mazda CX-9 Azami LE when it arrives in early 2021. Quite simply it has

Launched in the USA early this year, the Hyundai Palisade takes the mantle of Hyundai’s flagship model. At over $80,000 with the diesel option and AWD with metallic paint, it’s the most expensive Hyundai ever launched for the Australian market. So will the Hyundai Palisade sell in the numbers that
You know it’s coming. There has been plenty of ‘spy-shots’ of the new model 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander due later next year, but this is the first ‘official’ pic released by Mitsubishi Motors. Expect to see the new model in the flesh after the online reveal in February. December 11, 2020
10 November 2020: Mitsubishi Motors today announced pricing and specifications of the new-look and better-handling Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. While a very competant car inside and on the road, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross was, at least from my viewpoint, a bit on the forgetable side from the rear. Seems that the

Here at the bottom of the world, Australia, we miss out on some of the better new cars that are available in other countries. Why? Like the new Jeep models announced yesterday, the rest of the world, apart from South Africa, Australiasia, and some other small nations, all have Left
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.
