The all-new Nissan Qashqai will again set the benchmark for others to follow. On Black-Friday, November 13th Nissan announced details of the upcoming All-new Nissan Qashqai Third
The smartest Electric Vehicle available in Australia – Hyundai Kona Electric loses its strange face I recently drove the Hyundai Kona Electric Vehicle and 2 of the three Hyundai Ioniq hatches. Very impressive. And now Hyundai has removed the painted chequer plate nose on the Hyundai Kona Electric and replaced
Today I’m commenting on a video I’ve seen recently about transmission repairs and secondly about the life of electric vehicle (EV) batteries. If you’re as old as me, you might remember a man named Peter Wherret – he of the “Torque” and “Marque” television program aired on the ABC, over
I haven’t been an Electric or Hybrid advocate. Over the last 6 months or so, I’ve had the opportunity to test a few and I’m slowly coming around. This car, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric is another level. There’s no doubt that electric vehicles are starting to create waves. Elon Musk’s
Nissan is one of the first car companies to release a 100% all electric crossover with All Wheel Drive available. Here’s the press release from the World Premiere in Yokohama July 15, 2020: Nissan today revealed to the world the all-new Nissan Ariya electric crossover, marking a new chapter for Nissan
So the nice people at Renault touched base with me and offered to provide four “ cars” for me to review. The Kadjar and Koleos are both SUV’s so I was aware. The Renault Kangoo on the other hand – a small commercial van but running an electric-only drivetrain Hi,
If you’re considering the purchase of an Electric Vehicle (EV), this is a story that you MUST see. I’m Bob Aldons from Car Business and The Car Guy. The place where new car buyers save serious money (thousands) on the purchase of their next new car AND get honest opinions on the cars that
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with an article to do with Wind Turbine Blades and not cars. Look, there’s no doubt that Climate Change is real and those who deny are arguably blithering idiots. But there’s an undeniable truth that until the activists actually come up with a plan,
I’ve scraped this article from today’s Financial Review to proffer a comment. You can read the full story through the link at the bottom of the page or go out and buy today’s edition. Own an electric car? This one’s for you. Arguably, both state and federal governments are coming
“At 60kph, the loudest noise in this new Nissan Leaf EV comes from your heartbeat” Firstly let me apologise to ad executive David Ogilvie for plagiarising his 1958 press campaign for Rolls Royce, (click on this link to read more about Ogilvie and RR ad.) but it’s too good
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.
