Suzuki Baleno GLX Review – The Car That Can

Arguably one of the lesser-known models in their Australian range is their small hatch called the Suzuki Baleno GLX. When I first became a Suzuki dealer way back in 2000, Suzuki was probably one of the ignored BRANDS, but that all changed in 2004 with the release of the Suzuki

Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed Review

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

2020 Volkswagen Golf Here Next Year

2020 Volkswagen Golf – First Pictures From the US, Autoweek.Com provides some of the earliest high-quality pictures of the 2020 Volkswagen Golf. Arguably due to go on sale in Australia in the first half of 2020, this is the 8th iteration of the VW Golf and arguably the best so

Vehicle Recalls

Vehicle Recall – Don’t Buy One That’s Not Done

I was watching Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise program last Sunday (1/10/2017) where a Wheels Magazine person was discussing the 5 worst and 5 best, used cars. For anyone interested, who missed the program, here’s the list they discussed. And as importantly before you take delivery of that used car, make


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.
