Jeep pickup truck apparently will be named Jeep Gladiator – Russell will be pleased. Scrambler sounded like something you’d have for breakfast, anyway Hi Bob Aldons, former Jeep dealer with comments from autoblog.com on the forthcoming Jeep Wrangler Pick Up. Years ago, I travelled to the USA (Florida actually) for a
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with the Throttle House review on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Back in the day when this shape Jeep Grand Cherokee was released onto the Australian market, I drove one as my private car. Initially, I chose a 5.7 Litre Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
Hi there. Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with a piece on the 2018 Jeep Cherokee. Practical Motoring did a fairly extensive review on the 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. If you’d like to see what they had to say, there’s a link at the bottom of this article. But to summarise their
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with some scurrilous information about some of the new car brands that I had in a previous life. From 1978 to 2015, I was as a salesman, sales manager, general manager and the owner of new car dealerships including Ford, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Chrysler,
There’s no doubt that the new front of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee was one that its mother could love – and when I say mother, I mean the design team and the folks who signed off on it. I remember Mike Manley’s comments that the new design would provide the
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with information on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler fresh off the press. I’m indebted to my industry colleagues from Autoweek for this story, the first one since the embargo by Jeep USA was lifted. In fact, Jeep flew a bunch of journos to New Zealand
Hello, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with a follow up from my previous post on the 2018 JL Jeep Wrangler. As I mentioned, some international journalists were flown to New Zealand to be the first to test drive and write on the JL Jeep Wrangler. Can you imagine a better
Jeep Wrangler gets more engine options and off-road capability than ever before — and it should be nicer on-road to boot I’m a Wrangler fan. Since 2003 when I took on the Chrysler Jeep franchise here in Redcliffe, through Northstar Motor Group, there’s never been a vehicle to compare. And
Jeep has released (almost) all of the details on the new Jeep JL Wrangler at Sema My sincere apologies for the problem with my story on the new Jeep JL Wrangler last week. Gremlins got into my WordPress site and whilst I posted a pic and link to the story
3rd May 2017 – Update Given the significant numbers of people who have viewed this story, particularly on LinkedIn, I think it’s appropriate to update you all on the progress. On May 2nd, I finally found someone within Fiat Chrysler Australia who would listen carefully and actually follow up the
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.
