I’ve been in the car business for a long time. Since 1978 in fact. And it still amazes me that new car buyers will occasionally buy based on colour. This Mazda3 G20 Pure Sedan is Soul Red Crystal and it’s one of the very few paint colours that Mazda charges
Mazda CX-8 Asaki – This is just a fantastic car – end of review for the Mazda CX-8 Asaki 7-seat SUV I’m kidding. The new model Mazda CX-8 Asaki is a super luxury 7-seater SUV with every extra (save a sunroof) that you could want or need. And if you’re
It’s a very competitive world in the utility (ute) market. As I suggested in my recent take on the Nissan Navarra ST 4×4 Dual Cab, it’s the most represented segment of the Australian Car Business. Mazda has upgraded its offering with the Mazda BT-50
Justin Timberlake got it wrong in his song. Mazda MX-5 doesn’t need to bring Sexy Back – it has a history the envy of most other roadster manufacturers. This version of the MX-5 continues the history of this amazing and special convertible. “Manufactured at Mazda’s Hiroshima plant, the MX-5 debuted in
Hello there. Bob Aldons from The Car Guy with the Mazda Australia press release on the all-new Mazda3. Mazda has defined the small car in recent years, the Mazda2, MAzda3, and MAzda6 are arguably the best of the list of vehicles in their categories in Australia. There may be cheaper
This Mazda CX-3 Akari is finished in Soul Red Crystal Metallic and it’s a colour that you can almost fall in to. Magnificent to say the least. There are a lot of paint colours in the car market but few are as lustrous as this colour. And as I press publish
If you don’t need a vehicle the size of an SUV, you should seriously consider this car – Mazda6 Diesel Wagon. Hello, it’s Bob Aldons, The Car Guy reporting in from Bundaberg where I’m reviewing the magnificent Mazda6 Diesel Wagon. It’s been frustrating at times on the drive here. Most
Hello and welcome to the latest Car Review by The Car Guy. I’m Bob Aldons, Car Expert, trying my hardest to speak simple English to those of you are who are looking for a new car and in this case, a larger than normal 7-seat SUV. Enter the new Mazda CX-8,
Tom Holland from Throttle House road tests and review the latest Mazda MX-5. And remember this is on the back of the Fiat Abarth 124 Spider review last week. Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, presenting the Throttle House review on the 2019 Mazda MX-5 RF. I had a Mazda MX-5 RF
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,
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.
