2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross When the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross first launched in 2018, I wasn’t a fan. I thought the shape was extraordinary, but not in a good way. Since then other manufacturers have released similar-looking vehicles – BMW’s X6, Audi’s Q4, and Mercedes-Benz GLA to name a few all have
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
As a Mitsubishi dealer from 2000 to 2012, Mitsubishi Triton was one of the strongest selling models in the line-up. Fast forward to 2019 and the new MR Triton is arguably the best selling model Mitsubishi has in Australia. Most of my readers will know, but for the new

Hello, Bob Aldons with my review on the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross LS SUV. Mitsubishi is one of the few manufacturers to have an entrant in all the SUV categories – small, medium, large and full size. ASX, Eclipse Cross, Outlander, Pajero Sport and Pajero give Mitsubishi the most comprehensive SUV
Hello, Bob Aldons with my review on the latest 4WD Dual Cab to hit the market – MR Mitsubishi Triton. When the nice people at Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited offered me a Triton to review, I told them that I didn’t want the top of the line model. Instead I
7 Seats, luxury fit-out for Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed, Back in the day, I remember clearly when the Mitsubishi Outlander was released for the Australian market. Frankly, it had a face that only the designers (and their mothers) thought was good. My sales manager and I along with our sales team

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.
