Have our Police Gone Soft on Bicycle Helmets? Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with a comment piece not on cars, but on bicycles and more particularly bicycle helmets. Now, there’s no argument that the weekend warriors in their colourful Lycra wear their helmets. I see enough of them to
About 12-14 years ago whilst waiting for my barber of the day to cut my hair (yes it was that long ago and I did have some) I picked up a copy of the Robb Report. CARS AVIATION MARINE TRAVEL WATCH COLLECTOR STYLE SHELTER FOOD & DRINK One thing the
Are we all just prepared to take it? When will someone fix the problem? Fuel Price Rip Off. Over the last six months or so, I tried valiantly to create a Facebook site entitled Fuel Free Friday. The goal was to convince consumers NOT to purchase fuel on a Friday.
VW’s flashy new fastback is quiet and effortless at speed, at least in Euro-market guise – Volkswagen Arteon First Drive Direct from our colleagues at Autoweek, is the first drive report on the Volkswagen Arteon.

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.
