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,
At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March, Skoda will unveil a new concept called Skoda Vision X. Skoda has come a long way in the last 5 years. I recall when I was a Volkswagen dealer from 2008 till 2015, Skoda and it’s dealers were a bit of a
SKODA KODIAQ is News Corporation’s Car of the Year Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy here talking about Skoda Kodiaq. It wasn’t that long ago when if someone mentioned Skoda, car people would laugh uncontrollably muttering something like “You bought what?” I know from my own perspective as a former
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.
