Subaru Forester 2.5i-S Review – Why Should You Buy?

I haven’t driven a lot of Subaru’s in the past. As a former new car dealer, Subaru was annoying, to say the least. In my years with Mitsubishi, Suzuki and then Fiat Chrysler and right up to the Volkswagen years, it was particularly difficult to win business from Subaru –

Whats Happened to These New Car Brands?

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,

5 Year Warranty – The Stop Outs are Dropping Out

5 Year Warranty – The Stop Outs are Dropping Out

On June 1st Ford Australia announced the introduction of a 5 Year Warranty and now it’s Holden’s turn. Good on you both. It’s time that consumers had this better warranty. The Car Business demands it. If my memory is clear that now only leaves, Toyota, Subaru, Volkswagen, Nissan and Mazda as the last major players in the Australian car business with a 3-year warranty. These stop outs need to have a long hard look at themselves – the new car warranty has moved on – 5-year warranty is the norm with Kia still the front-runner with 7 years.

Subaru XV-S. Why Should You Buy?

At the time I was a franchise dealer, my respect for Subaru wasn’t too high. Of course, they didn’t have a Subaru XV in their range all that time ago but did have the likes of Outback, Impreza, Liberty, and Forester. To me, the range was adequate without being brilliant.

Subaru Forester – In Their Own Words

The fifth generation of Subaru’s best-selling model, the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Subaru Forester Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), has been unveiled at New York International Auto Show.The New York International Auto Show comes hard on the heels of Geneva but has its own highlights – Subaru has shown the 5th generation of its iconic Subaru Forester. Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy,


Hello and welcome to my new website!

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. 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.
