Any car company that has a 10 month + waiting time for their product can be lauded or criticised. I’ve driven Suzuki Jimny and I think that it should be held up as an example of a price-conscious, do what it says, motor vehicle. Sure it doesn’t have battery power,
When a particular model in a brand’s range hasn’t been available for a while, you can expect that it will be difficult to get one let alone at a good price. So it is with the new Suzuki Jimny. My local Suzuki dealer just this morning (21/3/19) told me that
Konnichiwa, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with a press release from Suzuki Auto Co in Brisbane. Most economical small car to own and operate – Suzuki Swift of courseI’ve been a Suzuki advocate since taking on the Suzuki franchise way back in August 2000. Back then my business partner and I acquired Redcliffe Mitsubishi and Suzuki at Redcliffe from long-term owners Alistair Stewart and Roy Elkington. The Mitsubishi part of the transaction was pretty easy to justify, Suzuki not so much.
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,
6,000,000 is a big number in anyone’s language. And that’s the number of Suzuki Swift sold around the world since the launch of the model in 2005.I was there as a Suzuki dealer in 2005. Suzi and I went to Japan to see the plant where the Swift was built and enjoyed the hospitality of senior Suzuki people. One thing I can say without question is that Suzuki is well and truly committed to building a quality car and looking after their customers. Their passion is unquestionable.

Suzuki S-Cross SX4 Turbo – Road Test and Review Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with my first impressions on the Suzuki S-Cross SX4 Turbo SUV. When I first jumped in the driver’s seat, I’m wondering whether it’s just a scaled-down version of the Suzuki Vitara – the one that
The Mt Cotton Driver Training Centre was the launch site of New Suzuki Swift. Back in early 2005, my first look of the then remarkable Suzuki Swift was at the Suzuki factory in Hamamatsu, Japan. The internet, in its pretty early life, was not friendly to providing information as it
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.
