Nine News reporter Brigitte O’Brien interviewed me for this story that ran on Nine News on Tuesday 21/3/2023 New Car wait times seem to be getting worse rather than better, at least for some brands. A client of mine ordered her Kia Sorrento back in May 2022 and I’ve just
By Shaun McGowan – CEO and Founder, Novated Lease Australia Until recently, not many people outside of tax accountants and company payroll officers had heard of ‘fringe benefits tax’. Now though, it’s the talk of internet forums, barbecues and water coolers up and down the country. The reason? A change

I’ll be upfront from the start. My company, Northstar Motor Group, was one of the first Chery dealers in Australia in 2011. I kept the franchise for just under a year. The J1 and J11 models that were launched were a major dissapointment from the first car and our sales

Channel 9 News in Queensland approached me recently to comment on the incidence of odometer fraud on used cars Late in 2022, Queensland Police raided a business in Logan. They were looking for people winding back odometers on fairly late model 4WD’s and SUV’s, And they determined that up to
I heard the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport before I saw it when collecting it from Hendra. There’s no doubt in my mind, that the Mitsubishi is pretty old technology when it comes to its engine. A very adequate 2.4 litre diesel engine still makes a lot of noise when you’re outside.

Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!
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.
