It’s a very competitive world in the utility (ute) market. As I suggested in my recent take on the Nissan Navarra ST 4×4 Dual Cab, it’s the most represented segment of the Australian Car Business. Mazda has upgraded its offering with the Mazda BT-50

2019 Toyota RAV4 vs 2019 VW Tiguan – Battle for the Best Compact SUV I’ve commented before that Thomas Holland from Throttle House is one of the best car reviewers I’ve heard. He tells it like it is – whether that’s good or bad. In this review, Thomas and
Isuzu D-Max – Just one if not the best turbo diesel dual cabs on the Australian market. So you want to be a tradesperson (Tradie) – besides the gear, you’re going to need a ute and the Isuzu D-Max is the one. Hello, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with my
As one of the first Isuzu Ute dealers in Australia, back in 2008, I have a very soft spot for the company, and particularly the Isuzu MU-X. Hi there, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with my review on the 2018 Isuzu MU-X LT-R. I’ve been tripping around South-East Queensland for
If you can put up with his whining pommy accent, Mat Watson provides a comparison that will interest all of you who’ve either purchased a dual cab ute recently or are in the market for one. Whilst this is based on the British version of the cars in the headline,
The Fate of Self-Driving Cars Hangs on a $7 Trillion Design Problem Waymo One is the world’s first self-driving taxi service. Just two rides in, and we’re already bored of the future. So, I’m sitting here after reading this article by Mark Wilson and contemplating whether I’ll see self-driving cars in my
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.
