Today I’m commenting on a video I’ve seen recently about transmission repairs and secondly about the life of electric vehicle (EV) batteries. If you’re as old as me, you might remember a man named Peter Wherret – he of the “Torque” and “Marque” television program aired on the ABC, over
I haven’t been an Electric or Hybrid advocate. Over the last 6 months or so, I’ve had the opportunity to test a few and I’m slowly coming around. This car, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric is another level. There’s no doubt that electric vehicles are starting to create waves. Elon Musk’s
Make no mistake. Every German company wants to conquer the world in every facet of their business. Pre-dieselgate, Volkswagen was convinced that they’d be the number one manufacturer of automobiles. They saw the need to tamper with the emissions on a range of their cars and this was no small
Hello there car lovers. Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with a Throttle House review on the Tesla Model 3 Performance. I’m a fan of Throttle House – I think that Thomas and James have enough levity and seriousness to be one of the better review sites around. Love the intro
“Strong vehicle emission standards will incentivise manufacturers to bring their EV models to Australia and prioritise their sale, and encourage greater uptake of more efficient petrol and diesel vehicles,” the Greens say. It’s all well and good to want overseas manufacturers to bring their EV or Hybrid vehicles to Australia
Let me be very clear at the outset. I enjoy driving. I own a BMW M3 and drive and test cars for Mazda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Kia, Volkswagen and shortly Jeep. So I’m a bit spoilt for choice, but I still like driving. So let’s assume that we had autonomous cars
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.
