Thought that someone would like to know I spoke to a number of Ford Dealers in Melbourne last week (17/6/2020) trying to obtain a quote on a new Ford Ranger for a Gold Card TPI customer. I’m a new car broker based in Queensland, but looking after customers in New

I went to see Ad Astra on the weekend, but of more importance was the trailer for Ford v Ferrari due for release in November this year. Ad Astra? yea, not bad, not good. I’ve taken the following article from Wikipedia. The last ‘motorsport’ movie I saw was Senna and
I subscribe to www.fordauthority.com, a website that leaks out some of the interesting information from Ford US. I recently was able to find pictures of the 2020 Ford Mustang for a customer. Ford Authority’s Shane McGlaun presented a story of the ‘still under wraps’ Ford F150 EV. Will Ford’s Electric
A famous man once said: “You only get one chance to create a good first impression” and this is my first impression on the new Ford Endura Trend AWD SUV I’ve just taken my Ford Cobra into Torque Ford at North Lakes for a full oil change – engine, gearbox,
Hi Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with a comment regarding the announcement today of Ford’s move to a 5-year warranty unlimited kilometre warranty on all passenger and commercial vehicles.Up until April 30th, 2018, Ford offered a 3-year warranty with some seasonal offerings to 5 years. In fact, my dealer broker division delivered a couple of Ford Ranger’s in mid-April and unfortunately, this small business customer didn’t get the benefit of the 2 extra years. From a manufacturer’s viewpoint, there’s always going to be some unhappy buyers when they draw a line in the sand for anything like this.

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.
