This rollover video shows why the Jeep Wrangler gets a marginal IIHS Rating. Despite ‘good’ ratings for driver safety, multiple rollovers earn the Jeep a ‘marginal’ overall IIHS rating Thanks to Autoweek for this story and particularly Graham Kozak When this new model Jeep Wrangler was first tested in Europe
Autoweek magazine is my go to place for everything that’s heading for the USA and in some cases to Australia as well. This story on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler appeared in my in-box overnight so it’s as fresh as I can provide for you prior to the Jeep crossing the Pacific
Jeep Wrangler has long been an iconic off-road vehicle, not only in Australia but around the world. In the recent round of Euro NCAP tests, Jeep Wrangler shocked and disappointed testers with a 1-star rating. But perhaps you shouldn’t be too worried. According to a spokesperson for Fiat Chrysler Australia,
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with information on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler fresh off the press. I’m indebted to my industry colleagues from Autoweek for this story, the first one since the embargo by Jeep USA was lifted. In fact, Jeep flew a bunch of journos to New Zealand
Hello, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with a follow up from my previous post on the 2018 JL Jeep Wrangler. As I mentioned, some international journalists were flown to New Zealand to be the first to test drive and write on the JL Jeep Wrangler. Can you imagine a better
Jeep has released (almost) all of the details on the new Jeep JL Wrangler at Sema My sincere apologies for the problem with my story on the new Jeep JL Wrangler last week. Gremlins got into my WordPress site and whilst I posted a pic and link to the story

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.
