Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with my experiences with the Kia Carnival SLi. I’ve been driving this Kia Carnival SLi around for a week and as the week has rolled by, I’ve come to be more comfortable in it than I was on the first day. In fact, as

Hello there. Bob Aldons, The Car Guy. I’m currently testing the Kia Picanto GT Line for Kia Motors. My review will be up on www.thecarguy.com.au in a couple of weeks. However, in the meantime, you can read my recent reviews on a whole range of cars, including the Kia Cerato,
In his iconic book Animal Farm, George Orwell wrote: “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.” – Kia Sorento Sport. So too SUV’s. This Kia Sorento Sport is more than equal to other SUV’s because of one unique feature – a 7-year unlimited kilometre warranty,
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with an updated report and my review of the Kia Cerato Sport Hatch. When I review a vehicle for The Car Guy website, I do so from a buyers perspective rather than just concentrate on speed, steering ability and things like that. After over

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.
