Over the last 6 years, I’ve helped a lot of my customers purchase new Mazda vehicles. And in that time, I’ve had zero complaints from those customers. Some own their 3rd consecutive Mazda, so this story about Mazda is right out of the blue at least from my perspective. It
Hot new Hyundai KONA N SUV joins growing line-up of high-performance models There’s no doubt that Korean car manufacturer is taking it up to the Japanese and Europeans. Hyundai’s first performance model, i30 N is a stonker of a car and track approved unlike most other hot hatches. And 2021
Limited-edition 100th Anniversary model headlines segment-leading Mazda CX-3 updates for 2021 There’s one thing that most manufacturers do very well and that is to slip a ‘limited edition’ into their lineup from time to time. Too many and it denigrates the brand, a limited few helps to lift the brand
Ai Captain – we’re locked and loaded in the new Mazda CX-9 Azami Le – Ai. It may seem extraordinarily expensive for ‘regular’ SUV buyers, but those European wannabes should look closely at this new 2021 Mazda CX-9 Azami LE when it arrives in early 2021. Quite simply it has

Buying A New Car – Here’s my Review on the 2019 Mazda3 Astina Hatch So rather than just power, torque and other technical terms, I’m providing information that a typical new car buyer is looking for. Hi, I’m Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, bringing you up to date opinions on
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
Mazda 6 Tourer review: Soul Red Crystal – Arrive in this and you feel special I’d normally, as I do, share interesting articles from the web on cars and auto stuff. Unfortunately, seems that when I try to share an article or story from The Australian, they (News Limited) want
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.
