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
This Mazda CX-3 Akari is finished in Soul Red Crystal Metallic and it’s a colour that you can almost fall in to. Magnificent to say the least. There are a lot of paint colours in the car market but few are as lustrous as this colour. And as I press publish
Tom Holland from Throttle House road tests and review the latest Mazda MX-5. And remember this is on the back of the Fiat Abarth 124 Spider review last week. Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, presenting the Throttle House review on the 2019 Mazda MX-5 RF. I had a Mazda MX-5 RF
On June 1st Ford Australia announced the introduction of a 5 Year Warranty and now it’s Holden’s turn. Good on you both. It’s time that consumers had this better warranty. The Car Business demands it. If my memory is clear that now only leaves, Toyota, Subaru, Volkswagen, Nissan and Mazda as the last major players in the Australian car business with a 3-year warranty. These stop outs need to have a long hard look at themselves – the new car warranty has moved on – 5-year warranty is the norm with Kia still the front-runner with 7 years.
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy waxing lyrical about the Mazda CX-5. There is no doubt that Mazda builds fantastic vehicles both in terms of style, handling and quality. Mazda has added new technology to its CX-5 to maintain it’s market share in Australia as other brands continue to chase the leader. The Mazda CX-5 is the most popular SUV in Australia.
There’s now more to love about one of Australia’s favourite cars, with the stylish Mazda3 upping the ante on entry grade models, going on sale this month.

New Mazda6 Unveiled at Los Angeles Motor Show Hello. Bob Aldons, The Car Guy reporting on Mazda6 at the Los Angeles Motor Show, opening to the public on December 1st. When I started in the car business in February 1978, Mazda was but a small player in Australia. Shortly after, late

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.
