Mazda3 Pure Sedan

Buying a New Mazda? 2019 Mazda3 Pure Sedan – Review

I’ve been in the car business for a long time. Since 1978 in fact. And it still amazes me that new car buyers will occasionally buy based on colour. This Mazda3 G20 Pure Sedan is Soul Red Crystal and it’s one of the very few paint colours that Mazda charges

As one of the first Isuzu Ute dealers in Australia, back in 2008, I have a very soft spot for the company, and particularly the Isuzu MU-X. Hi there, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with my review on the 2018 Isuzu MU-X LT-R. I’ve been tripping around South-East Queensland for

WayMo information than ever before – Self-Driving Cars

The Fate of Self-Driving Cars Hangs on a $7 Trillion Design Problem Waymo One is the world’s first self-driving taxi service. Just two rides in, and we’re already bored of the future.

Welcome!

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.
