    I have keep names out of this thread for obvious reasons, but recently I've watched a number of videos on YouTube posted under the auspuces of an "auto expert".
    Those videos cover a few years and in the earliest ones, the person concerned comes across as a forceful, if opinionated, voice putting forward his views.
    His latest ones though, are the ravings of a demented crackpot. He swears, a lot, calls Australia "straya" and absolutely ruins his arguments with his ridiculous, over the top opinions. I think he's losing his marbles and I wonder how anybody could ever treat him seriously. I sure don't. I'm sure you know who he is. What do you think?

    Sorry mate. Lack the knowledge to do so. Chech you tube under auto expert. There are plenty of bids. It's the Aussie on you need.

    just don't watch Cadogan or whatever his stupid name is.

    stop rewarding him with views.

    I don't watch his stuff as a habit but to me, it's clear that he has lost the plot completely. Not just opinionated now. A dead set nutter.

    he certainly is an interesting character , just a rant of cliche's and soundbites , a poor mans Jeremy Clarkson , difference being Clarkson makes sense and is genuinely funny

    Just had a quick look at one of his vids shitcanning manufacturers of most cars sold in Australia - only a matter of time before they take him to court. Seems most of the opinions and arguments aren’t properly founded and will negatively impact on the sales of these companies.

    Not what I’d be doing...

    I couldn’t listen for more than a minute - he presents a very one sided view it seems.

    Yeah, I wonder how he gets away with it. Some of his rants are too stupid to watch for more than a minute or so.

    No one likes listening to nut jobs for long. He's lost the plot completely.

    The videos are to promote his website for getting a better deal on a new car.

    Yeah.

    With that theme in mind, I do really like the CarWow videos and reviews. Naturally entertaining, informative, critical where necessary. Also linked to a website that gets you a better deal on a new car.

    The two approaches are chalk and cheese. No guesses for which is the cheese.

    We use carwow reviews when we are choosing hire cars for holidays.
