    We had a 2006 Holden commodore station wagon and loved it. Reliable and great boot space.

    This is what my parents have, maybe slightly newer though, so nice to drive. They got one with dual fuel so very cheap on fuel.

    I'm getting a Ford territory soon, I want something with a big boot, but I hate being in a low car, should be spending around $16k for a 2009 model.

    I have a new Subaru forester and while I love it and it great safety wise I do find its not big enough for us with 2 kids. It's ok for run around but I do find going to the beach or a picnic etc with all the things u tend to take I feel it's to small. Even going to watch the kids at soccer it's not the best to fit bags, shoes, seats, food basket, pram etc just way to squishy. My kids are 4 and 2.

    The 3 seats in the back are narrow. If you have two standard sized car seats in its impossible to fit an adult in the back with them.

    We are now having a 3rd child and will have to sell it. I find it somewhat a little gutless and nothing special on fuel. Great lights, smooth etc.

    But I prob wouldn't recommended it tbh.

    The other day i was parked next to a mum at the supermarket and i was amazed at all she was getting in her boot, she had a mazda 6 and she put her pram and then groceries in with ease and i would have to say its the bigest boot i have ever seen(in depth any way) we have a bmw x5 which is a very large car and she could get more in her mazda 6 then we can in ours.
