    Default Cheap small car

    I third the Yaris. I don't own one but have a couple of friends that do. Reliable, economical, capped servicing and toyota currently have 0% finance on brand new models.

    Love love love my Yaris!!! Seriously cannot say one single bad thing about it.

    Great to drive, great fuel economy, reliable and just an all round great small car.

    Mine is 4 years old now and apart from services I havent had to do anything to it. Runs like a dream.

    Do they have anchor points for restraints?

    Default Cheap small car

    I have a Nissan Tiida hatch, 2011 model. I've already done 30,000kms and not a single issue. I really like Nissans

    I'm a previous owner of Toyota's and they were all pretty trusty.

    Wow thanks for all the suggestions will put more research into the ones mentioned.

    It has to be auto, second hand or new as long as very good reliable condition, it doesn't have to be a powerhouse but still nice to drive, air con, cd, anchor points. Price $5,000-$10,000 preferably cheapest. Good with petrol. Thats a good point about safety rating! Did I miss any questions?

    Ohh, really? Hmm. See, I bought a Camry a few months ago because my Volvo was very unreliable. Unfortunately the Camry is such a fuel guzzler It's been very reliable, but costs a lot to run, it averages 12.7 L/100km with city driving...ouch!

    Only trouble is I can't really afford an upgrade right now, even to an older model as my Camry is a 2002 model. I'm having to just limit the use of my car and use public transport.

    I'm hearing you. I seem to be putting ridiculous amounts of fuel into my camry. I love how reliable, comfortable and roomy it is though. We have been talking about looking at a hybrid one day...in the distant future when we have 2 bob to rub together.
