    Default Cheap small car

    Jensha, the Getz definitely falls I to that category.

    Look up the 1.6L sx model. 4 door auto, 2 anchor points and you'd get it for under 10k. (Mine is 2007, has a 4 star ancap)

    Just make sure you buy one (or any car really) with a full log book history . Also get rac to do a check, they're worth it!

    I have a 5 year old Toyota Corolla and I LOVE it. SO cheap to run and even though nothing has gone wrong with it yet, very cheap to fix too. Parts are really cheap because there's so many of them around.
    They're very safe, although the boot space leaves a little to be desired if you have a huge pram like us *chuckle*.

    I've been told by a VERY fussy Ford owner that works as a hyundai salesman that the newer hyundais are now great cars. The quality has really been upped because people weren't buying them.
    Hyundai realised that and decided to do something about it so that really fussy Ford owner is now considering changing his gas guzzler to a new hyundai which apparently is heaps cheaper to run.
    I haven't driven one myself personally so I'm not sure what they're like to drive.

    If you can find a Toyota in your price range, you can't go wrong

    I owned a Hyundai Lantra for 10 years, it was an awesome vehicle, very economical, not only for fuel, but also maintenance, standard servicing and tyres etc, didn't have anything go wrong in 10 years I had it and it was 5 years old when I bought it. It's still going, my DH still sees the guy that bought it and now flogs it as a work car with no issue. The new ones have only improved.

    Can someone with a Yaris tell me, are the anchor points for child restraints in the ceiling of the car? I've been looking at them on a car sales website and can't see the anchor points in them, so I assume they are in the ceiling...is that right?

    And I had horrible experience with the Yarris. But that was the first Yarris' they released in Australia. Drove from Lismore to Coffs in one, and at 85km an hour I thought I was going to end up in the cane fields!

    Don't they just? I had every intention of buying a second hand swift, but they were so expensive! Just a couple of thousand cheaper than brand new. Ended up getting a brand new one!

    I'm leaning towards a Mazda 2 😃👍 but still have a lot of research to do!
