    If you want something on the low end of your budget 5-7k then look at a Nissan pulsar or old lancer (2000) model. You will pick those up cheap. They are cheap to fix and heaps of Parts around.

    I picked up an old done up lancer 2001 model for 4k.
    Also a 1998 pular for 2k.
    Both go well no issue.
    Depends how long you want the car for.

    Ok well I found a Yaris for pretty much EXACTLY what I would get for my Camry....seriously contemplating putting my car up for sale and possibly asking one of my parents for a quick loan of the money until I can sell mine. I would have to go to a manual after having had autos for so long, but to get a car that uses approximately HALF the fuel of the Camry, it's something I have to consider. I can still drive manuals so that's not a problem. Eek, what to do. Oh and the Yaris is in my favourite colour too.

    No, I got an Echo, so basically the older model if what is now a Yaris, have had it just under a year. It's been really reliable and REALLY fuel efficient. I can get about 600 - 700km from $50 worth of fuel, saves me heaps of money.

    However I met DP since that last post and we've got 5 kids between us, so now we're thinking about getting a 7 seater car to swap with mine (he's a tradie so he's got a Commodore wagon for work). There goes the fuel efficient car!! Lol

    We've just bought a seven seater Prius - fuel efficient, stylish and spacious.

    OP we also have a Corolla. I think it ticks all your boxes, and they are very reliable too.

    Is that the Prius V? I so want one....but can't really justify it with only 1 child. How much do you get out of a tank?
