    Default 7 seater car suggestions.

    Hi all,

    I'm looking at upgrading my car, I currently have 3 carseats crammed in the back of a little older ford laser. I was I am looking at 7 seater cars and I was really wanting a Holden captiva until I have read some bad reviews (if someone on here can tell me what they think of them that would be great!). Can anyone suggest a good 7 seater? I can't afford a lot I have just over $7000 saved so I will have to get a small loan, thinking $10000 loan, to make up the rest. I know that doesn't leave room for a lot. It will obviously Won't be a brand new car!

    Tia.

    I have been researching this for weeks! We decided on a ford territory 7 seater. We didnt want a 4WD and needed a car that had anchor points in the back row. Waiting on bank approval now. ( few issues with that!) Not many have the 5 anchor points so we settled on the Ford. How many in car seats do you have? I've been advised by many to avoid the Kia even though they fit all our needs.

    Yes don't go for the Holden captiva. It's a daiwoo car with a Holden badge with no grunt and issues. My pick would be a Mazda

    Grand carnivals are ok. We had just the carnival piece of crap. I now have an old Holden jackaroo which is 1000 times better go figure.
    You can always get extra anchor points added
