    We have a Toyota prado, bit more than your price range but some older versions might be around the 20k mark?

    I love my car and I will never ever buy a different model. Toyotas are just so reliable plenty of room, I can fit three car seats in the middle and two in the back.

    It's funny isn't it! I had a Toyota Prado 2011 model until early this year. It was a work car and then I changed jobs so we bought a Mazda cx9. I never thought I'd love any car as much as my Prado, it was amazing! But I have been super pleased with how wonderful the Mazda is, in a lot of ways it is even better for our lifestyle than the Prado (we didn't need a 4wd as DH has a hilux, was too high for grandparents to climb into etc). So even though I thought I'd never love another car, the Mazda has come close, if not equal

    I love my odessey. 5 anchor points tho probably only use 4 at the one time. I can fit 7 ppl in the car and my P&T tandem pram in the boot.

    Its fuel efficient well mostly. Get 7.8-9L per 100km. This is city driving

    If you have a good warranty on the captiva then I would get one. You really can't beat its value for money. 7 seater, lots of extras and alright on fuel. They have a small boot but you can always lay one of the seats flat in the back for pram and shopping.
    I have 2 CX9's and love them. Awesome car, drives well and has a decent boot space but you pay for the fuel and they hold there value so probably wouldn't pick up a 2nd hand one under $25k.

    I'd love one of these two! I would mind a forester either.

    I like the look of the new Hyundai Santa fe, does anyone have one? Also can you buy a 7 seater with a fair bit of boot space??

    My friend has one and she says it goes through a lot of petrol. Hers is an older model, though.

    Biggest boot space I have seen is in tribeca or cx-9
