    The Ford territory is great. We have a new diesel though so fuel is probably better in ours than the older ones. Biggest space inside. My only issue is that the rear seat is not split so both seats have to be up at the same time so only room for my stroller not my good pram if all the seats are being used. My Mum has a brand new Captiva and they are poky and gutless. I can't even fit my stroller lengthways in the back behind the rear seats when they're all up. And no way are 3 carseats going in the third row. They have two narrow booster seats and no room in the middle for anyone except a small child. The Mazda CX9 is lovely but I doubt you'll find one in your price range. Good luck!

    My odyssey is 12 mths old now but we just took the grandparents to Australia Zoo on the weekend, so 5 Adults and 2 kids. It has seperate air-conditioning zones, sat nav, reverse camera, 5 anchor pts, easy to drive with good fuel economy. But I choose it based on the fact we wouldn't need 4wd as dp has one.

    Haha glad you found another great car! We live in the country on a dirt road so we need a big sturdy 4wd with a bull bar in case any skippies jump out

    Oh very interested in this thread. I love the look of the VW touregs but also mazdas. Dh likes the land rover discovery. I guess we will be test driving them to work it out and seeing fuel consumption...seeing the original post I realise these are a bit more than you wanted to pay.

    Wouldn't that take up all boot space?

    Apparently there's a 7 seater version if the Skoda Yeti coming out. They sit at around $25k brand new for the base model.
    I think they're ugly, however in saying that its meant to be a very good, versatile and safe car.
    Its had awesome online reviews.
    Top Gear took it to do reviews on it and laughed at it, put it through the wringer and now they rate it as well!
    DH has been looking into them as he thinks its a great car - I just can't get past the shape. Looks sort of like a land rover disco?

    I think the reason people say not to go brand new is that as soon as you drive it out of the car dealership, they lose so much value so therefore you lose a lot of money. It's the same with any car, always better to go second hand.
