    Default What cars do you drive or recommend

    Hi all,
    I've taken about a 3 year break from Bub hub, no judging
    Anyways I am going to be needing a new car and I have decided that I am going to by a brand new vehicle.
    Currently I DH old car Subaru Impreza 2007 model
    He upgraded a few years back with a Isuzu D max, (it's manual can't drive it)
    We have two children and they are now 7 and almost 4 so it needs to be something that you is suitable for the kids. No two door style.

    I've got a Ford Territory. Great car. It's got 7 seats which we occasionally use. With the 3rd row seats down the boot space is ginormous which I love. I'm tall and this is a nice big car and extremely roomy and comfortable to drive. I've got the diesel so it's good with fuel.

    I've got the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Love it so much, best car I've ever owned easily. Only 5 seats but with two kids you should be fine with that. Plenty of room. Mine is a 4wd but there is also a 2wd version if that's what you prefer.

    Before I got that we were toying with the idea of getting a sedan and thought seriously about a Kia Optima. It was very nice to drive and had a lot of features for what you pay for one.

    We have an imax (8 seater) we only have two kids, but having the room is amazing. They race bikes, so the bike room is a blessing.
    My (work) car is a 90's 4cyl wagon. I'm looking at a new car upgrade - along the lines of a Hyundai accent hatch or kia cerrato hatch. We don't do boots. Too much stuff.

    I've been driving a corolla sedan for work and absolutely freaking love it.

    Roomy with good boot space and a decent price.

    Anything Kia. They have a 7 year warranty, 5 start safety ratings, bells and whistles without the price tag and seem to always get car of the year in their category for at least one of their vehicles. We have a Sportage and a Rio. Can't fault them. I was very anti Kia a decade ago but I'm a convert. Avoid VW like the plague.
