Long story short we are a single car household and need a new ( to us) car. We have coped with 1 car but will need a 2nd car before our 1st starts school in 4 years. The convince of 2 cars would be handy.
New car is needed as family is expanding ( will ttc for #3 in a few months).
our current car is 13 years old and starting to show signs it will have costly repairs soon ( cost more than the cars worth). Fuel economy is 13/14L per 100km. It's also 6 cylinder so rego is more.
Option 1 is get new car and keep existing and just drive until it dies and be a 2 car family now
Option 2 trade it in ( only likely to get 2k) and remain single car until we need a 2nd
