    Since deciding to TTC, i sold my much loved V8 Holden Ute but my hubby bought me a Subaru WRX Impreza, so im happy again! Plentyyyyy of room for just the one, plus the boot is huge! Fuel also good, only costs me $60 to fill up and that lasts me nearly 2 weeks (bout 500 kms city driving)

    We also had a V8 commodore ute which we swapped DH''s dad for his Falcon sedan. Now we got a VU ute and I get the Hilux back so we're selling the Falcon. Feel safer driving the Hilux. And i'm not a fan of driving autos (Falcon's auto$

    I dont have a licence yet (still on my learners). We have never actually owned a car, as neither of us have had a licence until now. But we are getting for 7 seat Ford Territory. I was looking at a Honda Jazz, but then realised... we will need a 7 seater as we will have DD1 and DD2, plus number 3, plus my 14 year sister in law who we have become guardians of. We went for the Territory because we found it was the only 7 seater that actually had a fair bit of boot space with all 7 seats up- enough to fit the pram, shopping etc in. Its not my first choice in car (I would rather a small little car like the Jazz or Getz), but oh well lol

    We had a 6 cylinder Ford Fairmont that my husband loved but had to upgrade because of car seats, so we have a Toyota Tarago which has SO MUCH ROOM compared to the other one- 8 seater which can fold into a double bed in back. But he misses the grr of the other

    We have an 2006 XR8 (so a v8) and a 2008 Nissan Patrol (4 cylinder diesel) and one child. We get better economy out of the XR8 averaging 11l/100k on the highway and around 14L/100km out of the patrol

    We have a 6 cylinder Toyota Kluger which we upgraded to from a tiny Mazda 2 hatch just before DS was born 10 weeks ago. This car gets driven occasionally through the week and on weekends. DH car is 4 cylinder Subaru Liberty which he drives to work. We will not be downgrading as the Subaru is very economical anyway and we will not upgrade as we don't need anything bigger than the Kluger, if we buy a newer vehicle, it will be the same size as the Kluger as we will be having another child. We have one of each type of vehicle I guess and we try to use them the most efficiently ie DH wouldn't use the Kluger to drive to work cause it would use more fuel, but it's good for me to use to duck 5 mins down the road to the shops with DS.

    We have a Holden Astra for our family of 5- with 3 car seats in the back row (professionally fitted). We hardly use our car (15000 km in almost 5 yrs) so the idea that we'd need to upsize when pregnant with #3 seemed crazy.
    Down the track I'd love to be driving a Mazda cx-9
