Our last car was a commodore, as us out current one.
We LOVE them. Never a problem.

Barinas are cheap for a reason it's a freaking daewoo with a Holden badge.
I have a new corolla and it fits my 2 kids very easily in the back.
Mazdas are very good too and I think slightly better on boot space.
Yaris is pretty small. Hondas are not as small inside as you would think but corolla has slightly more space.
Are you financing the car or just cash?

Oh and you can't compare a barina to a commodore.

On boot space - in our Mazda 3 sedan we can seriously fit 2 bodies. Not what we use it for, but yeah. Can fit lots. OP, if you're interested in it, I can take some photos of our mazda for you to get an idea of size on the inside.

Just a side note - the Holden we have and the one my parents had as mentioned earlier were religiously serviced and well maintained and yet we still had all the issues mentioned.
So for all those who alluded that regular services and maintenance may stop the issues.... Well, the feedback speaks for itself.
Yes, servicing and maintenance *can* prevent or detect issues, but in crappy cars, you can kiss your money goodbye.
I work in an industry where I deal with cars on a daily basis and I've had an overwhelmingly high amount of people say how much they hate Holden and would never buy another.

rainbow road- Thanks. No rush. What year is it?
Thanks guys, I will keep trying to convince DH for no Holden. Need to know that what we get is going to be reliable. Will get him to have a look at reviews. Definately don't want to do Barina.
Going to talk to DH about going 2nd hand and getting something we know should be reliable.
Still like Toyota Corolla - I hired it for a week last year and it was nice to drive. Small compared to our current car but not too small and even the hatch boot is huge compared to our current boot!
I want to look at the Toyota Yaris sedan too just in case it's not too small. Could probably find an ex-demp or low km sedan for $18k
Looks like I should be able to find a Corolla Ascent (don't really mind hatch or sedan) easily say maybe a 2009/2010 model for about $18k.
Mazda 3 is on the list maybe a 2008? not sure about how many km's to consider looking up to.
We adjusted the budget to see what we can get for $18k total for minimal finance or maybe next to nothing if we get a decent trade in.
Might look at Nissan's too. Our old one was really good. Had it for years with no mechanical drama's. Was still running well when we traded it in too.
Will look at all the other suggestions too.
What about Hyundai's or Kia's? Yay or nay? I have never been fond of Ford's, don't know why.
