We've got a Holden sports wagon and love it ours is a v8 so uses a bit more fuel but I have quite a few friends with the 6 cyl and they think they are great.

we have the sv6 sport wagon and i love it. its series II so has reverse cam/sensor and all the bells and whistels. its pretty good on fuel, i fill up once a fortnight about $80 i live close to work (bout 15 min) but do a few trips to ipswich each week about 1/2 hour each way. its so roomy and good for kids, 3 anchor points on back of back seats so u dont lose boot space and even though its big its like a go cart, nice.turning circle, good to park etc... we got brand new in may 2011 and i still love it 100%

Thankyou guys! Will start looking into them now
did you buy them brand new or second hand?
If second hand, how are they running now? Many repairs needed?

Ours was first registered in May '11 and we bought it in January '12 with 17,000 ks on the clock. Runs really well, haven't had any issues.
I've noticed a lot of Sportswagons around in the past few months - three in our street alone! I think they're getting pretty popular.

We have a 2011 Toyota Prado which is great for us. It fits the two car seats in the back comfortably and the height makes it easy to get the kids in and out, as well as the pram.
The boot space is also great. We don't use the third row seats though.
If we didn't use the 4WD then we would have gotten a CX9. We live in a remote area so a 4WD was a must for us.
The Prado is great on fuel. It is diesel and we get around 1200km per tank.

I drive an 07 Mazda CX7 for work, it's a great ride but if you don't mind whether it's SUV or not I'd recommend a Mazda 6, comfy, fuel efficient and great on space. I have a Mazda 3 which is all of the above but Mazda 6 is bigger and Mazda's are really fantastic cars.
My parents have just upgraded to the new Honda Odyssey from the old one - they absolutely love it and swear by them.

My friend has a mazda 3 and it's a dream to drive but unfortunately no room in the back! Which is a Shame. I don't like the look of the Mazda 6 lately unfortunately cause it is a nice car. I guess the cx7 or cx9 appealed because if there was an a accident I may have a better chance of safety being a but higher up. Not sure I it works like that though! Looking at a new Holden commodore ATM.
