It's blue so I try to tell him it's nice and "manly" it's my old car and it still has the tweetie car seat covers on it.. What??.. They were on sale! I swear
The number plate has the letters LAM so now all of his mates call him "Lamie"
My Dh does boxing as a hobby so its a funny sight seeing this big guy in a wee little car... But he was the one who insisted on selling his Car to save money when dd was born.. So I can secretly laugh all I want :lol:

Well we just bought a 'Dad' car a couple of months ago, but it doesn't fit your list at all except for price ($11,000). But DH is ecstatic with it, a 1996 Landcruiser wagon, to tow his motorbikes and go camping and 4 wheel driving with. Fraser Island here we come!
He hasn't had his 'own' car for 10 years now as he always has had a company car, so he is very chuffed.

It all depends...on him and his job. We have very unfriendly family performance cars but it works for us.
The I30 seems to be popular with non car enthusiast or non 4wd dad on a budget. I hate them lol but most of the dads driving these seem happy

We also have a set of my family stickers on the back..
I put them on before I was even pregnant so it's just me, Dh, and the fish
Dh was walking out of the shops one day and was about to hop in the car.. A group of young kids drove past and yelled out the window "Nice car! BEEP BEEP BARINA"
Hahaha Dh was NOT impressed

I'd def go for a Mazda. DP has a 3 and I have a CX7.
The 3 is awesome on fuel and holds great value. Also because everyone has them, parts and services are cheap.

DH has a 2006 Toyota Kluger Grande which is worth about $25000 now. There are earlier & standard models which would be more in your price range.
I drive a sedan but when I need to drive his car to take the dogs somewhere I really like driving it! It literally feels like you are driving a normal sedan, but just sits slightly higher on the road.
Speak to any mechanic or person who knows cars, no one will doubt Toyota for quality & reliability.

I think his pick of the lot so far is the Mazda 6 wagon. Unfortunately he prefers the newer ones (post 2008) so it might add up to a bit more but I'm hoping he'll get a decent amount for his current car so we'll only be out of pocket $10k or so.
