    Honda Oddessy, although price is probably out of your range although you could look for a second hand one. It's very good on fuel, 7 seater. I love mine

    Default Re: Need a family car

    We have an 05 elantra hatchback. Massive car inside. We've done numerous dump runs, house moves etc. Takes a strider the plus groceries no problem. Takes 3kids all in seats across the back (our friend borrowed it and used it for her 3 kids)

    I love it.. It's a bit older but great size for us

    Jeep patriot turbo diesel. Excellent on fuel, drives well and has a decent boot. Could pick a second hand one up for well under $20k now

    We got a 2011 Nissan X Trail this year. It had only done 20,000 kms and was in great condition. Huge boot. We paid $21,000.

    Our family car is a 2005 commodore station wagon- can't fault it in terms of space, both inside and in the boot. I can drag the pram, bikes etc in and out of the flat boot with ease. Second hand, you could get one very cheaply. Our other car which DS uses to get to and from work is a 2010 Corolla- best car ever- and was fabulous with 2 kids, and it uses no petrol, well, markedly less than the commodore. But, now with 3 kids, the commodore is our main car.

    We have a Ford Territory, and I love it.
    It is a great family car, very roomy, comfortable, not to big or small.

    Mazda 6, Toyota Corolla, ummm... Apparently the newer Hyundais are far better built and more reliable than they have been in the past.
    If you're looking for an economical car, the larger Falcons and Commodores are good if you do a lot of distance travel but not so great economy wise on stop start traffic.
    Some of the SUVs that are around now are just as economical as a smaller car but more space than a medium sized family car.

    I have a 7 seater. The third row seating folds into the boot space, and the second fold down. The boot is big when the 3rd row seats are down
