    Will kids be in his car? If so u think look for something safe with side curtain airbags.

    We have Toyota aurion which is six cylinder. Get about 600 km country driving and costs about $80 to fill. Two car seats and could fit three. Reliable

    Dh has a Nissan patrol ute diesel. Kids can't go in it but good work horse for him. We are looking at a duel cab though

    We have a subaru forester and a subaru liberty. The liberty is getting on a bit so we are going to trade it in for an impreza. Always loved my subarus and dh is a whizz at working on the boxer engines. We usually get 550km out of a 50L tank

    I have a Hyundai Elantra sedan, will fit 2 car seats, has a huge boot (considering the car is fairly small) and costs me approx $60 to fill up once a fortnight. Love my car.

    Subaru liberty sedan 2008 manual. Love it. Can be a bit thirsty, but depends on the kind of driving done (city vs open road). A full tank can be anywhere from 500-600 kms?

    Super safe car, reliable and a bit sporty
