    DH drives a Toyota Corolla to and from work (about 120km a day)- it is so so good on fuel and it will just keep going and going, and they hold value well. Purchased it when 12 months old for $15000. Our family car (with 3 car seats in the back) is a 2003 (I think) commodore station wagon- a little heavier on the fuel for sure, but we have never 'upgraded' as it just goes and goes and is extremely reliable with huge caged boot area. I would love a second hand BMW X5- in my dreams lol.

    I drive a Mazda 6. Do lots of short trips and suburb driving and still get 600kms to a tank.

    Dh drives a land rover defender (an old army truck). He loves it...the rest of us aren't so sure though.

    Our Mazda 6 (luxury sports) we got off ebay for $5000. Husband builds and restores cars for a hobby though so just make sure you get someone to have a look over it.

    I have a 2007 Nissan Xtrail. Love my car. Great to drive and good on fuel.

    DH has a 2006 Nissan Navara diesel. Given the fact it's a tank it's very economical (due to being diesel).

    Dh's commute car is a Suzuki swift. Was a great purchase. Cost us 7000 and uses no fuel. Also rego and insurance are a lot cheaper. Bit squishy when he has any of the kids in it, but still fine.

    I love my Rav. I have a 2007 model, with a bunch of extras like Sat nav etc and it's fabulous. So versatile, comfortable to drive long distances. So spacious in the back and you can fit pretty much anything in there with the seats dropped down. It's reliable - we've driven from Sydney to Darwin. And then about 18 months later back from Darwin to Canberra towing a boat each time with no worries.
    If I had to complain I'd say it bothers me that theres a bit of a lag between putting your foot down and it revving up and going.
    It costs me about $70-80 to fill and I get about 450km doing short about town kind of trips.

    I have a '11 Toyota Rukus. I LOVE it. It's a small car but I'd big inside. The boot fits a double pram and a fn with of groceries, and three kids across the back seat. I get about 500-550km out of a tank, which costs $65-$70. (I think the tank is 50-60L, it's the same as a camry)

    They cost $35,000 new, mine is 3yrs old and id get approx &$19,000 for it now.

I'd never ever ever own another Holden again, maybe I just had a lemon but I spent sooooooo much money keeping it going. Dh is a fan of Japanese cars, they're much better quality.
    I've said this before, but I'm so jealous. I loved my skyline, but couldn't fit two kids in, let alone three so had to sell it. It didn't skip a beat in the 4yrs I owned it, and the turbo it pretty awesome
