    Default Help me pick a car

    Im going through settlement with ex and he's getting my car back and I'll need to buy a new one.

    I've never purchased a car on my own before & have no idea what to get.

    Ideal world = less then 12k price tag, less then 100k traveled, must be auto, must be roomy, must not be low because I have a steep drive way/dont want it bottoming out. If it's economic on fule & upkeep thats a plus. Only have 1 x 5yo dd in booster in the back.

    Oviously I'm buying 2nd hand for 12k.

    My current car is a big 4WD so I couldn't stand a small hatch back of anything like that. Hoping for an SUV.

    Any suggestions?

    My last car was an xtrail. Brilliant car. Ticks all of your boxes. I recently sold my 2007 model with 110000 on the clock for $9000. So for $12000 I think you could find one matching your criteria. They're a popular car so there are always a lot for sale.

    Have a look at car sales dot com dot au
    You can put in a lot of different things for searches and may find something perfect.

    But I've never gone and looked for my own car lol. My dads always gone and picked one for me and I test drive and then said yes or no.

    Good suggestion - I highly rate Nissans (I've owned 2 of them).
