Pulled out of buying a golf for the Mrs and the focus is sooty. The golf experienced mechanic put me off with the price to fix if the tranny sensor goes and even the cost of servicing the Tranny which is meant to be done every 20kkm I believe in the older model.
So now Im looking $6-8k, Japanese, preferably NZ new, 10 years old, Id like any Outback H6 but unlikely at low KMs as that was our last car and its surprisingly economical for a 6.
Other than that I have considered Corollas, Ive tried to find decent Mazda 3s but they are all 1500cc and with 4 people and luggage Im put off.
Any other cars worth considering? What happened to nissan, the Tida I didnt like, hired one for 3 months in Aus.
