Damager:
Looks like a Toyota?


Hmm, should I have covered up the reflection in the window?

So which Toyota? Any guesses?

Viewing from my phone so can't really see anything in the reflection.

Looks like a mid sized wagon so a Corolla? Not sure if they still do that model. Otherwise a Camry or Aurion the only other late models that might fit :D

Bigger than a Corolla. And not a Camry or an Aurion. Can you get the Aurion as a station wagon?!

You'll find that it's pretty much a Kiwi only thing to use the Soo Bar Roo pronunciation, it was one thing I really noticed when I arrived from the UK along with Mar-own for maroon. FFS you don't blow up a Ba-lown


When I went to Australia for the first time. I thought it was a joke when they pronounced it soobiroo and thought it was so it could rhyme with kangaroo. Then came back to NZ and couldn't convince anyone that soobiroo is the correct one haha.


the yanks also say soobiroo, we are the aberation.

Most outside NZ and AU pronounce it Soobooroo.  We had a Jap working with us and that's how she pronounced it as well..

Fixed... we Aussies don't say soo bar roo.

In fact, we get a giggle when they say it on motorway patrol. (yeah, we get that on FTA TV)

The previous model was a let down to the Toyota reliability name, but I believe those one's aren't so bad.

My current car is a Nissan Stagea, RWD not AWD. But I miss my Isuzu Mu. The Nissan doesn't swim or hop rocks as well as the Mu did.

But I've never bought a car for it's speed, I only buy them for towing stuff, actual practical reasons.
