I drive a Honda Jazz 2003 auto... I hate Auto's but have to teach people how to drive... Great car, auto is a CVT transmission which means you have to look after it... It also means near Hybrid fuel economy, slower starts but no "thunk" as Auto's do with their gear changes. I testdrove a Mazda 6 and was so SO Sad, it was worse then my Jazz and my old Camry (other then that a good looking car).

Why Honda? I had a grey Honda Civic 1990ish... Best and most fun car ever. Ford Wheels and a wire in the Racing car steering wheel that we just press on some metal to make a Horn sound. Later put a Mazda horn in for it to pass Rego. Could not kill it including leaving radiator cap off car! Car later died of Rust... So sad. ...

Replaced it with another 1990's Honda Civic. Such a good car, sadly doing 500K+ daily (my dad borrowed it. He killed a Mitsubishi van driving the same workload after 3 or less months.. Civic lasted longer) and car was already clocking over 350,000 it did die. Mechanic said New Transmission and New engine so i said take it away...... Later saw the same car driving around Bankstown, same number plate same Apple stickers. Someone put a new tranny and engine in it and it kept going.

Full admiration for Camry/Corolla's (my brothers Corolla Station wagon did 500k no issues). They rock as cars.

Next car will probably be a hybrid or a tesla (i will upgrade in 4-5 years time). Hope these petrol burners DIE DIE DIE.

2012 Falcon XR6. Was the only non SUV that you could put 3 car seats in the back of.
Next one will be a 7 seater. Thinking of Outlander, but open to suggestions

Depends on your budget Harvey

The 2wd 7 seater Outlander is under $30 k atm

That would be the top end of the scale. I never buy new cars. Demos and new used cars save you a fortune

2000 Mazda 626 - wife has three ruptured discs and cannot drive anything else as the seats slope to much for her back. If she isn't driving she has to sit in the back.

I bought a new commodore in 2009 when Rudd introduced the small business tax break on new car purchases. Still have it and is now due for a 45k service.

Although its like new I'm sweating on another tax break for new cars or a driverless car to come on the market. Otherwise I just keep the commodore till it dies.

Dream car is definitely a driverless car.
