What Car do you Drive..?



  • @:

    This thread is perfect timing! We are looking to buy a new car - just had a new Bub.

    Looking for a midsize SUV- looking at either the 162kw vw Tiguan r line,or the 110kw discovery sport. Any others we should consider in the 55-66k range?

    Also looked at the jag e pace, problem with the jag and discovery is once you add extras the price rockets out of budget - without the options the are quite a basic car

    I have driven lots of 4wd’s and suv’s generally. My wife currently owns the Nissan xtrail 4wd. I’m really happy with it. Tows better than my Landcruiser.
    For my money, if the plan is to actually do any 4w driving, Toyota, Nissan, and Isuzu are the only ones I’d even consider.
    Personally, I wouldn’t get a VW. Owners I know have had electrical problems with them in the tropics but it might be different down south where it’s cooler and less humid.
    I wouldn’t own a discovery. I drove one for work and didn’t like it at all off road, though it was fine on the bitumen.

    09 SV6 Commy

    Thinking of getting a new Subi impreza

    Got one…two weeks back

    Happy with it Ink? Looks pretty trick, good shape.



  • Yeah very happy… Has a CVT transmission which took a little getting used to… Eyesight safety feature which is a bit of a pain in the bum I turn most things I can off… Stop/start also annoys me… Lots of techno gadgetry I’m still getting around but I’m loving the fuel economy compared to the 3.6L commy.
    Very nice comfy car.



  • If I ever went away from Toyota I’d probably buy a Subi, either that or a Camaro.

    I have a 2017 model Isuzu MUX. Previously had a VM Multivan which I loved, but I am really impressed with the MUX too. Just getting used to less space….

    I got the Minister for Finance and War a new MUX for her birthday in February.
    I’m trying to convince her to let me get a Ford Focus RS Limited Edition.

    There’s always the new Renault Megane RS hatchback if that doesn’t work out.





  • Just picked up a brand new KIA Sportage, top of the range - supplied by work. I know nothing about cars but this one has all the toys. It literally drives itself - steers, brakes, accelerates. It’s amazing!!

    That’s where it’s all heading… Not sure I like it

    It’s weird - the auto steering actually fights you when steering. I only have it on when on the freeway

    Did you get the 2 wd MUX or the 4 x 4? Does she like it?

    Haha…mive doesnt have that.
    I should probably get into the habit of leaving the collision avoidance ON. Its a bit annoying when you feel the brakes applied gently going down ramps in carparks etc. The eyesight sees the bottom of the ramp and assumes its an obstacle

    I think it’s only fair I brought her a new car, so I can buy myself one.
    Don’t know if it works like that!!!

    4X4 LS T yeah she loves it.
    When they first came out I told her that this was going to be the next car because the D max motor is one of the best Diesel motors around (That’s why Holden called theirs the Dura-max to fool people) and Isuzu drive train has been proven over a lot of years.
    Plus $20K cheaper than Toyota equivalent.
