I've heard all the jokes so bugger off you lot...
Last weekend we went away with the little one for the first time and it cemented our decision to buy a larger car. We enjoy touring the country and camping and plan to do more of that in the near future when Benji can crawl around in the mud.
We are looking for an automatic, economical, spacious but small SUV or large station wagon. One key feature I would appreciate is adaptive cruise control although it's not a deal breaker.
So far my search has centered around the Subaru range - Outback, Forester and Liberty. I've also identified the VW Passat as a possible choice. Although I would love the R36, they are a little too old and not the most economical. I'm also weary of servicing costs associated with the other Euro marques, not to mention their higher price tags.
Looking to spend around $30k in the used market.
Any suggestions other than the Subaru range?
