We are a family of 4 who is really into camping, diving, traveling etc. Will be arriving in august but researching so I can prepare a budget to buy. I am trying to be as prepared as possible :)).
I am looking at carsales.com.au and have a few questions:
1. Do we need a 4*4 car to get to good camping/diving sites in adelaide regions or will a good station wagon do the job?
2. Also are used cars good in adelaide? Up to how many KM? Used cars i had experience with (but not in australia) were usually a piece of junk as people start selling when cars fall apart so I am a bit wary of buying used. What do you think used versus new?
3. How much as a percentage can we haggle off dealers from asking price 10-20% maybe?
4. Best car brands to buy for resale value and spare parts availability?
PS I have to add that car prices are ASTRONOMICAL in australia.
