Cars

    We're researching cars and prices etc. We currently have a ford fiesta, before that had a citroen synergie 7-seater which i miss. We're looking at getting a bigger car when we arrive in Adelaide though not necessarily a 7-seater (used to be childminder). My kids are only getting bigger (teenagers) so was looking at a SUV/4x4. Just wanted to know your opinions of cars and what cars you have and are happy with.

     

    Thanks

    As Asil just said. I bought a Ford Territory AWD 1 year old in Melbourne and drove it back. It had to be driven to SA without number plates and with a permit (Australia is only 1 country for sport, for everything else its 5 separate governing states). The saving paid for a 4 day family holiday along the Great Ocean Road back from Melbourne. SA has few people = few cars = higher prices. Don't say you're just off the boat when looking at cars for you'll get fleeced.

    A little off topic, but what happens at regency? ID check (not actually at regency but round the corner), road worthy check (if needed) and away you go, Prices available on the transport site.

    SA has few people+few cars+higher prices?Not sure how you work that one out.You used to be able to pick up a good second hand car very cheaply a few years back when SA had fewer people!:skeptical:

    If theres fewer cars then theres less choice and it becomes a sellers market.

    I didn't have to go to Regency with a VIC car - just to the local police station so they could crawl under the car to see its engine number.

    Not off topic AT ALL, every car bought interstate has to go through the checks at "Regency Park" as its commonly called, plus the SA rego is required within 2 weeks. Its not just a matter of buying it interstate and driving it back to SA.

    Are new cars cheaper interstate? Has anyone bought one recently and if so is there any merit in haggling for better spec etc?
