What is the best 4WD for $15000?
I'D GO for the GQ Nissan Patrol. It's tough, plenty of parts are available and everyone knows how to fix them. I don't have any real problem with the Jeep, though early ones were poorly built and rather rudimentary with a small cabin.
Going out on patrol
THE MQ is really getting a little long in the tooth, so I would recommend you think about a GQ, though you will find it hard to fit one within your budget. Going by your description of the sort of driving you will be doing I would advise against the Patrol. It sounds like a very expensive way of getting to the city, ferrying the kids around and going shopping, with only an occasional weekend away. Go for a regular car -- it will be better suited to your needs and be less expensive to run. If you must go for a Patrol, buy the 4.2-litre petrol GQ.

YOU could tow your outfit with a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel, but I couldn't recommend the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel GU Patrol because there are too many reports of engine problems. They seem to have problems running at high loads on the highway. See this week's used cars report.
