Can you recommend a reliable station wagon?

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Aug 2016

As a rule European cars become more and more unreliable as the years pass and the kilometres climb, and they are expensive to repair. Your best bet is to go for an Asian brand, Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Kia.

Buying online and best options for downsizing from CRV?

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Jul 2016

Buying on-line requires the same careful consideration as buying from anywhere else. You certainly don't buy sight unseen; always see the car for yourself. Be wary if the seller suggests meeting in a public place, or at night, or somewhere that might make you suspicious. It's always worth having someone else with you at the time. If you want something a little more exciting you could look at various European brands, Like VW, Renault, Skoda, but in saying that I need to add that the Asian brands like Honda will generally be cheaper to run and maintain than the Europeans.
