What's a a good family ute for $12,000?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Mar 2016

With your budget you’re looking at quite an old model, particularly if you want a 4WD dual-cab ute. You’d be looking at something around 2007-2008, but my concern with vehicles that old is that they will have done quite a lot of kilometres. If you want a dual-cab ute, and it sounds like the best option given your needs, go for a Toyota Hilux diesel. The alternative is an SUV, such as a Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota Prado, but again you’ll be looking at older models.

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Jan 2015

A rear-wheel drive model would sell for $10,000-$13,000 depending on condition, a four-wheel drive model would sell for $13,000 and $16,000, again depending on condition. With170,000 km on the odometer, yours would likely be at the high end of that range, if it were in tip-top shape.
