Vehicle recommendation for something with very limited car knowledge

I currently drive a toyota Rav 2 door. It is the perfect size for my small garage and tight drive and it is a great height and has great storage/boot room - easy to get stuff in and out. But it is a 1994 model and although I haven't had any big problems yet, I realise I need to start looking for a replacement. Problem is I have no interest in cars except to get me from A-B. So any recommendations on vehicles that would similarly fit the things I like best about my Rav would be much appreciate... 4 years ago

Vehicle recommendation: People mover

Our 2000 Honda Odyssey has just died (drive splice broke, resulting in diff and transmission failure). We need to replace this with a reliable, much newer people mover. What would you recommend reliability-wise? Is it worth spending the extra and getting a toyota Highlander? 5 years ago

Vehicle recommendation: People mover

Hi there, The toyota Highlander is a great vehicle, it has a V6 petrol engine and may not be the most economical. There is new Mazda CX-9 if you want the ultimate vehicle for the job. Others include the Mitsubishi Outlander, Kia Sorento, or Nissan X-trail for more SUV type 7-seaters. 5 years ago

Vehicle reliability

Hi there, We've not received any complaints about this vehicle through our motoring channels/ However this could be due to the fact that it's a bit of an enthusiasts car, it's based on the toyota Soarer, which was a pretty reliable car in its day. 4 years ago

Vehicle to suit lifestyle

I'm struggling with which car to buy next. I need it to tow a boat, and require large boot space. I had narrowed it down to a Ford Territory and a Lexus RX300. The Lexus is a lot more expensive for a smaller boot (want to do a lot of camping but could put things in the boat or trailer) but it's not so 'plasticky' inside. Loved to drive both vehicles and decided on the Ford because of price, but petrol costs worry me. I loved driving the toyota Prado (3rd choice) and it would suit our fa... 11 years ago

Vehicle Year

Hi there, We recently bought a "2009" toyota Yaris. The WOF report that came with it indicated that it is 2005; this is also shown when I put our numberplate into www.rightcar.govt.nz. I have read that the year is determined based on the 01/01/07 date. Does this mean the car was made in 2005 but not registered anywhere in the world until 2009? I do not understand what 2005 could mean. Thanks. Simeon 9 years ago

Vehicle Year

It sounds to me like this car is a 2005. On the registration label on the windscreen there are 2 dates. The first will say something like "2005 toyota Yaris" and below that there is another date when the car was first registered in New Zealand. It will have the month and year, so for example it might say 06/09 if the car was imported and first registered in NZ in June 2009. A car that was sold new in NZ will have 06/05 for example. So, a few questions about your car; What are the dates on t... 9 years ago

Vehicles for towing Caravans

If you are going to tow the caravan on a regular basis then Diesel is the way to go for me. Towing that size van with a petrol vehicle will drain your fuel tank faster than you believe or are use to. Clearly this is where Diesels shine. A couple of possible options would be the Hyundai Santa Fe and the toyota Prado. A low mileage Mitsubishi Pajero 2.8litre is another possibility. I agree with your comments on age but also try and find a vehicle with a proven service history and the lo... 10 years ago
