Most of Tegans morning commutes are only around 20 mins but on weekends the car generally get driven for at least 2 hours per trip, the dpf shouldn't be an issue with the way we will use it but it was definitely something we considered.

    Shouldn't be an issue but let's hope not. Diesels have become way to delicate and highly strung these days..... time for a Petrol Hybrid mate

    Never improved the passenger vehicle diesel after the TD42T. Just operational comppromises after that. Serious.

Talked her into looking at mid to larger SUVs as the boot space is a big factor for us. First stop was Hyundai, took the Santa Fe for a test drive, it was nice but the boot wasn't too much larger than her i40 and it had features we didn't need like the extra two seats. Went past Holden... Kept driving lol. Went in to Nissan, the only diesel they sell is the X-Trail - too small, and Navara, went to Toyota, only diesel they sell is the Prado - too big, or bigger. Went to Subaru and I reckon we struck gold. Took the new outback for a test drive, 2L turbo Diesel, ask the bells and whistles, came well below the santa Fe, the size was great, the warranty is the same as Hyundai, Tegan felt instantly comfortable driving it. Time to sort out finance and looks like we'll be picking one up pretty soon. Couldn't find much/many bad reviews about them online, has anyone had any experience with them or heard anything about them?

    Why diesel Nic? We are soon to be looking for a new ride for Catherine. Edit : Nevermind. I just read your response...
    I was looking last night at a few different cars and the RAV4 have a 2.5l hybrid option. 160 kw engine and a mileage range of over 1100ks. 4.7L/100 too. @Hodge he's got a new Outback. Bloody nice car. Not sure what motor though.

    See above mate, it's just our pick of the bunch, I know they are losing favour but with a 5 year unlimited km warranty I'm not concerned, we will more than likely trade up at year 4 anyway
