When it comes to buying anything these days opinions matter. You want to make sure you’ve looked into everything that matters to you and haven’t missed anything. The same goes for when you start to look at getting a family car, which for most is a pretty deal. So who’s opinion should you really look for when looking for a family car?
Family, friends and loved ones
Everyone’s got an opinion these days but who should you trust? Family, friends and loved ones are the first ones we should reach out to. Whether you’ve narrowed it down to the list of cars or are just starting out, asking for family, friends and loved ones opinions is a no brainer. They’ll give you an honest opinion, making it easier for you to decide on the cars you should be looking at.
Some may even drive the cars, you’re looking at so get their thoughts on it before heading out to the dealerships. If they’ve got time get them to come out with you. Having someone else there will give you the confidence and extra peace of mind when making a choice at the car dealerships.
With the internet there’s never been more information available to us, when making a choice about our next family car. You’re looking for the opinion of people that drive these cars in real life and put them through their paces.
Since other owners of these cars use them on a daily basis, they try out things such as how many car seats and prams can fit in the car, what are these cars like on the road are there practical and how fuel efficient they are, any problems etc. These are also many of the questions that you might be asking when looking for a new car.
Where do you find owners opinions and reviews?
Owners opinions on family cars are scattered all across the internet. It’s quite difficult to find them all in one place.
Opinions and owner reviews on some of the most popular cars that Australian families drive can be found on the owner reviews section of carloop.
What some owners say about their family cars?
Nick from Victoria, who drives a 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander says:
My wife mainly uses the car to drive the kids around. it is so smooth and offers great comfort on longer trips. on the inside, it feels nice and there is not much road noise when driving it. overall our family really likes this car and i can’t see the need to upgrade it anytime soon.
Jemma from Victoria, who drives a Honda CR-V says:
It drives well and is not too bad on fuel. on the inside, its comfortable and is quiet on the freeways when we go on family trips. we have the 7 seater and with the kids prams, you can only fit a small pram in the boot. once you fold the 3rd row seats, you can put some more things in.
Deb from Queensland, who drives a Toyota Rav-4 says:
We bought the rav4 because of its price and comfort on long drives. our kids have grown but there is plenty of space in the back for them.
