Should I Replace my Camry Wagon with a Subaru Forester?


Hi John,

We have to replace our old Toyota Camry wagon and are looking for a similar car maybe a Forester or similar maybe one with a few kms on it, something under $30,000, I need large boot space , I am an artist and carry lots of paintings and art materials. A text message is preferred as I am hard of hearing.




Hi Don,

Sorry mate - I don't do epic texts. The Forester is a good car. Great engineering, probably enough rear luggage space for your gear.

Go to for make and model variants in your price range - you probably don't want the turbo one. There will be heaps of low-kilometre Foresters around for that sort of money, still under warranty - it'll be a buyer's market, so use or to find the car you want.

Make sure you use my used car checklist by clicking here. It'll help you avoid the most common used car buying pitfalls.

Good luck,
