We have welcomed our second baby recently and now looking to buy 7 seater. Calling all car enthusiasts and current owner/user to help me out narrow down the selection. While there are many forums are available on OzBargain about this, it didn't help me a lot. Based on my online research I have selected below cars as my initial options. I would like to narrow it down to two cars that I can focus on buying. Budget is around $35k. Any other tips and gotchas on buying used are also welcome.
Requirements: In the order of priority
Good resale value
No more than 5 year old
Better fuel efficiency (Going to be driven 70+ km everyday)
Less maintenance cost
Spacious third row
