Good morning OzB community!
I wanted to get your thoughts around a new SUV (or if perhaps used/dealer used might be the smarter choice).
In terms of my situation, new parent with 2 golden retrievers, I'm ideally wanting a car big enough that I can put both the dogs and the pram in the boot (sorry this rules out a Camry!).
I'm open to a used car, but doesn't seem to be that much cheaper from doing a quick look around + peace of mind with new + warranty.
The Mitsubishi Outlander or Eclipse Cross is what has initially caught my eye for my budget that will fit my needs, with the Outlander being the bigger of the 2, but the Eclipse Cross having nicer tech/interior.
I've had a quick browse at others but nothing else caught my eye, but want to cover off my bases and make sure there isn't anything I should be taking another serious look at.
I'll be test-driving in the next week or two, I'm upgrading from a 2004 commodore so everything is going to feel outstanding in comparison!
Lastly, I'm currently working from home full time, but imagine this will change once Melbourne returns to normality, driving around 70km a day once I'm in the office.
Appreciate your thoughts!
