Hi all, I am looking for some group wisdom on what i should buy as a general day to day run around and workhorse for certain tasks.
Currently have an MX5 for this secondary car but it is no longer practical, and I am itching to change.
Before the pandemic i would have been driving this to our local park and ride train station car park, and leaving it all day as i go to the city. I dont really want want the replacement to be something too expensive or flashy.
I am also fairly DIY'y so something longer/bigger would be handy.
Just looking for some anedotal use cases to see how i can sway my decision.
Currently in the mix
Holden Ute - VE/VF, I like the manual and the looks. Partially handy but not fully. Like the hardtop
Hilux - 4 door, probably 4x4, probably a hard top also
Ranger - 4 door, probably 4x4, probably a hard top also
Subaru Forester - big wagon
Mitsubishi Express - basic van
Keen for any views that others can share with any of the above or others.
