Travelling to OZ, I need a car!

I will be in Sydney in January and need a cheap car to get me around the country. Please give me some ideas on what type of car/jeep I should be looking for. Is $3,000 AUD going to be enough? I reckon most my driving will be on highways.

Many thanks

$3000.00 will be well enough to get you a reliable car for sure!

one of my mates from the uk came down and bought a car for less than that and its reliable and got him from a-b-c-EVERYWHERE!

look in the public trading/secondhand papers- there's loads to choose from!

my husband and i just bought a toyoya hilux for our business with close to brand new chunker tyres for $2500.00!!! with reg and roadworthy certificate!

goodluck mate!

Hi Alex, I recently bought a second hand 1993 Ford Laser and it cost me $3,500. I drove it from Brisbane to Sydney and back and it handled the trip fine. It's a small car but it's been very reliable. I don't know about Jeep's though, sorry.
