ONE TO TRUST

MY DAUGH­TER is toss­ing up be­tween a Toy­ota RAV4 and a Subaru Forester (be­low), with a dol­lar range up to $15,000. Can you ad­vise on choice and re­li­a­bil­ity?

Trevor Wil­liams, email The Forester is more car-like to drive and that makes it our favourite. Subaru is now also Aus­tralia’s most trusted car brand.

FOR­EIGN FORDS

WOULD you know if the Ford T6 ute and the elec­tric car will be made at Broad­mead­ows or im­ported?

Dave Theuma, email They will be im­ported. Ford Aus­tralia is stick­ing with Fal­con and Ter­ri­tory af­ter the failed plan to put the Fo­cus into lo­cal pro­duc­tion.

CITROEN SWAP

WE WANT to swap our 2007 Citroen C3 for a new car of sim­i­lar size. Any sug­ges­tions?

Chris Hal­li­well, email The lat­est Mazda2 sedan has a good boot, is the right size and is a good car.

FO­CUS OP­TION

MY WIFE is think­ing about buy­ing a new Ford Fo­cus hatch man­ual. She is look­ing at the Zetec or the XR5 turbo.

Craig, email The XR5 is a punchy lit­tle job and good enough for one of the cars­Guide team.
