  1. Hi all, We will be arriving in Melbourne on the 5th January and one of our first tasks is to buy a car. Apart from actually buying the car, what else do we need to organise along side it....or does the dealer do it all? ie car insurance, registration, road tax? I just want to be as prepared as possible. Also, has anyone recently bought a car through carsales.com.au or any other firms/sites? What were your experiences and do you have any tips? Cheers in advance Andy
  2. Hello, sorry for cross posting (also put this up in PomsInOz.com). We’re selling our trusty steed which has been very reliable and ideal for our time here in Australia. We are however at the end of our 1.5 year stint and need to sell up. It’s a Toyota Corolla Wagon (small estate) first registered in 2006. The mileage is high at 224,500km but it’s just passed a service with flying colours. Has full service history, comes with a roadworthy certificate and registration (rego) until May 2013. For more details send me a message and I can email you. We’d love to let it go to a new comer and help them out with an easy car purchase since this is what stressed us out the most when we first arrived. Oooo, can also throw in a Melways for free - the map of all maps (even has play areas & BBQs marked on!!). Great family car or second car and is very useful for moving things around with the large boot. We live down in Aspendale and ideally it would be free to go late August. Here are the specs: [TABLE=class: cms_table, width: 100] [TR] [TD]Make[/TD] [TD]TOYOTA[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Model[/TD] [TD]COROLLA[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Model Variant[/TD] [TD]ASCENT[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Series[/TD] [TD]ZZE122R[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Year[/TD] [TD]2006[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Body[/TD] [TD]4D WAGON[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Engine Size[/TD] [TD]1.8 (1794 cc)[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Fuel System[/TD] [TD]MULTI POINT F/INJ[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Cylinders[/TD] [TD]4[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Driven Wheels[/TD] [TD]FWD[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Standard Transmission[/TD] [TD]4 SP AUTOMATIC[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Standard Features[/TD] [TD]Airbag Driver, Air Conditioning, Central Locking Remote Control, Cloth Trim, Engine Immobiliser, Power Mirrors, Power Steering, Radio CD/MP3, Seat belt Pre-tensioner[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Seating Capacity[/TD] [TD]5[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Highway Fuel Consumption[/TD] [TD]5.4[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]City Fuel Consumption[/TD] [TD]7.8[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Towing Capacity[/TD] [TD]1300 kg[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Tow Bar & Cable[/TD] [TD]Yes[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE]
