We have been here a week now and need to find a car as we are currently hiring one. Any suggestions for the best place to purchase one. We are a family of five and ideally need a five seater which can convert to seven seats as two of the our children are cricket mad and need ample space for cricket gear. Cant afford a brand new car can anyone suggest some good honest dealers as we are totally unaware of best places to go. Any help would be gratefully received.

Hiya, Welcome to WA, crazy, busy times for you, hope you like the heat! Try gumtree. http://perth.gumtree.com.au/ Ive bought all the cars we've had off here and had no probs with any of them. I get a mechanic mate to give them the once over first though. That is a service you can pay for through RAC I think. Simon

We went to John Hughes in Vic Park and can't fault them, not overly pushy salesmen expect to negociate about 10-15% off the ticketed price after the salesman has begged his manager for a 'special one off discount' for you. There are also a selection of dealers in Wangara just off Wanneroo Road behind the shiny new car garages. We have not used them so no reccomendations here.
