Default Best used station wagon

Hi,

I am new to the forum, and am seeking advise on buying a used station wagon.

I am looking at spending $7,000(Australian) I think this should get me a 1998-1999 model, and the idea of a station wagon appeals to me as I never seem top have enough space in my boot.

I don't want a really big one, I'm erring towards the mazda 626 (4 cylinder) or I really like the look of the volvo V40 (I promise not to be too much of a volvo driver)

Anyway my criteria.

1.First & formost, I need something reliable. I don't want be be having to do anything bar fill it with water and change the oil.
2. If something does go wrong, I don't want to pay half the cars value to have it fixed.
3. Economical (my current car is a huge ford falcon, and costs me over $100 to fill each fortnight)
4. Comfort. Something I can take on a family holiday, and relax a bit in.


Would love some suggestions, or if there are any mechanics out there, ready to warn me of major problems, things I should look for, it would be great....

If you're going to buy a Volvo, you have to promise not to be too much of a Volvo driver! Oh wait, you already did!

Seriously though, keep it off the road.
