In March 2020 after not owning a car separately from my husband for 20 years. Then moving to the regional S.A. I found car sharing impossible I decided it was time for me to have my own set of wheels. I decided on the 2012 ts x-trail diesel manual because it would be big enough for me to sleep in the back if I want to do some 'grey nomading' big enough to ferry the grandkids, when in Victoria, with their child seats, gustsy enough to tow should I decide to go down that path but small enough for me to be comfortable to drive shopping ext.
I've done a 20day trip to Alice and back and a couple of smaller trips and it never missed a beat, my only gripe is that the spare is not on the same size rim as the other tyres. Which becomes an issue if you want to go off the beaten track. I didn't want to put a spare on a roof rack mainly because I would not be strong enough to get it down if I needed to change a flat. This meant that on my 1st solo outback trip I decided I needed to stay on the bitumen. Apart from that I love it..
I put on all terrain tyres before I left and have purchased an awning and upgraded my esky since I got back.
What next I'm not sure what I'll do or add post Covid
