Car ownership in the country is changing fast, but it’s not as if the trend is going unnoticed.

The share of the population who own a car has doubled in the past decade.
In 2014-15, 26 per cent of Australians owned a car.
Now it’s more than 40 per cent, and in 2016-17, the figure jumped to 56 per cent.
So what is driving the trend?
While Australians have moved from a world of auto-centric culture to a more consumer-centric one, many drivers are still reluctant to buy a new vehicle, especially when it comes to gas and maintenance costs.
Even if they do, the big question is, what do they want?
It’s a big question.
“The new drivers don’t want the whole vehicle to be out of service,” says Stephen Wilson, a senior lecturer in transportation at the University of Technology, Sydney.
They want the basics of a car, like the engine, transmission and brakes, as well as the range and value of the car, and they want a car that they can drive on a regular basis.
Many Australians buy their cars online.
But not everyone does.
If you want to be really careful, you can get a car online with a car service like CARGO, or buy it from an established car dealer.
And many Australian car buyers aren’t ready to pay $150,000 for a new car, let alone $180,000.
How you buy a car in Australia is now changing.
For the past few years, the average price of a new motor vehicle has fallen by over a third, and the average cost of maintenance has risen by a third.
However, many Australians are still hesitant to buy their first car, at least for a few years.
While it’s cheaper to buy your first car online, it’s harder to buy an old car if you’re a young person.
Buying an old vehicle isn’t cheap, and it’s unlikely that you’ll ever be able to afford a replacement.
Most people will pay around $100,000 to $150 000 for a vehicle, depending on the vehicle, and there are some car dealers who charge an extra $200,000 or more for a service like a new transmission.
Some Australians are also concerned about the health and safety of a vehicle.
A recent study by the Car Safety Foundation found that one in three Australian drivers think a car should be fitted with anti-lock brakes.
