Gympie drivers opt for Cruisers

RACQ Insurance has revealed Gympie drivers have clear favourites when it comes to their choice of daily drives.

RACQ Insurance executive manager communications Mike Sopinski said an analysis of insurance data identified the Toyota LandCruiser as Gympie's favourite vehicle.

The Cruiser was closely followed by the Holden Commodore and the Ford Falcon, as the most popular vehicles to be found on Gympie streets.

Mr Sopinski said car buyers considered a number of factors when selecting vehicles, with affordability among the top, if not the most important.

"The reliability of a vehicle is also high on the car shopping checklist, as is the overall reputation of the vehicle manufacturer," he said.

"Personal choice, such as preferred colour, small car, large car, intended use, two doors or four doors, also influences the final decision.

"The good news for consumers is that there is plenty of used models to choose from at the moment, which also helps keep prices down."
