Ford Falcon 2006 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Falcon here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Falcon: Buying for less than $3000
With such a low budget your choices are very limited. The best you could hope for would be a BF/BFII XT six-cylinder sedan. Shop around and choose the car in the best condition, with the lowest kilometres, and a solid service history.
Does tyre pressure alter the speedo?
The extra air will make the tyre circumference a tiny amount larger but it will make such a marginal difference to the speedo reading that you won’t notice.
Updating a Falcon XR6?
The Sorento has just been voted the 2015 Car of the Year so it gets The Tick from me. There is an all-new CX-9 next year and a Santa Fe update soon. Today, the order is Sorento, Outback, Santa Fe and CX-9.
Falcon wagon vs Territory SUV
I can well understand why you would want to get out of the BMW and into something more reliable. I would urge you to avoid the Territory; the early models have problems with suspensions that will be ongoing for the life of the vehicle. I would certainly go for the Falcon, but would again urge you to go for a BF Series II, which is a much better car than the BF. If you wanted another car to look at I would suggest a Subaru Liberty wagon.
