Ford Falcon 2012 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Falcon 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What oil can I use instead of Ford Engine Oil?
You need to keep using an oil that is compatible with LPG as this fuel places different stresses on the lubricating oil compared with an engine burning petrol or diesel. Provided you stick with the correct grade and API rating and choose a known brand (not the Brand-X supermarket stuff) you should be fine. Don’t forget to change the filter every time you change the oil.Show more
Ford Falcon 2012: What tyres should I fit?
Dodge the cheap Chinese imports and go for a reputable brand from Michelin, Bridgestone, Khumo, Dunlop. They all offer good all-round performance.Show more
Ford warranty issue
We'd like to think that our cars would last longer and not give us trouble, but the reality is quite different to that. The ZF 6-speed gearbox is a troublesome one that can fail, as yours appears to have done. But as Ford has pointed out to you your Territory is out of warranty, although that doesn't end Ford's responsibility to back the product. You could pursue a full payment for replacing the transmission from Ford, but I doubt you would have any success. Should you choose to do that contact your state Consumer Affairs people in Perth for advice and support. But in my view your best course of action would be to accept Ford's offer of part payment.Show more
What to pick for second hand sedan?
I'd go for the Mazda6, which has a combination of class and comfort, and not the Falcon unless you're a sporty driver. The Liberty in that age was a bit 'off' by Subaru standards because of the Global Financial Crisis, and the 3.6 is no real improvement over the 2.5 unless you tow.Show more
