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.
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.
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.
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.
Where to put the best tyres?
I presume they are putting the new tyres on the front, which is the best place for them, as they're the wheels that steer and brake, and they're moving the old tyres, which I presume are not worn-out, from the front to the rear. Talk to the people who did the work to confirm. I doubt they would fit worn-out tyres to the rear of your car.
