Ford Falcon 2014 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Falcon here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Buyer's guide: Ford Falcon vs Ford Territory
Depending on what you want from them either one would be a good buy. The Falcon is a reliable good car with few foibles; the Territory is also a good car if you don’t buy the early model. If you can afford it the diesel Territory would be the best choice.
Best replacement for a Calais
With local production shutting down the big-car choices are getting fewer and fewer, but right now you can still buy a Calais if that's what you like. You can also buy an equivalent Falcon or Toyota Aurion. There are more expensive cars, from the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi etc. that would suit, but they come with a much higher price tag than a Calais. Others you could try are a Skoda Superb, a Honda Accord V6 Luxury if you're prepared to give up a little in size, and there's also the Chrysler 300C.
Best car for a family of four from $20,000-$30,000
It's hard to make recommendations without knowing much about what you want. The choices of vehicles for a family of four are many and varied, as you say. I would consider a Kia Sportage SUV, Toyota Camry mid-sized sedan, or a Ford Falcon is you want a large sedan. You would certainly be better off shopping for a one to two-year-old used car.
Ford Falcon 2014: Pulling left
You're in a bind and there's no easy way out. If you want to pursue it with Ford have it checked by an independent engineer registered with the RTA and have him produce a report you can take to Ford. But I would suggest instead of presenting it directly yourself enlist the help of a solicitor to write to Ford about your case and enclose the report with it.
