Ford Falcon 2017 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Falcon here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What's a good car for a mid-life crisis?
There’s clearly no point in talking sense to you, your head is in a complete muddle. You want a fix for your mid-life crisis, yet you talk about resale value, warranty, fixed-price servicing and boring stuff like that. You need to think about what it is you want from your “sporty-ish” car, do you want a performance car that will be thrilling to drive, or are you a park-and-poser and just want to look good when you stop at the café for a latte. The VW Golf GTi is a thrill-a-minute hot hatch; you like the i30N, and both would be good buys. Buy the Lux if you decide on the i30N. You could also think about a BMW M3, or an older Porsche Boxster. I wouldn’t suggest a Commodore SS or a Falcon XR6T ute, they’re a bit boring.
Will there be a replacement for the Falcon and Commodore utes?
Mitsubishi and Toyota make single-cab 4x2 cab-chassis with petrol engines, but they’re not available with the extra-cab, and the petrol engines are basic four bangers. I don’t believe there is a model that is an exact fit with your needs.
Ford Falcon: What's a good replacement?
There’s no good reason to not buy a Falcon, parts will be available for many years yet. There’s the Commodore, but it too is out of production. Other than that there’s no similar sized car available for you. You need to think about getting an SUV, such as a Toyota Kluger, Kia Sorento, Mazda CX-5.
