Which is better: Commodore vs Falcon?

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Jun 2016

It's very low mileage for a car that is 18 years old, so make sure the odometer is correct. If it is you've most likely got a good buy on your hands. The BA Falcon is a solid and generally reliable car. There's little to worry about with the engine, there can be problems with the automatic transmission, but it shouldn't be a problem if it drives normally when you test-drive it.

I also suffered through a six-volt Beetle but there is no excuse now. Upscale Euro cars have great bi-xenons and that should be the standard for everyone, although the Commodore and Falcon are world's - best for their price.

By locking in third gear it’s going into ‘limp home’ mode, probably because the computer has identified an electrical problem with the gearbox. A diagnostic check should identify the fault.

Using old petrol for Falcon

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Apr 2011

It won’t damage your car, but it might cause it run poorly. Fuel today goes off within a week or two, so it’s not a good idea to leave it in the tank for too long.
