Ford Falcon: Buying for less than $3000

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Aug 2018

With such a low budget your choices are very limited. The best you could hope for would be a BF/BFII XT six-cylinder sedan. Shop around and choose the car in the best condition, with the lowest kilometres, and a solid service history.

Does tyre pressure alter the speedo?

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Dec 2015

The extra air will make the tyre circumference a tiny amount larger but it will make such a marginal difference to the speedo reading that you won’t notice.

Updating a Falcon XR6?

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Dec 2015

The Sorento has just been voted the 2015 Car of the Year so it gets The Tick from me. There is an all-new CX-9 next year and a Santa Fe update soon. Today, the order is Sorento, Outback, Santa Fe and CX-9.

Falcon wagon vs Territory SUV

Answered by CarsGuide 22 May 2015

I can well understand why you would want to get out of the BMW and into something more reliable. I would urge you to avoid the Territory; the early models have problems with suspensions that will be ongoing for the life of the vehicle. I would certainly go for the Falcon, but would again urge you to go for a BF Series II, which is a much better car than the BF. If you wanted another car to look at I would suggest a Subaru Liberty wagon.

Ford Falcon 2006: Tyre troubles

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Apr 2015

Alloy wheels do go out of round without necessarily hitting kerbs. I would swap the wheels from side to side and see if there is any improvement, you could also dismount the tyres and reposition them on the rims, and have them balanced at another tyre outlet, you could also approach the tyre manufacturer for help.

Distance vs time for scheduled servicing

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Mar 2015

The reason for distance and time on services is that short trips put just as much strain, sometimes more, on a car. If you go outside the recommendations, or do it yourself, you risk voiding the warranty and that could be expensive if something big goes wrong.

Ford Falcon 2005: Slipping transmission

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Jul 2014

You've done the things that would normally be done when a car comes in with this sort of complaint, that is servicing the transmission and installing a new 2-3 shift solenoid. If that hasn't fixed it the next step would be to delve inside and rebuild it. It's unlikely to be a computer glitch, but perhaps the error code could help tell you what the issue is.
