Falcon or Fairmont for 12k?
With your budget you're looking at the FG Falcon of around 2009, which is what I would recommend. An FG G6E, the equivalent of the Fairmont in the FG would be slightly above your budget range, but it would be the best choice. To find a Fairmont that fits within your budget constraints you would need to go back to the BFII.
Ford Falcon: Ruptured oil cooler
There have been changes made to the design of the oil cooler and claims that the problem has been fixed, but it’s an on-going issue that should have been properly addressed a long time ago. Recalls are made where the safety of a vehicle is affected; they aren’t done for design faults that don’t impact on a car’s safety. That said, Ford should have fixed the problem and updated cars, so owners don’t have to face expensive repair bills. Call Ford’s customer assistance people and lodge a claim with them for the repairs to be covered under a goodwill payment. You could also contact the consumer affairs people in the ACT to get their advice on what action you could take.

Best performance V8 sedan?
It's an easy choice for me. I'd go for the VFII SS-V with the new Corvette engine. It's a new high-water mark for Holden and, in any case, all the XR8s have already been allocated to owners.
Glue failing on Falcon rear window
Providing the car hasn't been involved in a crash or anything else that might have an effect on the window you could have a claim on the basis of a manufacturing or design fault. Either the glue wasn't up to the job, or it wasn't properly applied in production. The car is six years old, however, and it would probably be easier and less painful to simply repair it instead of trying to lever a few bucks out of Ford.
