Buyer's guide: Ford Falcon vs Ford Territory

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Dec 2017

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

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Dec 2016

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

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Jul 2016

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

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Jul 2015

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.

Holden Commodore: Chrysler 300 vs Ford Falcon XR8

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Jan 2015

The Commodore is more refined and a better drive than the Chrysler but don't forget the excellent Falcon XR8. It's now effectively a GT and, apart from the high seating position, has very few flaws at a great price.

Ford Falcon: Dealer not supporting warranty

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Oct 2014

If at no time was it stipulated, verbally or in writing that the car had to be delivered before June 30 I would think you have a very strong case to put to Ford. I would try Ford's Customer service people again and put it in writing this time. If that fails appeal to a higher authority within Ford, and consider having a solicitor write to the company.

Ford Falcon: Snapped spark plugs

Answered by CarsGuide 2 May 2014

It's a common problem when mechanics come to change the plugs at the 100,000 km mark. If it were my car I would be removing the plugs every time it's serviced, and cleaning them and resetting the gap. Not only will that minimize the chances of the plugs being corroded into the alloy head, but also the engine is likely to run better. I also agree with you that it's a flawed design and Ford should cough up for the cost of the repairs.
