Best replacement for a Calais
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
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
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.

Not a lot of new Ford Falcons are sold these days, so there's a shortage of late models on the used-car scene, but certainly no lack of offering built prior to 2010. For many years Falcon was a huge ...Read More
Ford Falcon: Dealer not supporting warranty
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
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.
