Ford Telstar Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Telstar here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Tyres for Telstar

    The Bob Jane All-Rounders and the Firestones are both budget brands. Both tyres are 195 mm wide and fit a 15-inch wheel, but the one with the 65 per cent aspect ratio is taller, which makes it larger in diameter. Tyre life is impossible to predict with any precision, because of the many variables that can affect it, but 95,000 km is excellent.

  • Fuel confusion

    IT depends on the compression ratio of your engine. When it was sold new there was a choice of standard and super petrol. Standard had an octane rating a little below the 91 of the current unleaded, super was 98. Most cars of the time were running super and I believe that would be best for your car, with an additive for protection of the valves and valve seats.

  • Car to commute

    EITHER car would be fine for your purpose. But remember that whatever car you choose, it's likely to have lots of kilometres on the odometer. By all means try to find a Telstar or a Camry, my preference would be for Toyota as long as it's a four-cylinder model, but if you cast your net wider you might land a mint model of some other make. The key things with a car that old is to find one that's in good condition with the lowest odometer reading possible. Hopefully, you will find a car that has been lovingly looked after by its owner, and perhaps not often driven.

  • Shining telstar

    A TX5 in top condition is bringing up to $10,000. They were imported from Japan so build quality was good, but they were a little too pricey to take the market by storm. A clone of the Mazda 626, the 2.5-litre V6 needed to be revved to deliver its best, but it was nicely featured, with alloys, rear spoiler, fog lights and a sporty interior. If you are not sure that the cam belt change was done at 100,000km, then it would be a good idea to replace it now.
