Semi Reliable, But Still A Bit Fuel Hungry. — was a great car in its day. It was a good looking car when its taken care of. Very sad to have let it go. It had a lot of power for a 4.1 litre straight 6. Look especially good lowered, black tinted windows in a dark red. A very confortable car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A real cool and good looking car

Cons: the air conditioner needed regular service and replacement. engine needed lots of maintenance.

Good Work Horse — love any ute with a v8. needs a good service and tune, high diff ratio meens for a quick take off but a sticky shift valve makes getting the rite gear hard. motor is out of an xa or xb ford but not entirly sure, gear box from the states out of an LTD. diff seems to be xf convirted to LSD. tail gate has bee custom made from Checker plate steel n set up with a ramp for motor bikes

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: v8 ute

Cons: ford

Xf Falcon Wagon — Was 3.3 with 3 speed manual. Exremely gutless. Parts kept breaking (doorhandles, etc). Unassisted steering was way too heavy. Overheated, and seats difficult to adjust. Was somewhat economical on LPG, but very hard to start from cold. Not missed. Was bright yellow. 3 gears is not enough.

Pros: Gone

Cons: See above
