Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — Least of it's ability is getting off the line. A heavy car really but once running on some bends eats up the road with ease! Kept in really good nik, i slight noise from the hydraulic lifters annoying every now n' then Custom dual exhaust 3", headers and a sunroof other then that Original condition all round, except cd/tuner is about it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: total comfort/space. Gets up and boogies even when running the LPG

Cons: Missing a supercharger

Au Falcon — Good acceleration and ok handling thanks to lowered springs and shortened shocks. Rare five speed manual and a six cylinder VCT engine. Lsd with 3:4:5 diff ration. Great car to drive round mountain runs. Absolutely love this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Could use more power and better brakes

1999 Ford Falcon Au Xr6 (not Vct Engine) — Performance - The XR6 has fantastic acceleration. Very quick. It's brakes are decent. It stops well enough. Not the fastest stop but not too bad. It also handles quite nicely around corners. The sports suspension keeps the car from rolling too much yet is comfortable on bumps. Build Quality - I bought this car second hand recently. Most things are good. The back door has locking issues though. Appearance - The XR models are the only decent looking Falcons in the AU series. I general think the AU Falcons are incredibly ugly but I don't mind the XR's so much as they have twin rounded headlights, some mild spoilers on the front and back and larger wheels. Cost - Being a 4.0 litre 6 cylinder it's not exactly light on fuel consumption. The tank holds 68 litres and the car will do about 600 km's on a tank, some city some highway driving. Not too bad but going from a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder car it costs a bit more. Fun Factor - It's definitely fun to drive. The sports seats are comfortable and hold you in nicely around corners and when accelerating. And it definitely accelerates. Fun to drive for sure.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive. Good acceleration and handling. Reasonably comfortable. Lots of space.

Cons: Ugly, though not as ugly as the regular AU Falcons. Not as easy on fuel as a smaller car. I personally find the same era Holden Commodores more comfortable, in particular for gear stick reach.

Unexpected Satisfaction With A Ford — Performance - good acceleration, poor braking and good handling for a big car. Build quality - it's a ford, it is full of squeaks and rattles in the interior, but never breaks down. Appearance - Series 1 AU is fugly, but being an XR6 it looses the whale front end look. Cost of ownership - cheap on parts and maintenance, but expensive on fuel. Fun Factor - Very high, wouldn't trade it for anything.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Cost

Excellent — Performance is crap just does go fast enough, brakes fade if drive too hard, dents on drivers side and roof caused from a physco. Otherwise looks stock standard no mods yet. Need a blower, up graded brakes and suspension and paint job from gorgeous girl friend.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: its a ford

Cons: cant know

Best Rental Car, Ever — For a lowly A$60 a day, we had this huge 4L Falcon Forte for the 2000+ kilometre journey. It accelerated smartly and was very steady at all speeds, right up to the electronic speed limiter. Around great ocean road, it was very lively and distinctly heavy in the corners, however, the responsive throttle allowed for very controllable tail-out antics. We loved the quiet cruising (1300rpm @ 110kmh), and rather economical fuel consumption (10+km/L).

Pros: quiet, smooth and large

Cons: had to give it up at the end of the journey
