Excellent All Rounder — Falcons are common place in Australia, but there are few RTV model utes. The RTV model brings with it a rear differential lock, 1 tonne tray capacity, higher suspension, and higher towing loads. It has plenty of get up and go for a mid range, inline 6 cylinder, and has decent handling for its size and weight. Being a ute, the rear end is light around rough corners and in wet conditions. It only has a two seat capacity, but this is not a large downfall for this category of car.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Excellent reliable car, but is no way a sporty-esque car. Classic Falcon Ute, will go pretty much anywhere, and has enough power to pull away if you need to.

Cons: Genuine service is a killer.

Love The Car! — I had a BA MKII XR6, sold it due to having a company car (07 Falcon wagon). I got the XR6 new in 05, I loved everything about it. I handled exceptionally well (like it was on rails), very responsive when accelerating, easy braking. I've been told it looks sexy! The seats were extremely comfortable, they contoured around any size body well. The instruments were positioned in good sight position and were easy to use. I loved the blue speedo and tacho with red needles. Fun to drive and was comfortable long and short distance. Great on fuel for a 6cyl. Annoying bits were brake shuddering (common on that series Ford), transmission was a little clunky and harsh when going back up through gears upon acceleration. Too much brake dust on front wheels - forever cleaning them. Loved the car, miss it much and would have one anyday!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its beautiful to drive and looks sexy!

Cons: annoying clunks and shudders

Blegh — Had the Entire Computer System replaced. Whole Front Steering Assembly, Fuel Pump, and Suspension. and only had 63,000 on the clock. NOW she is running, she is a nice car. Pitty she's Auto, so it's not that fun to drive. High Fuel consumption 13.0L/100km, but expected from a Large Car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a FORD

Cons: Automatic

2005 Ford Falcon Xr6 — The things i love the most about my Ford Falcon XR6 are the pickup when you put your foot down, i love the apperence of the car, and the interior is nice and it is a comfortable car to ride in. The car is average on fuel, it uses 15 litres of fuel to the hundred kilometers but it is a great car and it is fun to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Pickup, comfortable, spacious, massive boot

Cons: it is a low car so when your parking it or coming out of a drive way you have to be careful because you can damage it quite easily.

I Luv This Car Cause It The Fasted One I Own — This car is good for the P Platers which I am/was. I would have to say cost of moving the car isn't on the cheap side and build quailty is on the plastic/cheap side. I would say the white body with racing stripes make it look mad and its fun driving and doing hard turns in the car. I would have to say when i got it was fun to drive but now its a bit boring cause I am now used to the speed of the car now

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: THE NEED FOR SPEED

Cons: It kidna average for the interior

Xr6 Ba Mark2 — Fun with the traction control off...lol Appearance - More appealing with aftermarket Altezza style tailights. Mileage - A little thirsty... but you have to expect that from a 4lt Inline 6. Other than that It's a Bloody XR6... Need I say more?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Zip Zip — Your head rips back into the seat when you tap the accelerator. At 110 kph you are just tapping the accelerator and it hugs the road like its on rails. Brilliant interior all sports gear luxurious wrap around seats,sports steering wheel, and a dash like an aeroplanes Exterior look for yourself. Amazing milage per litre and I have spent nothing on it since I got it 2005. You have to drive it to know Nisson eat your heart out no comparison

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing
