1996 Ford Falcon EFII Futura 4.0 straight 6
Awesome every day car
Nothing so far.
Have replaced the drive belt, oil and filter as a matter of general maintenance.
Blower fan became noisy for awhile, but it turned out to just be a dried leaf in there (common problem).
Awesome for long trips; I did 970 km in it one day over 12 hours and it didn't miss a beat, nor did I feel fatigued or sore.
The seats are comfortable; not a lot of lateral support, but they are still supportive.
Cruise control is a bonus for long trips.
Very good for overtaking. The 157kw engine has heaps of low down grunt for quick passing.
Nice dash layout, simple controls.
Still good looking for a 17 year old car. They really suit the aggressive 16" XR6 alloys. Tyres in that size aren't cheap though.
Handles pretty well for such a heavy and large vehicle. The Series 2 are a lot better than the original EF's.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
