1984 Ford Fairmont XF 4.1L EFI inline six from Australia and New Zealand
High fuel bill, low performance
2 blown rocker cover gaskets.
Paint job in very poor condition.
Broken engine mount.
Constant problems with it not idling properly even though 3 different mechanics have tried to fix it.
Interior in very poor condition.
Minor oil leak from the head gasket.
Rust in boot lid and front guard.
Original alloy wheels very corroded.
It is much more sluggish than my commodore was even though it has an extra 35kw.
The power steering is very light, but can feel very dull (no feedback)
Despite its size it is very easy to manoeuvre and park.
The inside of the car is very spacious.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
