1986 Ford Falcon XF 4.1 from Australia and New Zealand
Nice cheap quick car!
A blown battery cable (accidently placed on top of a vacuum hose, melting the plastic and shorting out - my fault).
And a bad water leak through the air vents (after I washed it for the first time, about 3 inches of water was found on the driver's side) - not fixed yet.
After being lowered 2 1/2 inches with wider wheels, smaller SAAS sports steering wheel and power steering, this car handles like a dream as opposed to my last 81 XD.
And with an after-market air con fitted, it's ice cold in the cabin for when I'm hunting VL's on a hot Queensland summer day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

How much did the after market air con cost and where from?

Well I didn't install it, but my old man is an air con mechanic and he reckon no way more than the 600 the guy who owned it previously reckoned, ask around all the air con mechanics and ask for the cheapest way to get the newest gas (r134a I think).
