1996 Ford Falcon EFII Futura 4.0i from Australia and New Zealand
Full size family transport
Twice I've had to replace the head gasket, firstly at 90,000klm which was due to one of the cylinder head bolts shearing off, and again at 150,000klm when another cylinder head bolt came loose.
I've had to replace the ignition leads every 50,000klm due to excessive wear and repeated failure.
Parts replaced due to the cars age include radiator, power steering pump, fuel pump, brake rotors and the exhaust.
Still the best looking Falcon ever made.
Great towing ability.
Did I mention it was a good looking car?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Personally I feel the EL Series would have to be the best looking model Falcon in the E Series, especially the EL Fairmont with it's chrome grille and sleek headlights. I have a 1998 EL Fairmont sedan. It has been a great car and a real pleasure to drive. I have done over 50 000km since I have owned it. All it has cost me is a new exhaust system and just regular scheduled maintenance including Auto Transmission Servicing, Brake Pads and Rotors. If you want a good reliable workhorse that has plenty of room for the average family, will tow anything, with heaps of torque, you can't go past a Falcon!
