1998 Ford Falcon AU Forte petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Having bought and sold many AUs, I can honestly say they are the best used car value on the market. They drive nice and smooth, and are very reliable. I'll go out on a limb here and say they are probably the best 6 cylinder engine in the world. Nothing goes wrong with them, ask any mechanic.
The most common problem I have with AUs are the door lock actuators, but they are an easy and cheap fix.
If you're going to buy one, get a Series 111 Fairmont; they're great value for money. They look great slightly lowered with big wheels.
The AU was a much misunderstood car, but take your hat off Ford, you built a good one here.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
