1998 Ford Falcon EL2 GLI Sapphire Sedan 4.0i6 from Australia and New Zealand
Chews up the kilometres no problems!!
Rear boot leak.
Shocks/struts all round.
Discs/pads all round.
Front rack end to be tightened.
Transmission service due to slipping gears (needed new oil).
Radiator needed a flush.
Driver's seat rail weld break.
Factory Tickford gas service.
Moisture in indicators.
Continual wheel alignments.
The car has given near on half a million kays so far (and it isn't uncommon to see million plus kay cars still cruising round on the original motor with new transmissions).
Virtually trouble free apart from regular servicing and wheel alignments.
No problems with factory Tickford gas until recently, when the gas leaked out, but just needed a service and a few screws tightened.
Various bits and pieces required tightening, but it is a high kay example, so is expected.
Condensation in lights fixed by removing and gluing seams.
Average 500-550k on fuel, 400 on gas.
Very comfortable. Very smooth. A fair amount of power.
An excellent, reliable vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
