2001 Ford Falcon AU3 Forte I6 4.0L SOHC from Australia and New Zealand
Great handling/performance and cheap parts
180,500 Exhaust Leak - replaced by the mechanic that gave it the RWC.
195,000 Clunking diff - replace with a reconditioned diff.
195,000 high pressure power steering hose leak.
Have the car as a weekend car, so not treated too nice...
Love this car; the handling/performance/comfort of it when it was stock was amazing. The clutch is fairly heavy, but I like the feedback from it...
Have added some BF XR Mags, lowered Tickford suspension and cat back exhaust. Since then I haven't had the back end of the car come out... it just grips to the road and with no body roll feels greet accelerating through corners.
The ride quality has got a lot worse with the new larger, wider mags... Feel a lot more of the road, but I don't mind.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
