2006 Ford Falcon XT 4.0L 6 cylinder dedicated gas from Australia and New Zealand
Good car and cheap to run
Re-machining front brake discs.
Replaced battery at 60000 kms.
Being a dedicated gas car, it was fitted with heavy duty suspension, which made the ride quality poor.
Replaced the springs with slightly lower sports type, and greatly improved the ride.
The gas fuel system is good, and LPG makes it cheap to run.
Overall it's a good car.
I drive a variety of brands and car types in a work car pool, and the Falcon is a more pleasurable car to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi. We have Camrys, Commodores and Falcons in our car pool, and I used to prefer Holden, but the new Falcons in our fleet we got 7 years ago changed my mind; easier to drive, more comfortable, more responsive and they run better. With company cut backs and a downturn, it's seen no more Commodores; only Falcons and Camrys now, and the Ford wins hands down except for fuel economy, but it's marginal.
