FORD FALCON Used Car Review

The Ford Falcon was Australia's longest continuously running nameplate up to the cessation of local production in October 2016 - 56 years after it debuted as a US-based model. Ford's large car started to become more Australianised from the 1970s and it would eventually compete against the Holden Commodore in a famously fierce local rivalry. There were luxury models such as the Fairlane and LTD, ute spin-offs, and sportier models such as the XR6 Turbo and V8-powered XR8 of more recent times.

Pros

Cons

  • Roomy and comfortable interiors
  • Wide range of models
  • Excellent, torquey six-cylinder engines
  • Engineered specifically for Australian roads
  • Thirsty LPG engines
  • Taxi stigma
  • No longer in production

Hi there! This has been my baby for the past 2 years. Bought it at 38,000km from a dealership and have driven it since. Service history. Car comes with rego until July but no rwc, I work full time. You need to do this yourself. Given that it's on such low km's I'm sure it won't require anything major. Car is sitting healthily on 73,000 with mostly freeway km's as I drive to the city for work. I recommend a detail. I've taken it to the carwash every now and then, but I'm in a company car too o

  • Common FAQs
  • The Ford Falcon was in production for more than 50 years, so prices will vary greatly depending on the model, condition and how collectable it is. Gumtree has more than 3,500 Ford Falcons for sale with prices ranging from as little as $400 up to $145,000.
  • The power output of the Ford Falcon depends on the model; for example, the 2016 FG X 2.0 L model has a power output of 176 kW and the 2016 XR8 Sprint's engine produces 345 kW.
  • As an older car, produced from 1960 to 2017, there are differences between models. However, the Ford Falcon is generally reviewed as being long-lasting and ruggedly built, with reasonably priced spare parts.
  • The unbraked towing capacity of a Fold Falcon is 750 kg across all models, with a braked capacity at 2,300 kg for those with automatic transmission, 1,200 kg for those with manual transmission and 1,600 kg for turbo models.
  • The 2016 Ford Falcon XR6 and XR8 Sprint have been dubbed the 'quickest' Falcons, with an acceleration speed of 0 to 100 km/h of 4.5 seconds, and a limited top speed of 230 km/h. The 2004 APS Falcon Phase III XR6T has a top speed of 307 km/h.

Overview of the Ford Falcon

Overview of the Ford Falcon

The Ford Falcon was Australia's longest continuously running nameplate up to the cessation of local production in October 2016 - 56 years after it debuted as a US-based model.

Ford's large car started to become more Australianised from the 1970s and it would eventually compete against the Holden Commodore in a famously fierce local rivalry.

There were luxury models such as the Fairlane and LTD, ute spin-offs, and sportier models such as the XR6 Turbo and V8-powered XR8 of more recent times.

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO FORD FALCON

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: FORD FALCON (FG, 2008-2016)

Watch out for a used Falcon that has been abused by a previous fleet-operator owner.

Clunks over bumps can mean worn suspension bushes.

A pulsing through the car when you apply the brakes probably means worn and warped front brake rotors. Sometimes these can be repaired, but usually new rotors are the best strategy.

The automatic transmission has an external fluid cooler, but these can fail, allowing coolant into the gearbox where it quickly wrecks both the mechanical and electronic functions of the automatic. Check the transmission fluid for milkiness that suggests the coolant and oil have mixed. If they have mixed, give that car a miss.

Make sure the central locking works perfectly, as this is an early sign of a failing body computer.

Check for low coolant level in the radiator. An O-ring at the back of the water pump is a common cause of coolant loss.
