Ford Owner Car Reviews

2006 Ford Territory TS (4x4) review

I bought the Territory TS AWD seven-seater new in 2007 and it has now done nearly 200,000km in a little over 10 years. I purchased it for business and used it as my daily driver for over five years. Because the Territory was still in good condition and is such an excellent and useful vehicle, we decided to hold onto it and she-who-must-be-obeyed (SWMBO) now happily uses it as her daily drive...

2005 Ford Falcon XR8 Enforcer review

After owning V8-powered Fords in the 1970s and '80s, there was quite a gap that always spoke to me for more of a taste of another Blue Oval muscle car. After looking at many V8 Fords, I came across na Envi Green BA XR8, to which I instantly felt an attraction. As a bonus, it came out of the FPV thoroughbred stable, namely a Russell Ingall Enforcer...

2012 Ford Focus SPORT Review

Originally I was looking for a 4WD SUV, when I spotted a red sport at the Ford dealer I was walking through. The colour definitely caught my eye as did the low interest finance on offer. My trade in offer was higher than expected which sealed the deal for me. I had traded in my VY Commodore which had only done 105,000kms and was in excellent shape...

2008 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo Review

The hot hatch market has no shortage of contenders vying for consumers’ hard-earned dollars, but even a decade on, the Ford Focus XR5 Turbo remains a unique offering with a number of welcome quirks...

2008 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo review

PHWOAR! A term used to express desire, but also a term somehow apt (and not for the same reason) for describing the feeling I get every time I’m behind the wheel of my Aussie-made FG XR6 Turbo sedan. Starting with the exterior, Ford finally got this right with the FG series. There are curves and angles in all the right places that give a properly sporty look without overdoing it...

2010 Ford Mondeo Titanium review

I am the proud owner of a 2010 Ford Mondeo Titanium 2.3L petrol hatch. Looks: When new it was ahead of the game. Sharp yet subtle, curves and seams that not only met but accentuated the modern professional style the Titanium offers. Drive: At low speeds (sub 50km/h) the steering is bland and does not offer much feedback for a driver...

2016 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) review

I have been a Holden man all my life, and when the business grew to a point where I needed a truck, I went shopping. I tested all the new utes on the market, all bar the HiLux because of its crummy new engine, dull interior and disgusting exterior – bias aside and ignoring the badge on the grille, the Ranger was my pick by a country mile...

2016 Ford Focus RS review

  What I hate The Sync2 infotainment unit is a joke. Slow, laggy and not really a touch screen, it feels like Ford ripped it out of the first generation touch phones that you really need to apply quite a bit of pressure for it to actually do anything. The clutch! I gotta be honest here, I've never stalled a car as many times as I've stalled the RS in the first week as a daily...

2016 Ford Everest Trend Review

At 6'5" selecting a car is not about what you want, but what you can fit your legs into. After trying 11 SUV there was only a handful that had any level of comfort. Certainly not the Mazda CX-9 with its ridiculously sized central dash column (undriveable) and the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport with no driver legroom (undriveable)...

2012 Ford Mondeo Zetec review

I have just traded this car after more than four years of enjoyable and reliable motoring. Not a thing has gone wrong with the car and all I have replaced are the consumables like tyres, filters and battery. The best and most addictive thing is the torque surge. When you accelerate the torque curve starts to climb at around 1500rpm and the car just picks up and flies...

2016 Ford Mustang 2.3 GTDI Review

6,500kms in a convertible turbo-four, mostly traveling on interstate highways has me looking for more opportunities to travel. This is a sensational touring vehicle and has enough room for weeks away for two. I have not found a rattle/shake or shudder or build defect to date. The 3,000 kilometre free check demonstrated the loan car offer but you have to book it...
