Ford Falcon Owner Car Reviews

2008 Ford Falcon XR8 review

G'day CarAdvice and CarAdvice readers. Today I'm doing an owner car review of my 2008 Ford BF Falcon MkII XR8. Searching the online classifieds one night for my next car, the dream was to own a V8 Falcon since I've been a Ford fan from an early age. That dream came true in 2009 when I purchased my first XR8 Falcon. However, it wasn't enough...

2007 Ford Falcon XR6 review

I bought my blue 2007 Ford BF XR6 MkII sedan because I've always wanted an XR6 and it only had 65,000km on it. I have only ever had base models like a 2003 XL and a 2002 XLS. I've owned it for around four years now, and still love hopping in and starting it up to hear my exhaust. The start-up might annoy some people on early mornings, but I love it...

2012 Ford Falcon EcoLPi review

When the name Ford Falcon is mentioned, most car enthusiasts' eyes begin an upward rolling motion. A car once so popular, but now laughed off by the majority. But why? Well, of course, the Falcon became a dinosaur in many ways until its recent extinction, but was it really worthy of such disdain? The Falcon was a car I  hated most of my life...

2002 Ford Falcon SR review

Boy Bertha was a great car. I owned my AU for about two years, and in that time I did around 50,000km. For the most part it was pretty happy motoring. I serviced it about twice since owning it and had one big repair bill, where I lost the left upper ball joint and also needed a radiator, and its first service overdue by about 20,000km. Cost me about $1000...

2016 Ford Falcon XR6 review

The 2016 Ford Falcon XR6 (Luxury Pack) has to be one of the better daily drivers I've had. I've been fortunate enough to have driven a broad range of vehicles (some not mine) from VW to Lexus and even a Mercedes or two. After taking into consideration what kind of car you get for your money, I would ultimately, and some might even say 'oddly', pick the Falcon over any other car on the Australian market...

2015 Ford Falcon FG X XR8 Review

I was looking at purchasing my first high-powered vehicle as I was about to come off my P-plates. I test-drove an FPV GT, an F6 310, and then stumbled across this stunning Winter White Ford Falcon FG X on Carsales. The next morning I drove down to the dealership where the car was located, and my eyes lit up when I saw it on the display ramp...

2014 Ford Falcon XR8 review

Towards the end of last year, on the way to work I passed by two police cars (no, I wasn't in any trouble) – a VFII Holden Commodore SSV Redline parked next to an FG X Ford Falcon. It struck me that I should take a photo, since our Aussie police won't be driving these iconic, last-of-the-breed Aussie cars for much longer...

2013 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo review

Let's start off with the fun part. This car is fast. Real world fast. Sure, many a car (including Holden's SS Ute) would do better on a race track but I do not use a race track every day. This has by far more power and speed than anyone truly needs, but... I bought the car as I came into position to purchase a fun car...

2016 Ford Falcon XR8 Sprint review

I bought this car as I was in a position to get one. Being the last ever Falcon and the fact I've always bought Falcons, I just wanted one. And the R&D put into the Sprint made it worthwhile. To be honest, it's not a daily drive, rather my weekender. The space inside is typical Falcon – big and plenty of legroom...

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...

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...
