Ford Falcon Owner Car Reviews

2009 Ford Falcon XR6 review

One of the largest, most comfortable cars that will fit grown adults without a care in the world using armchair technology. The driving position is fantastic if a one-handed driver, as both the centre console and door window ledge are beyond ample to rest on. This car should have only been in the ZF6 and manual version. With 3...

2011 Ford Falcon XR6 review

In a climate where performance is being sacrificed for comfort, reliability and practicality, cars like the FG Falcon series provide all of the above. Even in 2018, the FG stays relevant by providing a spacious sedan, generously equipped with gear and style, and powered by, arguably, one of the best six-cylinder engines ever built...

2014 Ford Falcon XR6T review

Let me just start out by saying that I’m not your stereotypical Falcon buyer. I don’t own any clothing with a V8 Supercars logo. I don’t go to Bali on holidays. I drink neither Jim Beam nor Jack Daniel's. In fact, even my now ownership is sort of an accident, considering I was originally heading out to buy an F30 335i...

2013 Ford Falcon XR6 EcoLPi review

As a daily drive mostly ferrying the family, the Falcon XR6 EcoLPi manages the gig well. But the devil is in the detail, and in this case, living with LPG fuel. My 2013 Mars Red (it’s orange if you ask ordinary folk) ride has clocked up 90,000km and never missed a beat mechanically since new...

1980 Ford XD Falcon S Pack review

The ’70s: when ties and sideburns were wide, trousers flared, and moustaches matched bad haircuts. During the first part of this decade, my friends and I used to clip squares of cardboard to the rear forks of our bike with a clothes peg so it’d strike the spokes as they rotated...

2016 Ford Falcon XR8 Sprint review

So, to start with, I purchased this car without the wife knowing, and yes, I knew I was going to get in the shit for it. But I just wanted one so bad that it was worth being in the doghouse for who knows how long. It's the best car I have ever owned. Steers like it’s on rails and goes like the clappers. Knowing this will only increase in value, I couldn’t be happier with the Sprint...

2004 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo review

This is my third owner review. I’ve decided to go back in time to some of my former cars, starting with my 2004 BA XR6 Turbo. I bought mine second hand from a private seller in Melbourne when I was living in Canberra in 2005. I had a friend who is a meticulous car enthusiast check it out for me before jumping on a plane with a bank cheque in hand...

2015 Ford Falcon XR8 review

For Aussie performance enthusiasts, it doesn't get much better than to own one of the last-ever Ford Falcon XR8s. A 5.0-litre V8 donk fitted with a supercharger built locally by Melbourne firm Harrop is just the beginning of what lies in wait – for those who dare to own and drive one of these Australian automotive masterpieces...

2011 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo review

I bought my 2011 XR6 Turbo from its mechanic owner two years ago with 70,000km on the odometer. It is my third FG but my first turbo. It's now my 'other' obsession and shares the garage with my GT MK1 Cortina. Both only come out to play on the weekends. We have three sons and each is a little over 6ft tall...

2016 Ford Falcon XR8 Sprint review

I bought this car as I have owned Falcons in the past, and considering it's the last one made, and the research and development put into it, I was more inclined to buy it. Also, as the last model made, there would be potential for it to be a collectible model in the future. It is a stylish car and looks aggressive...

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...
