Ford Owner Car Reviews

2013 Ford Focus Sport review

After almost five years of ownership, the time has come to upgrade to a larger vehicle for the larger family. I thought the time was right to finally submit a review. Replacing a VE Calais V V8 that, while fast and comfortable, was chewing through $120/week in fuel (500–600km/week) and beginning to rack up repair costs, the brief was something fun to drive, economical, and manual...

2018 Ford Fiesta Titanium review: An expat's view of the one we won't get

As a expat living in the UK, I thought I would write a review of a car you won’t get, but probably should. (Editor's note: We're getting the hot ST model, but not the wider range.) The car in question is a 2018 Ford Fiesta Titanium EcoBoost 1.0L 5-door, in a rather fetching deep impact blue (Note the red shown here - Ed)...

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...

2017 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) review

When looking for a replacement for my previous ute a little more than a year ago, I was set on getting the safest one available at that stage. The Ford Ranger was top of the pile, and therefore the search ended with a slightly used 2017 3.2 XLT 4x4 auto. My first auto, and it might be my last for a while. More on that later...

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...

2018 Ford Mustang Fastback Bullitt review

My daily driver is the ugliest car in the world. I know this for a fact because I have read all of the feedback on the reviews on various forums for this hideous machine. By driving a Mini Countryman on public roads, I am deeply offending all of the tasteful and intelligent people who inhabit the comments section of every motoring website on the interweb and for that I am very sorry...

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...

2015 Ford Focus Titanium review

If you can, cast your mind back to when you purchased your first car. Safe to say, it’s normally a pretty exciting time, and it was back in 2015 when I went to buy my first-ever car. After months of researching small cars with a bit of a sporting edge, a decision was made – enter the LW MKII Ford Focus Titanium in Panther Black...

2008 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo review

Ignition sequence start: seatbelt on, clutch in, start button depressed. Engines are go. The thunderous warble of five force-fed cylinders erupts from the dual exhaust outlets, shaking my garage and everything in it. An offbeat rhythm pulsates through the cabin as the beast breathes deeply, settling to a delicate idle. Turbo and oil gauges come to life...

2007 Ford Fiesta XR4 review

I have owned my XR4 for a little over a year now, and I have loved every moment. I bought it as my first car because I wanted something relatively cheap, reliable, and reasonably quick. As a driver's car, not much comes close for the money. A decent XR4 can be picked up for around $6000 with low kays. The engine is an N/A 2...

2013 Ford Mondeo Titanium TDCi review

[caption id="attachment_674839" align="alignnone" width="3968"] Confirmed cardie-wearer. That’s what one of my mates called me after I told him I’d just bought a used Mondeo. Ha. Ha.[/caption] Truth is, the MC Mondeo is an overlooked gem of a car, at least in its Titanium guise. Power comes from a 2...
