Ford Owner Car Reviews

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...

2010 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo review

Having learnt to drive on country roads in north-west Tasmania, I have always preferred small, well-sorted cars rather than large, heavy ones. I have enjoyed showing a Commodore V8 a clean pair of heels on a windy road with some black ice in my modestly powered Fiat 128 Sport when, if raw power is compared, the Commodore should have left the Fiat in the dust...

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...

2011 Ford Fiesta LX review

In numerology and various other fields beyond the purview of this site, the number seven possesses some form of significance. And that is, for those among us old enough to remember, before a certain Brad Pitt and the stomach-churning delivery he receives at the climax of a certain motion picture from several years back is considered...

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...

2011 Ford FPV GS review

Before buying this car, I'd never had a large sedan, let alone one with so much power. And wow, it sure has power! Ford’s lowest-spec model in the FPV range boasts 315kW with the choice of the German ZF six-speed automatic or the Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual...

2017 Ford Focus RS review

I bought a 2017 Mustang GT V8 manual in April 2017, and from the moment I took it home I was very disappointed with the quality of the manual transmission and also the overall build quality of the Mustang. In fact, it really left me perplexed as to how this car made it through Ford's quality control in the States and, if any, our QC here in Oz...

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...
