The type of car I forgot existed

published

I bought a EL falcon sedan 96 some time ago with only 77K on it from a little old lady that bought it from new appreciating its condition. Its an additional car for our family and sits in the garage but don't I love driving it. We have a brand new transit van and Isuzu MUX but they have so many electrics that you use in them and mod cons to get from A to B but you don't appreciate the drive. In the time I have had the EL I have had to replace the head gasket thats common but if I had the chance to drive this car over the modern ones I would get rid of the new in an instant.

EL Ford 1996

published

This big old Ford doesnt like E10 fuel it coughs and carrys on within minutes. So tough and reliable I wouldnt swap my car for a new little fancy even if the new one were free. The vehicle was 5 years old when I purchased it and Ive had it now for 15 years, has regular services, the most expensive job was a head gasket 10 years ago but other than that the old girl is doing fine. I feel safer in this car.

This car is just as good you can get find for a 16 years old

published

I have the Falcon EL, 1996 as my second car. It has a mere 93,000 kms on the clock. I have given it to my son.

In the first 12 years of the car, I just had to change oil and oil filter as well as changing the brake pads and the tyres as well as the battery.

In the last year, I had a major engine overhaul and, since then, as through the 16 years, the engine does not burn ANY oil until you change the oil. Extremely reliable.
Extremely reliable, powerful engine, plenty of space for 4 adults. Large booth. Parts are cheap and easy to find.
Petrol consumption can be high if you run it hard. Over-steering from the back.

Warranty is usually 24 months 40,000km. But will last a lot longer. My ba falcon has the original pump 335,000km. Don't keep cranking if you run out of fuel. Can damage the electric motor.
