heh quality problems, tell me about it. Fuinny story at TAFE few days ago some chick kept tellin me how "crap" ford is and how bad they build them. When I asked her why Commodores were recalled more times than Falcons she replies "what's recall mean?" The smart people buy Fords. The dumb buy Holden. therefore Holden sell more becasue the world is full of Morons. Sorry not dumb buy holden but nearly everyone who buys holden isnt someone in the know likfe hobbes strife ect but are becasue they been brainwashed to think that they are better and an "australian company". We all buy Fords for reasons like the thread someone posted the other week about why we all like Ford. Most becasue its been in the family or we liked them ages ago when they were more competitive. GRRRR i write to much BS... (could have kept going all day)

I read somewhere that even though the Commo has more quality issues, that's not what sells. It's the "feeling" and "image" (?) that attracts buyers. Sooo that's what we need, a bit more feel. :bs1:

I didn't like ford because we had it in the family(we do now).few times I had to rent cars from the airport at brisbane and I tried many things,the commodore is one of them which I thought,it was a bit dangerous to drive it above 60.The car swings right and left as if the suspension is 100.000 k old.the car did 2000 at that time so it must be the best any commodore owner could get.It swallowed petrol like an alkoholic,it used almost as my brother's XR8.My brother sometimes smells petrol with a bit of smoke when I floor it.I honestly didn't enjoy driving it compared to forte.But again the idiots out of the windows look at me as if ,good on u you've choosen commodore!
forte don't look that good,but xrs are the sexiest brilliant cars I've ever seen.two years ago I sent photos to some of my friends overseas,never seen any of the XR or the HSV,they all said wow that car with rounded eyes are amazing,what is it?I think if XR had the facility to have equal engine capacity like holdens,no one could argue that it's definitely the better car.

yep. the xr8 now has only 5kw less and 25nm less:bgrrrr: than SS commodore But it stil was enough to take it over the line when tested by both wheels and MOTOR. MOTOR even posted a better lap time with BFYB. When the AV xr8 with dohc 5.4L comes out it will be unstopable.:s5 :s3

Saw a nice grey one going down the line at BroadMeadows today
Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling to see the "250" (kw) label stuck to the top of the engine intake plenum
