Friday Drive TE 50 article

Must have been hard but the team gave the Te the gong. 3 out of 5 stars.

Although it clearly states it is better than the clubsport, I can't help feeling they talked more on the bad points than what made the package good.

They had issues with the Engine, and gearbox as well as fuel consumption. In the point column they mentioned poor quality, but no where in the main body was an explaination given. The fact Paul was involved I guess makes this a good write up!

I wonder if they even drove a car because the pictures they showed was a red car and a blue. Then when they showed the interior it was a blue TS50, not a red TE50 that they said theri test car was.

I have the article yes but scanning really isn't an option anymore. Unless Drive put the article up on monday then there is no link that I know of.

Here are some quotes though

"The TE50 is a bit of a dinosaur, with a cabin like a tarted up taxi, but it is a nice way to go hunting."

"The TE50 has great grip huge reserves of stopping power and a light and gentle balance that allows you to feel the road and how the car is working with or against it.. But when you add the engine to the equation things don't go as smoothly. And the five speed manual doesn't help"

"its grumpy down low, then really lights up beyond 3000revs"

"A new muscular ford takes a rare win over Holden"
