Re: My Mates Gen III SS ute is a bucket of crap!
Yeah, the poor bloke. But this has been documented ever since those ungodly engines started coming out in the VT sII...
As for the problems encountered by a Falcon, fair enough everyone knows the head gaskets are a time bomb - surely thats 10000x easier to fix than internal engine damage. From what i hear, the usual fix for the GenIII is to ship another one out from the US. No wonder GMH are keen on letting people's warranty expire before doing this.
But what about a Ford V8? Put your hand up if ya Windsor or Boss has been replaced due to poor manufacturing tolerances or consumes 1L oil per 1000km.
