Question New car purchase - please recommend dealer in Melbourne

Hi people.

Well i've been talking about buying a ford for quite some time now, well the time may have come for me to replace the old galant, seems it's on it's last legs...

Now, idealy i would've liked to have waited till series 2 for obvious weight reduction and a certain product out of the FPV stables, but it seems i could be forced to jump in earlier.

So... if i do go for it earlier than planned, i will be going for the XR6T.

I live in Melbourne, so could anybody please advise some reputable dealers, guys that will look after me, etc.

The ones on my list at the moment are, Courtney & Paterson in Heidelberg, and Strapp Ford in Doncaster... anybody have any dealings with these guys???

Any advise appreciated.

Chris.

If you were selecting Strapps (a site sponsor) then I'd contact Sathis at the Burwood Centre on 9888 9255.
There are a number of threads here that have spoken highly of their service and I would endorse those comments 100%.

If you call let him know you are from FF.

Cheers

Thanks guys for the resposes.

It seems the problem isn't as serious as first thought. I left work early today to try and get to the bottom of it, it was simply a set of dud spark plug leads that was causing the extreme missing, roughness and lack of power.

A new set of leads and plugs, and she's running as good as new. So fortunately it seems i can stick to my anitial plan.

thanks again guys.
