What car?

My dad is thinking about buying a new but used car, particulary a falcon of some description.

He wants to spend around $20,000 and is leaning toward a AU2. If anyone has any ideas on any falcon from EF to AU, i would like to know which would be the best buy. And also any problems or happiness that you have had with a particular model.

Cheers

I would probably get a NF or NL LTD. Failing that get a NF or NL Fairlane Ghia (Full leather of course). Failing that go the EF or EL Fairmont Ghia with the full leather. Cant go wrong and he will be very happy!!!

Get a low km NF Fairlane V8 for around $16k. You can't beat the cast iron Windsor donk.

Get an AU Fairmont, better to drive and cheaper to run, and I am speaking from experience here, having owned an EF and now an AU.
