Re: Problems with EX-taxis?
I've been reading up on pretty much anything relating to falcons in the hunt for my first car. Just today I found an ex-taxi EL for sale for $2500, with 350 000k's, running LPG.
What do you think - anything to watch out for or is it just a good bargain?
Well m8 i got a ex taxi as well at x'mass time and the things i looked at was stress in the quarter panals and in the front where the engine is ...... other then that i just layed car carpet in it fixed the paint (FORD devil yellow ) and a new dash as the old 1 had a heap of holes in it and the speedo from 834,000 to 78,000 was a bonus :) things like rotors and struts are cheap ... taxis get a r.w.c. every 6 mths after they are 2 years old so most times they are in ok condition but still waste some of your cash first and get a r.w.c. done before you buy it mine was $1,000 and i got it out of the trading post i had a good look first and it turned out a realy great buy
