Typhoon and Tornado production ceased
After trying to blame the POS AP clutch faults and lack of real power on the Motor journos, I see the boys at the clown factory have come out of denial. I went into a Brisbane ford dealer today to see about replacing a couple of company cars and got told that the Typhoon and Tornado production has ceased until they get the clutch right and this could mean an AP replacement or a different single plate exchange. If this is the case you can bet that the single plate will be the same POS that is fitted to the GTs which will only really ensure that the lads at the clown factory (FPV) dig a deeper hole for themselves before they go into denial about the rattley 6 speed.
As for resale value of the Typhoon, I think that it will take at least a year for the reputation to come good after the next Motor and Wheels magazines present their opinions, and thats only if FPV get the thing right eventully. Common sense dictates that this will give all the early Typhoons a performance car reputation akin to somewhere between a LADA and the early Camiras. As soon as I get back to WA I will put as much distance between the Grey Ghost and myself as possible (I can feel a tear up coming on). As for FPV, what a fcuking clown show
