Just a quick post, in December I flew to Sydney and picked up a rental and after spending time on the south coast with my sister, we continued to drive down the Pacific Highway to Melbourne.
The rental was a BA Falcon and had about 4,500 kms on the clock on pick up, so it was pretty new. There were 5 of us, me, my wife, my 3 sons (17, 14,11) on board with a full boot of 4 suitcases. I can not complain about the performance of the car, the fuel consumption was pretty damn good, considering all the wieght on board, overall was a pretty good experience.
I only had one complaint, and that was the seats, after about an hour, I found the squab of the seats to become very uncomfotable, giving me a numb bum, so as to say, my wife also commented on this. Now in total we did 1600 kms, and after each stint it was so nice to get out of the car to relieve the numb bum.
I know that I dont experience this in either my car (T3 TS50), or my wifes car (Mazda 6). At times I do more than 3 hr stints behind the wheel, in either of these cars, and dont have this problem.
So I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed this or is it just me?
My comment on the BA is as I have said before, its a very nice, capable, easy car to drive, but its not an exciting car to drive, maybe I am just spoilt
