Re: buying 2003 xr6 what to look for

bad point: on paper that car is two years old already. You would need to be getting $10-$15K off the list price for it to be worthwhile.

www.pickles.com.au

search fixed price vehicles or

www.carnet.com.au

If you pay anymore then $30,000 for a BA XR6 with over 5000 kms then your being ripped off, as for the 2003 model the same goes!

They have BA Fairmont Ghias on there for $34,000 inc Gst with 800 kms on them!

Re: buying 2003 xr6 what to look for

i dont have the xr but do have the xt6 auto (same thing).

I have had the gearbox replaced, the problem was the sequential shift was not working properly like wasent going into the gear when i selected it manually. They tried new resistors etc but when that didn't work got me brand new bos.

washer in the overflow coolant tank nearlly always goes (ford knows this and has placed different washers now)

brake shudder (front discs warped) the ba is aheavy car and the discs are rather small.

other than that i really love the car best car i have owned yet by far, i have had 3 holdens (vl turbo's, really nissans) and five fords.

As others have said i have also seen many xr6's 2003 for under 30 000 the prices you are talking about you can easily get a xr6 turbo. A friend of mine is selling one now for 35 500 and its a 2003 model with under 25 000 km's hes buyiny a new xr8 ute (he loves utes now)
