I hear lots of different stories about the lifespan of an AU and also the BA Falcons. From experience (considering the BA has only been around for a few years) how many KMs do you think that the average person will get from a AU or a BA before it packs it in ? I know that lots of cabbies have gotten over 500,000kms from the AUs so it's not unreasonable to assume the BAs will likely get similar.. but what about us average people out there ?
ps. have the AUs been blowing head gaskets like the EF/EL series did at low kms ?
An EB taxi got to over 1 million kilometeres without ever having the engine opened up!
I know an EF that has over 600,000km's and still going strong.
My parents EB Fairmont has almost 300,000 and never had to do anything to the engine yet.
I don't know about the BA's, but the AU's will last a long time too!
