Friday Sydney M Herald Drive
I see GM Australias Marketing Dept...oops I mean the SMH drive, are at it again.
It marks Falcons COTY with a small article by Joshua Dowling that starts
"Ford deserves accolades for the new Falcon.... But it no car of the year"
And then gives the rest of the article saying how it does not deserve the award, how the Commy is unbeatable for fuel economy, how it cant martch magna or camry for refinement,how driving dynamics are the same (funny everyone else says the Falcons dynamics match Euro $150K cars, and shame Merc according to Wheels).
Then it finishes with "Falcon hasnt won coty since 1966, holden has won 9 times in 40 years."
there are lies, damned lies and statistics, lwt us not forget one of holdens wins was for camira (gag) and ford have in fact won it 5 times if you want to count "all models" like they did for holden.
And I note during the week, they ran item on falcon coty in herald and went on about recalls and reliability problem. No mention of commodores numerous recalls and famous poor build quality and reliability woes....
So Joshua, what colour is your new Holden?
