Re: Whats the highest mileage BA you have seen?

Yellow cabs (this is Brisbane) have a sweet heart deal with Toyota on a crap pack Camry... They tried to scratch each others backs.. It hasnt worked, the owners that bought the Camrys are finding they cannot even come close to the Ford for the prolonged work loads taxis do. So most owners are still getting ex-fleet AU3 and BA's...

I think i prefer seen toyota's as taxi rather then fords. Bit annoying when ur sitting in ur nice au to look over and see one as a smashed up taxi.

anyone digs at a falcon's reliability, i point out that most taxis are falcons, and they need to be pretty reliable

I was in a taxi about 4am yesterday morning, BA wagon with 147,000 on the clock and a horrible diff-ish noise coming from the back.

Re: Whats the highest mileage BA you have seen?

Mostly BAs down my way although there still are a few AUs. Why do they have such shocking diff noise?
