I think in this case it is. When there's a chance of fire in the engine bay which could've been easily avoided with a well thought out design rather than stuffing cardboard in the engine bay, then I think they deserve to get a serve. If it happened to Ford, I'd feel the same way.DONUT KING said:That is true, I am not disputing that what I am disputing is slaging off a whole car because of a few problems. I am sure there are a few problems with the AU/AUII but is it worth slagging off the whole car/manufacturer about?
Yep, thats true.DONUT KING said:That is kinda dodgy but I still believe what I said stands, overall Holden, Ford, Toyota and Mitsubishi makes a decent car for the price within out local market, and things are only getting better :thumbup:
No the board hasn't gone communist.Martin said:Isnt what gms00 said is his opinion? Arnt we allowed to express our opinion on here? Has this board suddenly gone Communist?

The simple answer to that is we don't need it but not long ago I test drove an auto five speed with a triptronic type shift option and I have to tell you it was miles ahead of any four speed. The extra ratio just allows that greater scope for fuel consumption gains and this is going to be increasing important in years to come. T series kind of all ready has the shift option that you talk of and I found the box in the TS to be very good. The computer actual show 5 th gear when the box locks up.sporto said:Why the hell do we need a 5 speed auto in a Falcon could someone please explain the benefits to me because I can't really see any bonus of having it rather than to say that we are equal with Hyundai and Mitsi.
But who really wants to be compared with Hyundai.
All I ever read in car mags is that another gear is generally wasted in Australia, unless you are going to be driving in the NT for the life of the car and are looking to keep the revs down. The Falcon has enough low down torque to only have 3 gears, which reduces complications which can reduce problems to the owners. We have a damm good auto box at the moment, the adaptive shift is one of the best and all it is lacking is the tiptronic style shifter which allows the best of both worlds.
