Next part of this episode of Test Drive, the introduction of the new FG Falcon. Ok, lotsa new stuff on the Falcon, but, in the real world, away from the sissy-bars and lesbian-encouraging female-only-gyms, what point is it all and will it be suitable in ten or more years? Yeah, that's right, most of the stuff in the cabin of the new Falcon will be obsolete and useless in a few years. Like the recent models that had stereos that could not easily be upgraded or altered (meaning the average second-hand car buyer had no use for the Falcon, which diminishes its value on the second-hand market and onlookers translate that to the new cars and so buy Commodores, Magnas, Camry's or foreign-built cars)these lovely new cars will have a much lower value in coming years than that of a Commodore of the same age. It's all well and good to have lots of beaut toys in the cab, but they've got to be able to be usable in ten to twenty years and upgradability should be paramount on the minds of the car's developers; alas it is not.
TD FG Falcon Introduction 11-05-2008 C
Ok, here's the "Safety" bloke from the tv show, Test Drive. Right, sure, safety's fine, but if you don't crash and you can avoid trouble, what use is all that safety crap? Well, nothing, that's what. All this modern safety stuff is for sooks and substandard drivers. However, these drivers do exist, though I personally believe that driver's licenses shouldn't be handed out so willy-nilly and only the best of the best should EVER be allowed to drive on our roads and that would A: remove a lot of cars from our roads and B: remove almost any need for safety features on our vehicles. Still, things are as they are and as it turns out, the new FG Falcon is a brilliant piece of safety equipment.
