ANCAP SAFETY is taking a number of precautions to assist in minimising effects on the community. These measures include remote working arrangements for staff and restricted physical contact with the community, our members and stakeholders. These arrangements are not expected to adversely affect the important service we provide to Australian & New Zealand consumers, and ANCAP safety rating information can continue to be accessed via our website. Safety is our priority. Please stay safe.

Ford Falcon

Year Range

Aug 2000 – Sep 2002

Applies to

AU 2 Forte sedan


Large Car

Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of the Ford Falcon AU 2 was released into Australia during 2000. Vehicles tested after 1 January 2008 require Electronic Stability Control in order achieve a 5 star rating. This vehicle was tested prior to this date and may or may not meet this new requirement.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a severe crash. The centre rear seat has a 3-point seat belt. Ford Australia has issued a consumer booklet "Caring 4 Kidz" that gives advice about selecting and fitting child restraints. Recommended child restraints are available from Ford dealers and fitting advice is provided.
