The Ferndale is an American muscle car parked outside Fleetari Repair Shop. The car shows some resemblance to a 6th generation, early 70's Dodge Coronet. Fleetari, the repair shop owner offers the player to borrow it when they leave their Satsuma there for service. It is also possible to take the Ferndale for a drive without leaving the Satsuma at the repair shop.
The Ferndale is also a good alternative to the Hayosiko. It's fast on the highways, with a cruising speed of around 140–150 km/h, and has a huge trunk and back seats, which can fit all of the groceries and most of the ordered Satsuma upgrades.
The fuel filler cap is located underneath a chrome flap above the rear license plate. The Ferndale uses gasoline as fuel.
The Ferndale has a traditional three-speed automatic with a torque converter. It has a green interior with a custom paint job. The speedometer is in miles per hour, rather than kilometres, like other vehicles in the game. Here are some approximate speed conversions to keep in mind:
The Ferndale doesn't have traction control, so if you are on dirt roads and keep on flooring it in 1st gear, it will cause it to spin, eventually losing control.
|KPH / km/h||MPH|
There is no parking brake, only a park gear which will lock the transmission and wheels. Hold the foot brake while stationary to switch between park (P), reverse (R), neutral (N) or drive (D). Releasing the brake while in reverse or drive will cause the car to crawl. You can change between drive and manual gear selections (2 and 1) while moving. These are mostly used as "crawler" gears. Mostly use for towing heavy loads, or burnouts!
Be gentle with the accelerator on dirt roads as the rear wheels will spin and you will lose control easily. If using a keyboard, you can avoid spinning out by driving on dirt roads in 2nd gear (2), then switching to drive (D) on the highway to take advantage of third gear above 60 MPH.
The car is also very sensitive to even small movements with the steering wheel when driving on dirt. Keep that in mind because one wrong move can screw you over.
- In the February 5th 2017 update, Fleetari asks the player if they could bring back his car. If they won't, Fleetari says he will punish the player. After some time, he'll leave the player a note and will steal the Satsuma and leave it in a swamp.
- Before the firelike paint job (before release patches), it had a black, yellow and red exterior and a black interior. The older Ferndale, including the green interior and the American flag at the top, it had a light blue exterior, but the interior was brown.
