1998 Holden Commodore VT Berlina 3.8 Ecotec
Reliable, sensible, power when you need it, and heaps of room
Sway bar link snapped 6 months after purchase, but that's very common at the km it's done.
The driver's window wiper spring snapped in the first week.
The seats are very comfortable, and are awesome on road trips.
City driving gas doesn't last long - 14L/100km, but on road trips it's fantastic, 8-9L/100km, and the torque up hills is perfect, it just glides up.
Very reliable; only those two things broke during ownership of the Commy. Not bad for 3 years.
I highly recommend buying one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
