1999 Holden Commodore VS 3.8L V6
Recommended to a P driver as a first car, someone who wants a reliable car or a tradesman
Rear differential worn out.
Fuel pump faulty.
A very reliable car. Pretty good on fuel for a Ute. The engine is a bit loud, but the sound is very nice. The comfort of the seats are adequate. Handles well, drives well, the mags look amazing on it.
The LSD makes driving a little more exciting with the 147 kW of power. I timed it from 0-60 in 4.2 secs. It isn't a performance car, but for its weight and and how it accelerates, it tries to tell you otherwise. It's a gutsy and loud V6 engine, showing off to other cars as it accelerates along the highway.
The interior is good. The seats are comfy, however the ride can be a bit bumpy if it's low as you go over bumps and potholes. The dashboard is easy to use, and the air conditioner works very well. Bonus points if the Ute has a subwoofer, as every Ute should have one.
The tub is spacious, allowing bigger and more stuff to be put on. It fits more stuff than any dual cab. Overall, it is a reliable, enjoyable and good car to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
