2003 Holden Vectra CD 2.2 Litre
No real problems to date except I have to add a litre of oil every 5000km.
The standard tyres are also pretty average and don't last very long on New Zealand's coarse chip seal roads.
This is a high use reps car having already done 45,000km in just seven months. I find the Vectra ideal for this role because it is so comfortable, quiet and relaxing to drive. Fuel consumption is also pretty good at around 37 MPG.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

A brief update on this car.
It has just turned over 70,000ks and continues to give good service. Of most interest is the oil consumption stopped at around 55,000ks and I haven't had to add any oil since then.
Tire use continues to be an issue however. I can't get more than 25,000ks out of a tire despite trying different brands.

Another update on this car. It has just flicked over 100,000ks and continues to provide excellent service.

This car now has 125,000k's on it and continues to perform well and apart from regular servicing nothing has gone wrong. Only thing I can fault is rear suspension noise on choppy surfaces is more evident now than when the car was new.
