1999 Holden Acclaim 3.8 V6 from Australia and New Zealand
Well rounded performance, economy, comfort and safety
Power Steering Pumped Leaked, was replaced.
Front windows rub and squeak against the rubber seal.
When accelerating from low speeds (< 15 km/h), sometimes there is a clunk and a jerk from the drive line.
Front discs were warped, have been replaced.
Driver side rear door central locking and speaker no longer works - obviously a wiring problem.
Occasional fuel can be smelt on hot days.
I really like this car. I wouldn't say that is perfect, but meets my expectations.
No it's not a BMW or Mercedes, but also doesn't cost anywhere near them.
Great that it has dual front airbags, ABS and traction control.
Eats the kilometres on long trips.
Can handle 5 adults when it needs to.
Performance for public roads is more than adequate.
Fuel economy is good considering the size of the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
