2002 Holden Acclaim VX Series II Wagon 3.8L ECOTEC- V6 from Australia and New Zealand
All in all a great family wagon, with power, safety, tonnes of room and luxury
Flat tyre on the day after purchase: (
The Commodore Acclaim VXII Wagon is an awesome family car, with luxuries, safety - including ABS, Airbags and Traction Control as well as a very reliable and powerful V6 engine.
The car also looks great, with a modern body shape making it appear slick and streamlined.
The car drives very well, cruise control being a nice feature to have for those long freeway trips to the coast and back. It is also more responsive than the VT commodore and apparently uses less petrol, as well as gear changes being smoother and more unnoticeable.
The trip computer provides information such as Estimated range left with current fuel load and Estimated time of arrival, when given the distance for the journey. An over-speed function is also included to save people with leadfoots some money.
Leg room, both for the driver, front and rear passengers is exceptional, however the car is over 5 metres long.
The seats are also comfortable and fine to sit in for long trips.
The CD player and radio system with automatic antenna is great, especially with the ergonomic audio steering wheel mounted controls.
The car comes standard with an alarm system and deadlocks to protect and increase the security of the car and valuables which may be contained within.
Fuel consumption is good, especially when considering the size of the car and engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
