1997 Holden Barina SB Lambada 1.4 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Capable unit, all things working well
Due to the lack of education on these Barinas, the confusion over the temperature gauge moving up to the 100 mark in slow traffic, a lot of owners have been charged unnecessarily for new radiators and flushes etc... I was one. I was then advised by an auto electric man that this is normal... the handbook is very vague on this. Mostly my car runs around 90 to 94... on a constant run.
The main problem is the poor result from the air conditioner... had it all redone; still not great. Now this seems to be the case with these. Holden deny this... otherwise on 95 petrol it runs good. Also the electric fan being made to run constantly may help with keeping the temperature more constant... and running cooler
Not a too bad little unit.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
