Nothing!

The car is heaps of fun to drive, the zippy engine purrs easily at 140 kilometers per hour. It's great to drive around the town in, and has decent looks compared to boring Korean or Japanese makes.

I also have a Holden Barina SB and mine too is a Barina SB. I have had no problems with the car I find the car fun and funky to drive, its excellent on the open road. Mine is up to 70,000 kilometers and still runs perfectly and I'd recommend one to anyone wanting to purchase a zippy little machine.
