2003 Holden Barina XC CD 5 Door Hatch 1.4 from Australia and New Zealand
Economical and very reliable
To tell the honest truth, nothing, zero.
Bought car for our daughter's 16th birthday in New Zealand (70500 km), had it shipped over to Australia and it's still going strong (217500 km).
Was told in NZ that the exhaust was going, like 3 years ago, guess what?... it is still fine.
Recently had a cam belt, water pump and tensioners replaced. Also fitted a new battery, 17" tyres and mags, and have done an oil change and spark plugs myself. Fitted discs and pads twice so far. To be honest, do not trust garages; prefer doing the work myself.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
