2007 Holden Calais V 6.0 V8 from Australia and New Zealand


I like it


Very few niggly problems that have occurred with this car.

Hand brake needed to be adjusted, and the BCM needed to be reflashed.

That's pretty much it.

General Comments:

This is an excellent handler for its size and weight. Has decent go in it, and the brakes work well also.

The A-pillar is a little large, but it gives me a reason to check around more when going into a intersection and what not.

Not much of a fan of the hand brake design, but it's not like I need it on all the time.

Has all the bells and whistles that I need in a car.

It's been a real joy to own, and it's a very comfortable and roomy car to drive.

Even though there is some negative reviews about the new VE, I would like to put a positive review up for a change.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Nice review; I have a Calais V8, not a Calais V, but all in all I love mine.

I've got the Calais V V8, and it's the best car I've ever driven.
