1995 Holden Calibra 2.5 V6 from Australia and New Zealand
Good looking, fun to drive, but unreliable
Every few weeks, it would go into limp home mode with the engine management, crawl along at about 20kmh, then come good.
Power steering had to be overhauled at 65000ks.
Front discs worn out at 61000ks.
Regular blows bulbs in the brake light on the hatch lid.
Gas struts worn out on the rear hatch at 64000ks.
Driver's door would lock itself if shut too hard.
Did all the right things, bought a low kilometre V6 Calibra with full Holden dealership service history prior to me buying it. And then had a lot of problems and expense, which you would not expect on a 60000ks car.
Loved the look of the car, and was comfortable and had lots of features.
A good looking car, let down by cheap components and poor build quality.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
