1985 Holden Commodore VK Executive 3.3L 6 Cylinder EFI from Australia and New Zealand
Good first car buy with the potential to become something greater
After a few weeks of having the car the cam shaft gears went whilst I was going up a hill.
Alternator died on a trip to Geelong also killing the battery.
Back seat cracked needed to be re-covered.
For an older model car the engine is very reliable, fuel efficient and has a comfortable amount of grunt.
Engine is very easy for a mildly mechanically minded person to maintain and repair.
Parts are common and cheap, a trip to the local wreckers or to the local car care centre will turn up most parts.
The interior is quite nice for its age, although the square speedometer is annoying for monitoring exact speeds.
Upgrade options for the engine are quite varied, the various 202 engines Holden has produced allow a young rev-head to indulge in Do-It-Yourself upgrades.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
