1987 Holden Commodore SL 3.0ltr 6 cylinder nat. asp. from Australia and New Zealand
Practical car for parts with a bit of power to boot
Odometer disengaging and turning over wrong columns (instead of 100 meter increments, 1000 kms!). Under warranty and being fixed. Apparently a common problem with VL's.
Some brackets on dashboard cracked causing movement. Cheap a/c gas fitted which will trash seals in system.
Well, I paid top dollar but I got myself a VL with only 25,000kms on it! I have all the service papers to prove it, in the last 3 years it has done under 1000 kms! It still has the original tyres on it (about another 4000kms to go). I am respraying the bonnet because of stone chips. Apart from that its immaculate. The steering wheel and pedal grips look untouched. Its almost weird.
Drives like new (obviously), I have always liked VL's and although its the plain jane model the condition makes up for it. Handles nicely with a bit of poke.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
