1988 Holden Commodore VT V6 Ecotec from Australia and New Zealand
Roomy and powerful
Nothing really wrong with the make, as I have acquired this car second hand, but:
Steering at low speeds makes a clunking noise, although theres no restriction.
Wheels are noisy, even though I have sound deadened the wheel arches.
The driver side seat (with power height adjust) frame broke off, annoying.
Horn doesn't work, airbag doesn't seem to work (been in an accident, I guess, the person who sold it to me is a bit dodgy)
Weather-shield (Holden, small ones) don't really work, removal leaves double sided tape on the window seals. VERY hard to remove.
Other minor stuff, like loose panels etc.
After driving an Excel around, this car seems so much more powerful. Its fairly comfortable, as it actually has air conditioning.
However, while the car drives much faster than the Excel, the handling feels about the same.
I've had to fix up a fair bit of stuff, but they are all caused by the previous owner, I guess, so I can't really blame Holden.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
