1989 Holden Commodore VN 3.8 Litre from Australia and New Zealand
A Very high performance machine for the year
Only ever had a broken fan belt at only about 130,000 with the car and maybe the window wasn't operational for a while and some other few things. Suspension isn't that great at the moment either. Also the RPM meter has stopped only a few times.
Considering this car has got a all powerful V6 in it running at abou 125Kw it has got to be one of the most powerful cars made that year. I must tell you it is one of the best cars I've driving and pulls out a lot of power. The interior is still nearly as good as when I bought it meaning that it's not in-fact cheap and very confortable inside. The interior is very nice as well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

That's very unusual for a VN. Most people find the interior to be very cheap and ugly. As for your list of problems, I would think it would be a lot longer than one broken fan belt. The VN was an alright car in the late 80's, but not so good now.

ALthough the VN has a fairly average interior, what 1980's model car is better? Come on it's pretty good for 15 or so years old.

It's a 1989 model so we can't really expect a BMW interior. Plus this car's main calling card is its power and grunt, yes it vibrates, yes it shudders, yes it feels a bit like driving a bus, yes you can feel every gear change in the auto, yes it has a growl. But this is all part of the beauty of this car... It's raw. :-) I love mine. No issues a quick trip to the mechanic can't fix.
