Adequate, tough as nails, old but a known quantity
Nothing yet. For a high km 1990 model it certainly is a bit rough around the edges, but feels like the VN Commodores I remember driving as fleet cars back in the late 1980's and early 1990's. "Clunk" when shifting from shifting from neutral to drive or reverse. Shudder under acceleration as usual for early Commodores.
Bonus - has LPG conversion and runs smoother (especially at idle) on LPG than on petrol. Not so bonus - tatty plastic interior, rattles and squeaks. I suppose it is typical of a 19 year old car though. Plenty of power and somewhat heavy power steering. I would not like to "push it" too hard through corners. Front suspension needs alignment of course.
Now if I installed the cat in the car I wonder would the squeaks be found and eliminated?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
