1993 Holden Commodore VP 3.8 litre V6 from Australia and New Zealand
Drag track giant killer!
Power steering line is faulty and leaks a very small amount of fluid, when stationary over night.
Glove box does not operate correctly, and needs simple repairs.
The car has been put through its paces since I have gained ownership, and I have made some observations:
The car is very responsive, and creates an incredible amount of torque.
The standard car runs a 15.1 - 15.6 quarter mile, and with enough willing, can race off Skylines and other well known performance cars.
The standard brakes are often smoked because of the amount of power the car creates over short distances. This can be solved by replacing the standard brakes with performance brakes.
My VP runs 11.8secs over the quarter mile (400m); admittedly I have done mine up a lot. This performance version of the car easily outruns most high performance cars. eg. Skyline, WRX, RX7, etc...etc..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
