On the same day I bought my Holden VR the motor blew up on my way home, so the car dealer picked it up and replaced the motor.
When I went back to pick it up the second time it broke down whilst I was stopped at the lights waiting for them to change green, so again the car dealer had to come pick it up and fix it.
The third time I went back to pick it up the radiator had a severe leakage problem, but I still took it home.
Once I had it home it was just one problem after another for the first year.
The first time I took it in for a warranty of fitness check after I brought it home I had to:
-replace the whole exhaust system.
-replace rear shock absorbers.
-replace front brakes and.
-replace all caster and link rod bushes.
Not even 6 months after that I still had problems.
The wiring will never be right. (I also own another 1991 Holden Executive which has the same problem.) The boot light stays on sometimes, the inside lights won't turn off unless you take the bulb out and the small right hand side indicator light needs a good bang sometimes so it'll work.
The remote key had to be replaced as the car wouldn't start a lot of the time.
Horn needed to be fixed as it only went when it wanted to.
The alternator has been replaced twice.
The power steering system had to be replaced as it was leaking.
Tie rods needed replacing.
Boot won't stay open.
Central locking doesn't work properly as it only locks 2 of the 4 doors and unlocks 3 of the 4 doors.
The interior trims are unattached themselves IE. roof material sagging and floor carpet lifting.
Has a very bad rust problem around the spare wheel area.
Have recently had to replace the master braking system.
