1994 Holden Commodore VR series 2 3.8 V6 from Australia and New Zealand
Good first car, but take it easy with accelerator
Front end bushes and a link needed to be replaced due to wear.
However this was all covered in my 3 month warranty.
Air conditioner needs re- gassed as well.
Car corners great for big car, loads of power and torque.
Fun to drive, I'm a P plater and reckon its best thing since sliced bread.
Build quality is quite solid.
Bags of room, comfy seats and looks nice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well I have a VR series II 1994 and I am P plater... and seriously I have had some problems... I have changed all the bushes on it, front and back... now I have found out at 170 000km my auto transmition is burnt out, hasn't died on me though need replacement asap $1700 worth, the really bad kick was I paid $6500 for the car.

Had the air - con TX valve replaced and regas nearly 200 bucks worth.
Only other issue is boot leak. The whole VR and VS series are prone to it. The small welded body panels between boot lid and rear quarter window are prone to corrosion for some reason and let in water.

In Penola S.A. you can get second hand gearboxes in very good condition for about $100.
