Fixed oil leaks in valley cover seals (138,000km).
Inlet manifold gasket replaced; was leaking slightly (144,000km).
Link pins in front suspension replaced (144,000km).
Power steering pump leaks slightly, however fluid level appears to be remaining steady.
Interior has been subjected to prolonged sun exposure by past owners; minor fissures in some plastic visible. Passenger's airbag cover is warped; Holden technician advised that this does not impact operation, although will cost ~$150 to replace (not worth it IMO). Common problem in the VS, apparently.
Exhaust resonator is warped; makes more noise than normal, although no loss of performance noted.
Previous owner fitted poor-quality remolded 235/45/17 tyres; tread started separating from tube with still 70% tread left. Replaced with new tyres (145,000km).
Previous owner also inadvertently cycled ignition with instrument cluster removed (while replacing dash speakers); caused airbag computer to register "Warning light failure" error code. Had to get technician with Tech 1 kit to clear code, in order to re-enable airbags.
Sometimes cabin fan and rear window heater will not operate for first few minutes after starting (worst case was ~10min on a cold night, had to wipe rear windscreen by hand). Not sure why this happens?
Fuel gauge needle sometimes sticky and is slightly erratic at times.
Occasionally stalls shortly after cold starting, though subsequent attempts are successful. I think this might be due to the battery being old.
Engine rattles within its mounts; the whole car shakes slightly when stationary.
Rear right passenger door lock solenoid occasionally seizes (will not go down when remote locking) ; this happens rarely, difficult to reproduce.
Burns around 1.5L of oil every 5,000km. Using Penrite HPR30 (20W60), changing at that interval.
Parcel shelf rattles with louder bass frequencies from radio, even though I have factory speakers.
