1996 Holden Commodore VS 3.8 ECOTECH from Australia and New Zealand
A great car
I have had to replace 2 pulleys and a drive belt.
It had a flat spot and it required new plug leads.
Air-conditioning needs re-gassing every year.
The VS's acceleration is amazingly quick for a fairly weighty car. With Lowered King Springs the ride is smooth and stable when taking corners reasonably fast. Bigger tyres (235\45\17 LWT) really give you a sense of stability and traction and are far better in all weather conditions. I have fitted a Panasonic CD player with 2X12 inch Alpine TypeS subs and a Alpine V12 amplifier. Sounds great. Future mods may include a set of extractors, a cold air intake and a sports exhaust system. The cabin is very spacious and plenty of room for 5 people. My VS was not made on a Monday. It is very responsive, quicker than my dads VT Commodore and gives most 5 litre V8's a run for their money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
