2002 Holden Commodore VX Series 2 Equipe 3.8 V6 from Australia and New Zealand
An excellent car if you shop wisely!
The car has been faultless.
The first thing I'd like to say about the VX Commodore, after owning three of them at various stages in my life, is that it's all about getting the right car. I bought this one from a Holden car yard with 80 000km on the clock. It was immaculate in every way, and had a full service history. After 3 years of ownership and 140 000km on the clock, the car has been perfect. The car was properly serviced and was driven sensibly.
The things I most liked about the VX Commodore were its curvaceous styling, comfortable soft interior, and simple yet effective dashboard. These cars have a warm feeling about them, and definitely feel more upmarket and safer than the VN-VS series of cars.
The only criticism about this car is the flimsy design of the petrol cap lid. You see many on the road these days that have snapped off.
While this car has been excellent, the other 2 VX Commodores I had suffered varying issues such as engine oil leaks and steering leaks, so the key to successful VX ownership is to buy a good one that has been well maintained, and everything should be fine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
