A high priced, unreliable performance car
After 3 weeks of use there was a small knocking noise whenever I started the engine. Later it constantly occurred. I took the car to the dealer and they said they had to look into it further. I was then told that the piston clearance to the bore was the problem and that they had to re-bore the engine. I didn't like the fact that my car was being taken apart to be re-bored, but I took the situation cool. After getting the car back in a weeks time, the knocking noise was gone, but is starting to come back again. I am about to get my car checked up soon.
This is my first car from Holden, and already, I'm having second thoughts of ever buying a Holden again.
This car is a good car to thrash, but reliability is one of the cars weak points.
It's a comfortable car to have, and has lots of leg room.
It drinks little when on highways, but beware when you're driving around in the city, that's when it drinks like a horse.
The ride is good, but I also have a new BA Falcon XR8, and when compared together, the Falcon wins hands down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
