Holden at its paramount
Front speaker casing rattles when sound system is on at a reasonable volume.
Carpet trims not properly fitted and coming out at plastic seam in back footwell. As well as excess carpet bubble behind the accelerator and brake pedal.
Purchased from the dealer as a "Police Spec" Holden SV6 VE 2007. But local law enforcement had ordered too much, sending them back to Holden. Had only done 50km.
Features added include sump guard, covert button (deactivates all interior and exterior lighting), speed trap button?, extra battery, bigger disc brakes, reverse sensors and police horn.
The billion dollar baby has finally paid off. The all new VE is what Holden proclaims it to be!
The handling is perfect in all bends and tight situations. With the added ESP it keeps you in control. Even letting you have fun on the road, taking the tight bends. Compared to other ESP cars I have driven, this is the best; it's so discrete yet strong.
The performance is at its best. Compared to previous models I've driven of the S SV6, this is the best. The power is there when needed; a slip of the sports mode button and you're off.
Comes best in effect in overtaking or simply off for a joy ride. Have even taken on an older Holden HSV, and the SV6 was off!
The interior design and sound system is at its peak! Even for non leather seats it's terrific!
Safety is the main priority these days, and the SV6 sustains a high level of safety with the whole airbag package.
Overall the Holden VE SV6 is an affordable family performance sedan. The spacious and safe cabin is awesome for the kids! The power and steering behind the car is magnificent.
The car is good on gas, but as with all Holdens, the economy varies on how you drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
