Major rattle in the dash (went to Holden, and they couldn't fix it).

Exhaust manifolds and resonator got cracks in them. Got them fixed at the dealership. They wouldn't them fix under warranty, because it was Holden's aftermarket exhaust.

Tyres wore badly.

Had really bad road noise (went to the dealership; it had no noise insulation).

General Comments:

The car drove like crap. The engine ran really rough. Performance marks, it's not too bad, but that's because I went from a 6 cylinder to a V8. To be honest, the 6 cylinder was smoother and felt more grunty.

Seats were uncomfortable and wore really bad. The stitching in the leather came away, and the leather had holes worn into it.

Tyres from new went bald after 250 kilometers.

Knocking noise from the motor.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

It would be impossible for tyres to go bald after 250 km mate.
