1977 Holden Kingswood SL 4.2 from Australia and New Zealand
-Needed new pressure switch for tranny ($49.00)
-Needed new water pump ($90.00)
-Wouldn't start, took the mechanic 2 days to find that one of the fuses for the gas was shorted by the cigarette lighter ($36.00)
-Needs new vinyl roof.
This is a dual fuel car, and for the amount of negative things that I heard about gas, I've had no problems with it at all. I try to run it on petrol about once every month (about 1 in 4 tanks) and I have an additive, which works extremely well. The gas does make acceleration a bit slower, but normal cruising is exactly the same, as many people said... this is a cruise car, its not made to go fast.
I use it as my everyday car, as as stated I've had minimal problems from the car. Itll be 30 years old in about a year, so my congrats to Holden for making such an awsome car.
Its got the dual exhausts and sounds awsome, it really is a head turner. Awsome for a cruise down the cost on a warm Sunday afternoon with the windows down...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
