Summary:

Love it, most practical car I have ever owned

Faults:

No problems whatsoever with this vehicle.

I am actually quite impressed with its performance, both towing and acceleration.

Quiet to drive, comfortable and a real mans workhorse when needed.

Very practical car indeed.

Uses a bit of fuel when pushed hard, but normal driving produces about 12L/100km.

Overall very happy indeed.

General Comments:

I use the car to get to work and back, and also for duties on the weekend when I need to load things.

I use 30L at 120km in distance. Is there a way to get more km for less or the same fuel from a Holden 2004 ute?

Summary:

Looks good, goes great

Faults:

The 'ride height' of the car needed adjusting at about 17,000kms. I noticed that the inside front tires were wearing excessively so I took it up to the dealer. Fixed under warranty and no further problems.

General Comments:

Fuel economy of the turbo diesel is better than I expected. I do mostly highway driving and get 9.7 liters per 100km.

Performance and pulling power of the diesel is great. I have towed my EF Ford on a car trailer and had no problems.

Comfort and handling are great. Very nice driving off road as well.

Summary:

A genuine blokes truck with plenty of bite

Faults:

Absolutely nothing has gone wrong with this vehicle.

General Comments:

The LT 2004 auto petrol rodeo is bar none the most impressive vehicle in this class I've ever owned or driven.

It's fast, reliable and responsive.

I'm a semi pro bodybuilder thus I require a lot of shoulder and leg room in my vehicles, the rodeo fits the bill nicely.
