1994 Holden Statesman VR 5.0 V8 from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

Best car I've ever owned or driven by far!

Faults:

Kept stalling when I first bought it. (Ended up being a faulty module.)

The gearbox had a slipping clutch.

General Comments:

The car overall is a dream to drive. Not the quickest car, but it is a Statesman. It's designed for comfort. But the V8 does help it along it's way. The car also rides like a dream with a set of 18" rims and ultra low suspension.

The cabin is nice and roomy, and has been set off well with plenty of lights and embroidery.

The engine is really responsive, and has a great note under revs with an exhaust.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1994 Holden Statesman VR 5.0 V8 from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

Luxury + Power = Perfection

Faults:

Whole front end had to be pulled out, so that an oil leak could be fixed.

Numerous problems with the CD stacker.

Misfire when cold.

General Comments:

I recommend this car for anyone who is after the performance and luxury feel! My car really benefited from an FE2 suspension package and a sports exhaust.

The spacious cabin is a winner, Holden should be congratulated on it. The VR Statesman is also very attractive and looks good with front skirts and rear skirts.
