I love my WH Statesman to death. It has 96000kms on the clock at the moment and is a great car to drive. That said, it has had its share of minor problems, which the dealer has happily rectified under my used car warranty. I will definitely buy another Statesman... or Caprice... or possibly a grange...!!
I'm the happy owner of a WH Series II supercharged 6. What an amazing car, very nice cruiser and comfort levels are exceptional. I put some 20inch rims on and lowered it, and it still drives very well. Universal pulley running 10psi. All round I would suggest anyone owns one. 9/10.
I have a 99 gen3 Statesman. It is great car to drive, but I will say it has 172k on it now, and needs a new gear box. Apart from that, I will buy a Statesman again. Keep the good work up Holden.
My WH 2000 Caprice now has 300,000 km on the clock and drives like new. Regular servicing and replacement of any parts when required has kept it in excellent condition.
There are no problems with the drive gear interior or body work. Would have to be the best car I have owned and can't see myself departing with it as no other cars have the options, room and style this one has.
Gotta love it!
I have a WH Caprice; nice car, but I have nothing but problem after problem.
1. Sway bar bushes, sway bracket, sway bar rubbers, sway bar nuts have been replaced 13 times.
2. Blanks replaced twice.
3. Stereo replace twice.
4. Leak in car from the front end. Had to replace carpet, and the problem is still not fixed, and the car is full of rust.
5. Sensors in the wheels replaced twice.
6. Sensors replaced on front, and rear bumper replaced twice.
And still got ongoing problems that Holden won't fix to date 2010.
Great car, whatever, 2010, and still got problems.
