A Ute with the comfort of a sedan


Brake rotors replaced under warranty at 60,000kms.

Auto selector adjusted 3 times.

General Comments:

My previous VP Ute had 280,000kms when I sold it, however it would leave the VS for dead.

The VS is sluggish and uses more fuel than my VP.

The drivers seating position is to close to the steering wheel. The seats are comfortable.

Handles well.

The dogs love riding in the back.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
