Forget this car in Australia, it's just not suited - buy a Commodore
Gear box (16000 AUD rebuild).
After fighting the Vectra and Holden for five years to iron out the build quality and reliability issues, I finally surrendered after I collected the car from the Holden main dealer.
After they had had a second attempt at fixing the gear box, and I drove it home, on arrival smoke was pouring from under the bonnet. They had forgotten to tighten the union into the power steering pump, and the power steering fluid had blown out. Also some of the gear box to engine block bolts had only been fitted finger tight; I was told that apprentices were used for refit work.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
