1999 Holden Vectra CD 2.5 V6 from Australia and New Zealand
The car will cut out at traffic lights.
The engine overheated due to a radiator leak.
I had the radiator replaced, and then the upper hose leaked.
Engine now has a severe misfire, which causes the car to shake and splutter.
Car has developed a bad oil leak.
Car has been serviced regularly (oil change at 150 000k's, another at 155000k's).
The car performs well when it is working, but the costs of repairs are outrageous.
I am appalled by how much money I have had to spend on this car in such a short amount of time. It seems that I am spending money on it every month, just to keep the engine working.
The car is unreliable and Holden should never have imported such a lemon to Australia. I regret making my purchase, and when I trade the sucker in, I'll never look back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
