1999 Holden Vectra GLX 2.0 from Australia and New Zealand
First started with a faulty camshaft sensor, then blown head gasket that was still leaking after repair. Found that there was an etching on the block and it needed re skimming. This was due to previous owners not using radiator inhibitor. Then the water pump seal blew, new water pump required. All in all cost $$$$$
It is a nice looking car and handles well on the road, nice to drive. But the problem is that they are not built to last to high mileage, I feel. So now with things continuing to go wrong with it, it has become a problem car. I recommend not purchasing one! Even tho looks and handling are appealing, the mechanical costs are too high as the mileage gets up. I've had other cars before with similar mileage and never this many problems. Stick with proven long distance models like the Toyotas...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
