World's biggest lemon
Steering rack mounting bracket broken, causing very vague steering.
Started leaking coolant.
Engine management light intermittently coming on.
Stability links worn, replaced and noises went away for about a week, and started clunking again soon after.
Engine mount broken. replaced. Very expensive compared to overseas prices (for equivalent models Vauxhall/Opel).
Clunking noise when stopping, turning and starting off (after replacing various front end bits).
I owned this car for about 4 months. I lost a lot of money when I traded it in, but I was happy to write the money off because it was such a pain. It was a nightmare to maintain. I spent well over $2,500 in repairs in the 4 months I owned it, and I'd fix one thing, and another would give up.
I will never buy another Holden. I have owned well over 20 cars, mostly Japanese, and this was my first foray into an European designed and built car. Never again.
This was without a doubt the worst car I have ever owned, and after a 4 month nightmare, I was happy to write off the money I spent on it, just so that I could walk away from it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
