Great car, just expensive to maintain
At 59,000 km Heater control valve replaced.
At 80,000 km Dashboard globes replaced.
At 80,000 km Re-circulation button replaced (LED blown).
At 80,000 km Windscreen washer pump replaced / unblocked squirters (due to poor stream of water).
At 96,000 km New ignition barrel, key gets stuck in hot weather.
Driver's seat creaks.
Rear suspension creaks - faulty rose bushes (common fault)
Rear passenger electric window - auto up / down feature doesn't work.
Radio turns on full blast during the winter months in the morning.
This car is a quick and economical car (6.6 l/100km highway & 9.0 l/100km city)
However replacement parts are so damn expensive. To save big bucks, buy replacement parts in the UK.
Servicing the car is ridiculous, not only the price but the accessibility of parts due to being a V6 makes it difficult to replace parts and Holden will charge you accordingly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
