My wife loved this car at first, but it seems the older it gets, the more problems it has. Most cars, this occurs as per the norm, but this Viva is from 2007 and is already is falling apart. Slow auto transmission changes, basic feeling air con, sluggish engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I had an oil leak from day one. All Holden would do is fix it, but never replace the car. Now after 7 years, the driver's seat is broken and there are major oil leaks. Now everything is going, I'm looking for another car. I'm very scared in case it happens again. We bought it new; never trust a salesman.
