Summary:

A true quality built car

Faults:

CV Joints needed replacing at 135,000k $350.

Radiator header tank repair at 164,000 K. $120.

Auto choke needed replacement.$60.

Door light switch replaced.$ 15.

General Comments:

The engine is nearly bulletproof. It was cooked 3 times. Once when the radiator cap failed, two other times times when I found the radiator leak. The engine was so hot that it could hardly be cranked.

Even if the valve lifters click, there is very little to worry about as the engine will go forever.

The three dealers in Brisbane have never had to rebuild a V6 engine ever. That is truely amazing.

The car is total comfort. The leather trim is superb. Electric seats are great. Smooth ride. Real performance if you want to boot it. Great low down torque like a v8.

Previous carVauxhall Senator

Summary:

A smooth and comfortable cruiser, fully equipped

Faults:

Not much for a high-miler. Brake servo (£500), suspension bushes, usual brakes and one exhaust. Battery lasted 8.5 years from new.

General Comments:

Very smooth engine but undergeared at only 20 mph/1000rpm (less than my wife's 1.4 Astra!)

Heavy understeerer, shows that it was built for the US market. Excellent build, comfortable, all of the gadgets still work.
