2002 HSV Senator Signature VY 5.7L V8 from Australia and New Zealand
Very little. The premium brake package is very very powerful, but prone to warped discs, which is annoying.
Headlight performance wasn't impressive until I upgraded to xenon globes.
Front sway bar links failed - normal problem. Cheap to fix.
I have now replaced this car with a VE Senator after the truly decent run I had out of the VY.
The VY was comfortable, very well equipped, and totally reliable in the time I had it. It required normal servicing and a battery in 3 years and 60 odd thousand kms.
Coulson seats were superb. The VE seats don't come close.
The transmission could have been smarter, but did the job.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
