Check Engine Light is staying on have had my VE II Commodore Berlina International Wagon check at a
We purchased this car brand new and we love it but I do have concerns regarding the check engine light staying on. Need advice on a fix for this that shouldn't cost me $2400.00 in doing so, we have done 134,000km in this car and it is well serviced.
Love my car!
I love my Holden commodore ve, I upgraded from a vt and am so glad I made the leap when I did, the interior of the car is beautiful, the fabrics are soft and comfortable, the drive is smooth with minimal road noise inside. The service costs are really cheap and affordable. Petrol in my car is on the expensive side but it had the power to move and makes me feel safe and secure. Perfect car!!!
Wonderful car with great presence on the road
Love the looks of this car, have had it for 8 years now and is going strong. almost done 144000 kms on it and never any problems apart from regular service with genuine holden parts. Only thing i dont like about it, is the interior. Very cheap plastic and the seats are uncomfortable. Fuel consumption is relatively high as oppossed to Ford XR6.
HOLDEN COMMODORE OMEGA 3 STATION WAGON
Love the power and size, sleek look inside and out. Lots and lots of leg room front and back of car and boot.
With continued and regular servicing which it has had, the car will continue to run smoothly.
Although v6 the gas is completely affordable, a nice alternative to gas guzzlers.
I can't fault anything on this car, love it!!
brought the car and had for just over 1 year and then the gear box went on it (auto)
overheated when first picked up from dealership also tyre nuts were loose
wouldnt buy any new model commodore as they are rubbish
stick to vy and early models and save your self the hassle
Cheap and disappointing
First, let me qualify my review: I bought my 2010 VE Series II Berlina wagon at auction with 266,000kms on it. I have since added another 12,000kms.
- 3.0L V6 engine (Omega and Berlina only got 3.0L)
- 6 speed automatic
- Leather interior (I'm sure it's fake. It's horrible)
- 6 speaker stereo
- Colour touchscreen media centre with Bluetooth connectivity
- Climate control (dual zone)
creat car best commodore i have ever owned
bought this car for $11500.00 as it had high ks on it but to my surprise its been everything I wanted very roomy lots of power and runs like a dream. never had an issue with anything at all. serviced every 6 months and mechanic is so surprised how clean the oil is and there are no oil leaks anywhere for how many ks are on it we thing the engines been reconditioned but not sure. in summing up best best commodore ever. by the way loved the color hazard yellow
Lovely car to drive, handles well and has plenty of power. Great family car with room for everyone, you can even put the doggies in the back! It has leather interior that is easy to clean and the seats are so comfortable. Has a reverse parking camera with sensor, satnav compatible, dual zone air conditioning and fuel efficient with a 3.0 litre engine.
VE II SV6 is sleek and smooth
Great Australian car. The Series II SV6 has excellent handling in both wet and dry conditions. Its steering is true and cruising at highway speeds is very smooth, comparable with cars geared more towards touring than performance. The interior is modern, clean, and has everything you need in a car. Seats are extremely comfortable. Solid reliability with parts readily available and the trade off to the 3.6L V6 engine is running costs are higher than the average sedan.
Has to be the best car of its generation. Smooth look, timeless. Fantastic driving experience, smooth, holds the road, excellent in wet weather, holds the road perfectly. Inside, driving and passenger luxury. Comfortable, adjustable seating, cockpit layout is very driver friendly, everything is at your fingertips, auto lights, responsive cruise control. Has to be the best in its class
Reliable Great Car.
I've had a ve commodore for years and years. Very reliable and haven't had to spend any money on it. Drives great. Very comfortable. Great fuel consumption when driving on the highway. Great car and I would highly recommend it. Looks great and costs next to nothing to run. Engine has plenty of power as well. Couldn't fault the car at all. Been the best car I've ever owned.
Honest, reliable, relatively cheap motoring.
I bought my 2010 series one VE Omega in December 2016, with 134,000km on the clock. 12 months and 38,000km later, I can say it has provided safe, relatively economical and trouble-free transportation for my 100km daily work commute.
I bought the vehicle from a used car dealer for $8900 on the road. The paperwork in the owners handbook suggested it was an country ex-fleet car, and had up-to-date dealer stamped log books - something that I have continued into my ownership.
The interior space is a big draw in the Commodore. Rear passengers have a...massive amount of rear leg room, front passenger and driver are adequately catered for. It has much more space than the TJ Magna that replaced it, which itself had ample room. The interior decor, however, in base Omega trim is very dour and drab. Grey - grey everywhere. The seats are comfortable enough, I rarely have experienced pain or tiredness resulting from discomfort. The side trim on the seat base, however, is prone to breaking off. Connectivity technology is well and truly a product of the times. No bluetooth streaming - only a poor-performing call-only Bluetooth in fact - and an auxiliary jack. Fortunately this is enough to keep connected and entertained on the road. Motoring along, suspension is a little soft (but that could more be 170,000km on old or original components), this is improved somewhat with the fitment of 18" wheels and lower profile tyres. The engine has plenty of power, but the torque is underwhelming. This, and the transmission is definitely a combination more geared toward fuel economy than down low torque. It will struggle handling a modest incline without shifting back to fifth or even fourth. The trade off is decent fuel economy. I get on average a displayed figure of 8.2l/100km in the instrument cluster (which in reality is more a calculated figure of ~8.7L/100km), or 800km+ per tank on mostly highway commuting.
Purchased in December 2016 for A$8,900.00.
This was my dream car and it has lived up to every expectation.
It looks smart and drives great.
i recently drove from south australia to horsham victoria on half a tank of petrol which i think is brilliant.
There is a bit of a blind spot on the sides of the front window but i have learnt to adjust the way i check for cars and it is perfect.
Ok Family car
When I first picked up my ve sv6 I was over the moon. It didnt last long. Commodores are well known for getting tail happy and the ve is no exception in auto taking corners in the very wet felt like taking my life in my hands even with good tires. Then the abs module went then the remote locking. I will say having also driven a vf the steering on the ve is much better . The sidi is marketed for better fuel consumption but it was much higher then expected city driving and not flash on highway.
Problems - I Honestly Ask Myself "Why All The 4 Star Reviews, When These Cars Have So Many Problems"
Having radio problems as security has locked anyone out from resetting the radio.
Replaced the battery, as per the handbook instructions and haven't been able to get into the radio since.
The handbook mentions that for a simple battery change, the radio should be okay, ie when the ignition is turned on the computer should pick up the VIN and march it to the factory fitted radio.
However this is not the case.
Another trip to Holden...
Great looking car. It has plenty of power and more than enough torque. Fuel efficiency is very economical and very easy to maintain . Overtaking performance is exceptional.
Interior need upgrades or changes, so something else should replace black plastic and dark upholstery. The car performs very well and is a pleasure to drive.
great looking car using oil
great looking car drives very well bluetooth cruise control all electrics work very well
however numerous trip to holden dealer do not resolve problem Holden Australia dealt with with it however problems still valid engine seems to be consuming oil by poor or damaged oil rings
they tried to repair but still mot fixed
So Far So Good
I purchased this car second hand. And Appart from some scuffs and minor dints from the usuial culprits and some minor wear n tear on the apolstry the car performs very well and is a pleasure to drive. No problems with the electrics as was the as with my previous 60th Annaversary Sportwagon. It does need new front shock absorbers as the left hand side is shot.
- Commodore VE (2006-2013)
- Verified purchase
It drives amazing haven't had any mechanical problems with it very economical on petrol an easy to maintain so much leg space and the boot space is so big we can fit 2 3 wheeler prams in it along with shopping this car has been a breeze to own I dont regret at all purchasing this car its a good car for me and my little family of 3
Very smooth ride, the car barely makes any noise on the freeway. They don't do too bad on petrol either. I love the interior, the wheel is nice and comfy to hold and everything is easy to find. It is very comfy inside, loads of room for the whole family. It fits my son's car seat very well and isn't cramped or anything. Very spacious boot in the sedan but I do wish you could put all of the back seats down. The series II models are a lot more reliable than the first series, in yet to have mine need anything major fixed. A full tank of petrol is around $80 and lasts 600km. I'd recommend this car to anyone looking for a family car or just a car with lots of room.
