Fantastic Performance, easy handling, long distance capability fantastic, Performs well and low noise
I like the comfort of adjustable manouvering with the front seats, plenty of leg room back and front, clear vision through windshield, dashboard does not block any view.

Owned it for close to 8 years and never had a problem.
Q:How would I best describe my VS Commodore?
A: A product of its management.
One thing that buyers of this car-age-demographic often forget is that this car is likely to be subject to two main factors affecting it's performance and behaviour:
1) How it was driven and maintained in its earlier years.
2) How you choose to drive and maintain it.
Ownership and maintenance: One of the best features of cars of this era is the fact that it still encompasses an element of owner serviceability; that is, most home/backyard mechanics can mainta...in them with ease. Routine services, minor repairs and a raft of modifications can be easily done with a modest selection of tools and intermediate mechanical knowledge. Assuming that you chose to utilise a trustworthy mechanic to maintain it for you, you'll find that VR/VS Commodore parts are relatively inexpensive, making servicing much cheaper. Second hand parts are cheap and easy to get, Wrecking yards/ebay/gumtree are all choking with VR/VS parts of every description.
This is my wife's car. It has been a real sweet vehicle. It just passed 302,000 kms.
It may be 15 years old, but it is a great car. Built to last for many, many years of driving pleasure to come. Solid, comfortable and reliable. Easy to park, drive and handles well.

Tyres last an average of four and a half years. Standard features are good, too - even if there was no added electric windows or a trip computer. She has used premium fuel - RON 95, that ...

That seems like it's extremely likely to be a electrics problem. As it's difficult to find electrode faults so i would recommend to take the car to a holden australia workshop or even better - perhaps a reasonable auto electrician workshop may be able to help.
I also found ultratune auto service centres experts at diagnosis and repairs of faults
