Great reliable car few issues

Purchased my late 2000 Commodore executive with police pack from Brisbane government auctions 40,000km.
Its been a great car to drive and still goes like new no rattling 20 years on and 170,000km.
The only issue was a pully collapsed, still ran, replaced myself. Had roof lining replaced as heat damaged .
Secrete is change oil and filter regularly, keep cooling system serviced .
Hate to sell love the car. Show details

This is Perfect! I won't be discontinuing the use of this Car

I bought this car from a car sale yard back in 2013 (2000 vx Commodore station wagon) and I've never had that much of a problem with this car which the only problem I had was that it needed a new "iac valve". At that time a "professional mechanic" told me that it had this problem or that problem" which kept affecting my hip pocket $$$ in the end. So I then took my car to a "back yard mechanic" who found the problem, which all it needed was a new "iac valve" never had a problem ever since. This is the best car I've ever owned and still is in 2020 Show details

flogged this car on m1 for 5 years

i bought this cheap on duel fuel for $4700. drove it up and down the m1/f3 for 5 days a week / 6 days a week. never serviced it. petrol in the tank and water in the windscreen wiper. took 5 and half years before the cost of rego did not make any sense.

What more can I say “Cheap and Reliable”

The headline says it all. I brought this car back in 2013 and put on over 150,000 trouble free km. The car done over 350,000km and still doesn’t burn or use any oil or water. The good things about these cars are they are cheap in parts and if you do need parts they are easy to come by.

Satisfied

Never had any major issue except that it is not that fuel efficient. We use it just once or twice a week. It has a large machine and despite being an old model, we are not yet considering on replacing it as we are still satisfied to its performance since we regularly service it.

This is a wonderful car, and could n't do with out it

The experience of driving the VX commodore is comfortable, performance I could not ask any more from a V6 engine, handling is terrific, not much noise. I can go from Newcastle to Blacktown and back on 50.00. I therefore would recommend such a vehicle to anyone that is looking for a decent car.

My vx ss commodore has started having a problem. It starts and runs fine but when I accelerate a bit heavy the dash cluster will light up like a Christmas tree and all warning lights come on, the guages drop to zero, my stereo cuts out then it goes back to normal then will do it again over and over. I disconnected the abs connector and went for a drive and it still happens. I have had issues with my traction control staying off when starting the car and switch wouldn't work until I re start the car and track light would go out and switch would work. Since I disconnected the abs connector and 5he car still does it does that mean it's not the abs module. I am stumped any help would be much appreciated.
