Disappointed

published

First commodore I have ever owned. A 2002 vy ex police car. I have been a ford user all my life.
The commodore goes great and is smooth but in wet weather it fishtails around corners if going faster than 15 kilometers.
I am told this is normal for a vy. Too scared to drive in wet, how could that be normal?

305 000km, still going strong

was reluctant buying a 3rd hand car with so many k's. So far so good. It would seem to be that all servicing was done as noted in the book. Can be a little thirsty but considering the power and the interior space, not too bad.
Everything still works, pretty good for a 13 year old car. It pays to shop for a used car that has been serviced regularly.

Review for SS model.

Average car, powerful but with all these broken parts I don't think I'd be game to get another. Could just be my luck so take a look at other reviews too, this is only my experience so this is all I can say about the car.
Powerful, strong, leather seats (comfort value). Intimidating at the traffic lights haha.
Gear ratios = eew. Fuel pump blown up, satellie navigation HDD borked, computer offline. Maybe I just got a bad one, but I expected more than this in the first few thousand k's, not this much should be going wrong.

I like the ability to customise many functions, love the look of the car (especially lowered with big wheels). The ride & handling is OK - still prefer my Honda Euro in this respect, but the Calais offers much better leg space out back, more grunt at low revs, and is generally, an easy car to drive. The Euro requires more driver input to get good performance around town so this car is better for the lazy drive. Fuel economy is OK considering size, weight etc.
Re 2003 VY Calais: Classy looks, upgraded interior, better materials.
Still a Commodore underneath - it needs more differentiation.
