Amazing car

published

I drive this car daily, brought it for cheap. Have had no problems other than tyre wear on the car. They are mechanically great! I have owned a few cars and this one is the best!!

Purchased in April 2019 for $3,000.00.

Great car smooth nice breaking has plenty of power I find seats hard to get used to only downfall is

published

Nice car to drive it's smooth and quiet handles well good breaking no real bad noises until you get over 100km there's noise in dash
Nice finish in interior but the plastic moulding on drivers side seat made very poorly and always breaks and they aren't cheap unless you leave hanging or put couple of ugly tech screws to hold in place

The Reliable Deal

published

To drive a Vy Commodore to the shops, or to the Qld border, is the same comfort experience. It rides well, has excess power for any road, is very comfortable and spacious, what more can I say. It uses 10.5litres around home, crashes to only 7.2litres on a trip, just does the business. Very reliable, but a pleasure to drive.

gave nearly 7 years of good service

published

Bought this car with 136500 km on the clock and only just sold it with 341000 km on the clock. Only things that i had to replace outside normal service items included the radiator, alternator and the cd player. Went through rear tyres at an alarming rate however this is a common vy problem. Only sold the car because the fuel sender was playing up and the transmission was starting to show signs of wear. Motor and diff were still perfect

2002 VY Wagon Practical Australian Motoring

published

Bought my VY with 138,000 on the clock. It now has 230,000, has not missed a beat. Just a V6 Lumina Wagon, parts are easy to come by and cheap if you get them from a wrecker. The 16"tyres only set me back about $150 each and the car does well on short and long trips. I now need extra seats but don't want to do the bolt on thing in the back of my wagon, sad thing is, Holden have failed to realise this market. The 7 seat Captiva which I also own is a joke car and the back two seats are as useful as a screen door on a sub! Commodore wagon makes a lot of smart motoring. Now build a high rise version with 7 practical seats and I'll buy it.
Cheap fun Australian motoring
Getting a little old tec wise and few more rattles

Review for SS model.

Great car (bought new) but having sold a Clubsport to buy it, really notice the lack of handling at high speeds. Keeping in mind that it costs about $20K less than my previous car, I shouldn't complain. Someone else said it handles like a goat. Never driven a goat personally, but feel the comment is a bit unfair. At the price its a good sturdy reliable vehicle. Never had a problem with it, never missed a beat and built so much better than my new ute. Guess that is progress!
Commodore SS: Great performance, drivers car, cheap bang for buck
Could handle a little better

Review for SS model.

Love this car ive had it lowered handles much better than stock but would never step foot in a holden dealer again
Great highway cruiser or everday driver comfy seats plenty of power sits on 110klm all day in hot weather with air con flat out i plan to keep this car for a long time
Paint flakes off door handles and fuel cap boot is very small only took it to holden dealership once for service what a bunch of morons now take it elsewhere can use heaps of fuel when you drive it hard but i usually get 12 litres per 100

Review for SS model.

In general I love it! I would definately consider upgrading to a newer model when available. I also love the interior space and has plenty of room for 3 teenagers in the backseat.
I like this car as it is very powerful, never struggles to get up hills and the cruise control is accurate.
Too much Plasic interior, its pretty exy on fuel.

Review for SS model.

Great buy. Perfect driving. Worth the money used to buy it, i recommend it. Have not had any sort of problem with it.
Great engine, air conditioning, runs well. Lots of compartments.
Seat leather is not great quality and wears. Bad fuel consumption
