The car isn't really that bad, Holden's warranty and after sales service is 1 star
So I (foolishly) bought a ZB RS wagon, and had a Holden genuine towbar fitted by the dealer. Now the park assist doesn't work and my local dealer who is 40 minutes closer than the dealer I bought it from won't fix it. Sure they tried a few simple things but now they are saying they need to remove the rear bumper and it won't be covered by warranty!!! Freaking unbelievable!! I am the first private owner of this car (it is a dealer demo) and it has 4 years warranty left. The original dealer is happy to have a look but they are over an hours drive...away and I will need to get a hire car whilst they try to fix it. Do not buy a holden, worst most useless warranty ever. I even had 2 different people from Holden give me 2 different stories, one even suggested had I had the towbar fitted interstate that I would have to return to that dealer, absolutely ludicrous. Now I have to return to the dealer that sold me the car and fitted the towbar, as this is not a quick fix I will probably have to hire a car, so don't be fooled into thinking a warranty means no out of pocketr expenses, it doesn't. UPDATE : IT GETS WORSE I urge everybody to think twice before buying a Holden as it would appear that the "we will continue to support our product" is complete and utter crap. I won't get into the fact I believe the ZB commodore is at best, an average car, however I would like to point out that they are clearly not stocking a great deal of parts. My crash repairer told me yesterday that a front door (YES, A FRONT DOOR FOR A 2018 COMMODORE) was not available in Australia, and he was told 10 to 12 weeks for a door to come from Germany. Fortunately he found a good secondhand door here in WA but we still have to wait 2 weeks for the rest of the parts. So think twice before buying an imported holden, that warranty is less valuable than toilet paper if they have no parts
