Worth driving and experiencing

published

Surprising how well mannered the steering, suspension and engine work so well together. Amazing value for the money that would easily cost another 50 to 60 K to buy something else as good from Europe. Not the big guzzler of yesteryear with av in town around 12litre/100lm and country drive av 8litre/100km and you could do better but its hard not to give it some punch occasionally. Enjoy it now as they won't last long and no more Australian cars.

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.

We're happy with our car we bought last year.

published

It's a good driving car love the heads up display, it's a really good car to drive & it looks good as well it looks better than the VE's, we would recommend this car. It has really good safety features & the sat Nav is good as well. Our uncle use to work for Holdens at Woodville & Elizabeth. So it was cheaper to buy a new car instead of a second hand car.

Driver's like a racing car

published

In my opinion, this model car, handles very well on the road. However work still needs to be done in other areas. Electrical problems are a major issue with cruise control and computer. Engine hydraulic mounts leak oil and need replacing too often. Oil consumption is a little extreme and needs to be checked all the time.

The best Aussie car ever

published

Sold a VE 2010 Omega and got a 2015 SV6 Storm Sedan, it handles beautifully a little tyre noise on rough roads but less than the Omega, the interior is very upmarket and the Sat Nav works great. Not had it long enough for reliability tests but up to now it runs perfectly.

pity they're going

published

I must have an almost perfect engine- almost no oil consumption, plenty of power, purrs like a kitten, 200,000 km no major work on engine. My 4sp auto was replaced and the new one was never super smooth either. Apart from brake wear and tear i've had no other problem mechanically.
Blind spots due to roof pillars are a constant reason to be super careful just dangerous really.
Drivers seat comfort should be better. A BF2 wagon drives heaps better!
All in all a really good car with a few quirks to whinge about

The Holden VF Commodore is by far the best ever made, Bimodle Exhaust, safety features, fuel economy has all been nailed by GMH, everything from starting the car from outside, blind spot alert, holdens mylink infotainment system, bluetooth, voice activation, leather interior, alloy wheels, electronic steering, head up display, self parking, and so much more

305 000km, still going strong

published

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.

How to reset the "Change oil light" on the dash.

published

First with car off, Push and hold Start / stop button on for approx. 10 seconds or when dash lights flash. Then push the accelerator pedal to the floor in 3 quick motions and then push start / stop button again to turn off. All reset.
Holding the button down the 10 seconds is important. The Holden dealership wanted to charge $20 to reset this. What a joke. It took 30 seconds to reset. This may be needed if you get the car serviced before the oil change reminder light comes on.

Reliable, Comfortable & Efficient

published

Purchased wagon in 2011 with 50,000k. Serviced per schedule and never a problem. Well engineered, quiet and comfortable. The 3.6 is smooth and refined, and is very efficient; particularly on highway. Plenty of room for the family and luggage on long trips, and a decent factory sound system for ambiance.

I think in the dash settings you may be able to turn it off. When you put the key into the ignition don't turn the engine on. Just turn on accessories and wait for the dash to ask you to enter the menu and follow the prompts.
