  • Common FAQs
  • With a list of little luxuries as standard and a solid reputation for performance and reliability, the Holden Berlina stacks up as a good buy. If high levels of interior comfort are a priority, consider the Honda Accord as well.
  • Given that the Holden Berlina is essentially a Commodore in a slightly more expensive suit, it has a top speed of 200 km/h with a 0 to 100 km/h performance of 8.5 seconds. It's comparable to the Toyota Aurion.
  • You can buy a 2007 model Holden Berlina, dealer used., from $7,990 or pick up a 2011 Holden Berlina VE2 Sportswagon from $14,490 on Gumtree. A 2009 Ford Falcon G6, by comparison, can be found on Gumtree for as much as $12,500.
  • As a temporary go-between in the Holden line-up, separating the Commodore and the Calais, the Holden Berlina represents great value for money. Even with high kilometres on the clock, a wide array of the models on Gumtree are well maintained.
  • The Holden Berlina has a 3.6-litre V6 engine generating 175kW of power at 6,000rpm. In the same power and performance range, the Toyota Aurion 3.5-litre V6 delivers 200kW at 6,200rpm.

SIMILAR MODELS TO HOLDEN COMMODORE BERLINA

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN COMMODORE BERLINA (2006-2013)

Quality was a big improvement in this model Berlina, with much better fit and finish inside the cabin. Even so, check that everything electrical works properly.

Check discolouration around the headliner for signs that the (optional) sunroof is leaking.

The V8 engine was pretty well sorted by this stage (before being dropped in 2010), but it's still worth starting it from cold and listening for the ticking sound of a dud hydraulic lifter. Check for oil leaks, too.

The V6 engine also needs a sharp ear, mainly to detect signs of a stretched (and rattling) timing chain. While some engines suffered chain-stretch at low kilometres and have been fixed, others seem to develop it later in life.

It's a big, expensive job to put right, so have it checked by an expert if in any doubt.

The V6 also has a habit of developing sludge in its intake tract and this needs to be cleaned out manually. The first sign of this is sluggish performance, difficult starting, erratic idling or a 'check-engine' light illuminating.
