Holden Commodore Used Car Review

The Holden Commodore emerged in 1978 as the successor to the Kingswood, and the large car became Australia's best-selling model for 15 consecutive years (between 1996 and2011).This is a record that may never be beaten. A mix of six and eight-cylinder engines in sedan, wagon as well as ute body styles formed a comprehensive Commodore range.. The fastest andmost powerful models sat under the HSV sub-brand. The Commodore's status as an Australian-built model ended in late 2017, though the nameplate has been carried over to an imported, German-built Opel/Vauxhall model - much like the very first-generation version of the Commodore.

Pros

Cons

  • Superb ride and handling of VE/VF models (2006-2017)
  • Spacious, well presented cabins
  • Powerful and great-sounding V8 engines
  • Multiple variants make for a great choice
  • Commonality on the road
  • Now imported rather than designed, engineered and built in Australia
  • Newer, 3.0-litre V6 lacked torque
  • No V8s or rear-wheel drive forthe new Commodore launched in 2018

SIMILAR MODELS TO HOLDEN COMMODORE

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN COMMODORE (VF, 2013 ONWARDS)

On V8 versions, start the car from cold and listen for rattles and ticks from the engine. If they're present, you're probably looking at a car with dud lifters.

The V8 can sometimes ooze a little oil from the rear-main seal. Find where the car is normally parked and check the ground for oily spots.

The six-speed automatic gearbox shouldn't clunk into gear or slur its shifts. And look for a dirty big tow-bar that suggests the thing has hauled huge loads at some point.

A lot of fleets bought the base-model Commodore, too, and while they offer cheap motoring, don't buy an ex-fleet car by accident.
