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
This is general information and should not be relied on as purchasing advice.

Servicing

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.
