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

Hi All, Here is an expression of interest for my 1982 VH SL/E. Matching numbers car built in Adelaide factory, supposedly as a Christmas special. Exterior is in great condition with only a few minor marks. Has had any rust repaired and a close door repsray done by previous owner. Previous has run on gas however i got that removed and had a new valve lubrication system put in so it runs perfectly on unleaded. Has a solid 253 V8 in it. Only issue is the main seal has started to leak and I believe
