WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN RODEO

The V6 petrol engine was far from perfect in the Rodeo with some reports of higher-than-acceptable oil consumption. If the engine ran too low on oil, the rings and bearings would both suffer, requiring a major engine rebuild.

The later Alloytec version of the V6 was also prone to stretched timing chains. In extreme cases, the chain could snap, potentially destroying the engine. Early signs are a check-engine light as the stretch in the chain allows the valve timing to wander. Even if the chain remains intact, a stretched chain will require replacement.

As with any commercial vehicle, the chances of buying an ex-fleet car are higher than they are with a sedan. So check any Rodeo for signs of hard use and adjust the asking price accordingly.

Four-wheel-drive variants also need a close check underneath, for damage and signs that they've been abused off-road.
