Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HSV GTS

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HSV GTS (2013 TO 2017)

The very last HSV GTSs had all moved to a supercharged engine, so a service record is absolutely crucial as these engines ran their oil hotter than ever before.

Listen for a ticking noise on start-up that could be dud hydraulic lifters. If that's the case they need to be replaced, so check the rocker bearings and the valve springs while you're in there.

The electric power-steering on these cars could suddenly stop working for no reason and then magically start to work again the next time the car was started.

The problem was traced to corrosion entering the wiring connectors and causing the assistance motor to stop randomly.

The GTS was also recalled to check the torque on the ball-joint bolts in the front end which may have been installed incorrectly at the factory.

A dealer can confirm whether this has been done.
