HOLDEN COMMODORE SS Used Car Review

The SS badge first appeared on the Commodore in 1982 as part of Holden's process to register the then VH model for touring car racing. Buyers could choose SS variants of the Commodore sedan and ute, and later wagon. SS (and SS-V) eventually came to represent the flagship version of the regular Commodore range before the famous badge was abandoned in late 2017 when Holden's famous large car became an import rather than locally built model.

Pros

Cons

  • Last versions offer especially great bang for your buck
  • Superb ride and handling of VE/VF models (2006-2017)
  • Effortlessly strong V8 performance
  • Not collectors' items yet so affordable used
  • V8 engines not exactly fuel-efficient
  • Fit and finish not perfect on VE-generation models
  • Reliability issues with older V8s (such as 5.7L)
  • Rear-drive Commodore no longer produced, and SS badge gone
This is general information and should not be relied on as purchasing advice.
