Name: Tracy Crawford
Car Make: HOLDEN
Car Model: Commodore VY executive series II
Year of Manufacture: 11/2003
110,000 kms on the clock it needs a new engine, I purchased it 6 weeks prior privatley from a guy who serviced it every 10,000kms log book proof, I serviced and had it checked on purchase, wed 15th I heard a noise but no warning lights or beeps I took it to my mechanic who informed me the engine had blown I was devastated.
HOLDEN after I paid $569 for a diagnostic check told me it was not a mechanical problem it was a premature failing of the front end bearing. I am having a new engine put in cost approx $4000 +, I simply can not understand how the car did not alert me to the problem as I would have of course got it fixed way before the engine died.
I am very dissapointed with holden, this car had been meticuloulsy looked after and it still failed at 110,000 kms.
