Holden down to its last 2000 cars, some dealers already taking down signs

Holden is believed to be down to its last 2000 or so new cars, after another 1100 vehicles were reported as sold in July. Numerous dealers have already begun taking down signage and some already have new car brands taking their place. Some empty Holden showrooms are displaying used cars until another new automotive brand can be installed. CarAdvice has been told by a number of dealer sources Holden has about 2000 or so vehicles in dealer stock, holding yards, and in transit.

Where does this leave you with your car's warranty?
