    also, it would be handy if all recall information could be edited into the first post? just a suggestion.

    Not specifically recall as far as I'm aware - but it IS a well known fault with a series of techline fixes.

    That's one of the issues I had. There's a techline for it. Didn't work completely though - I'd say it's 80% better - for now at least

    Just a quick follow up, also, on the tailgate recall for the utes - mine was done a couple of weeks back.

    There's no visible difference (aside form the fact the parts are shiny! lol) and there's no change to the release action - just feels like there is less flex in the mechanism.

    Series two sportwagon

    Well today my Holden dealer rang me and told me there is a safety recall on the series two sportwagon, due to some pin in the rear seat fold downs. And due to Christmas they are ringing all the owners instead of mailing.

    I went straight down there, 15min job no biggie, just a heads up

    there is no latch recall visable to the customer!!the latch now closes fully instead of stayin open 2-3mm causing it to open under extreme load....
    the wagon seat prob was a very limited case about 1in 1000 only when the seat carpet got caught!!

    VE SS Commodore ute 2009
    Date created: 9th July 2010

    Product description VE Ute

    ISOVIN range:
    6G1E#42###L100048 - 6G1E#42###L458251
    6G1E#42###L923162 - 6G1E#42###L983869

    Target Number: 34,432
    Campaign Number: 10-H-04
    What are the hazards? The tailgate may unlatch when impacted rearwards.
    What are the defects? A condition can occur under specific operating conditions where the tailgate may unlatch when impacted rearwards with sufficient energy by unsecured objects placed in the rear cargo tray.
    Supplier GM Holden Ltd
    What should consumers do? If the Ute's cargo tray is loaded, owners should either use a Holden tonneau cover or ensure items are firmly restrained within the tray and not loaded against the tailgate.

    Contact your authorised Holden delaership for a free-of-charge rework (timing will be subject to availability of parts).

    I've got to get this done, but the dealers wont give you a free loan car for the day. I'm not paying for a loan car when its they're fault and it take a day to fix!
    So because I need my car for work Its going to cost me a days pay, or $50 for a loan car. So I'm putting it off for now until I can figure out another option.

    VE Series II SS-V Redline Ute
    Hey guys,

    FYI - Just had my Series II SS-V Redline Ute in for its 3000KM service on Thursday 5th May, and they informed me of a recall to check the fuel pump. Mine was all good, nothing needed replacing.

    Usually on the drivers side pillar... open your door it should be near your Tyre placard.

    Considering that more than half the content is imported...

    And does it matter to you where its imported FROM?

    Maybe you just dont realise that a lot of so-called european sourced parts are only euro in brand, like Bosch, but still made in other parts of the world, and not always China

    Even the so-called Chevy engines are no longer made in the USA, which isnt necessarily bad, lots of junk comes from USA too

    Holden don't use 'Chevy' engines, they are GM.

    Oh dear Red Centre Bluey. I am going to have to confiscate your shovel. Answering a post that's 6 years old! Rombles hasn't been on the forum since 2009.

    aaron, you know that, and I know it too, but it doesnt cure all the bogans driving around with FAIL bowtie badges on their drives.

    Hell, even seen bowties on 6 cylinder commodores, poor demented souls...

    Can I put Buick badges on my Caprices?
