Sold the SV6 to a mate last week and picked up my ex Holden MY06 VZ SX6 Adventura in phantom black.
Was looking under the bonnet and I notice on the Adventura that the oil dipstick is on the passenger side...On the SV6 which is suppose to be the same alloytec190 motor the dipstick on the drivers side.
Also the engine covers on the Adventura just say 'Alloytec' not 'Alloytec190' as the SV6 said.
I thought both of these car were powered by the high out-put alloytec motor?
A little confused....
Yep it is the same motor. Guess Adventra owners dont need to be constantly reminded that they have an 'Alloytec 190' motor.
I think you will find that the Adventra has the front diff mounted on the sump of the engine, thus the oil dip stick may have to be moved for clearances.
spot on, we put the SV6 and the Adventra side by side and thats the theory we come up with
BTW nice car! Our SX6 is 2 years old now and still going strong
you'll find it different going from SV6 to SX6. I used to have a problem driving the SV6 into the driveway then getting into the SX6 because it felt heavier and "less fun" to drive.
But when we went on windy roads thats when it had awesome handling because the thing just stuck to the road!
Yeah it's a nice car, few little annoying defects I need to get rectifed under warranty....Has that bloody annoying alloytec engien clattering noise on cold starting..
Sadly being MY06 it doesn't have the illuminated mulit-function steering wheels controls at night and no globebox light
Yeah compared to the SV6 it feels much heavier...305kgs to be precise.
