Had our VE once in a blue moon the a/C wasn't cold. Just turned car off and restart and all good 229k now still nice and cold.
Get the code off the box and match it, stupid Holden made running changes and different sensor plugs etc that don't match
Yep there's 3 somehow mine were bent giving slop and thud sound
Check drive line bolts I bent a few in my VE and got the same thud issue
Holden really struggle with the fleet sales. Misses runs a national fleet of 150 trucks cars, 90% are ford because of there discount and service...
Car auctions are so odd it's not funny. Buying a px2 ranger as Sa govt auctions ex SA water had my eye on a few found a good one late 15 model...
Geez that's cheap, ex NSW cop cars with 115 to 120km are 26 to 28k at auctions
It's all personal having owned 5 VE,s still have 2 have always enjoyed the steering handling, my VF2 SS just not that connected feel like the VE
How old is the current lancer platform
229k and 5w30, didn't like the 5w 40 in winter
Engine light on the stretched code up. I've heard of a few 3l VFS having issues
We just had an awesome experience with Holden regarding our TM Barina.
The ‘beast’ did an oil cooler and required part to be replaced- rad hoses,...

Personally I agree if you've had full Holden service history they should cough up a bit of $$$. Lots of Ford Rangers have issues and are...
What's people's getting out of there
Tuned boxes, our VE series one AFM l76 had done a easy 80k when we sold it guy after us got it tuned box...
Never driven a Vf2 V8 auto in tuned form, the ford performance mode thingy is all automated, adapts to your driving style.
VE steering way better than Car feel
Ever driven a zf way ahead of a STOKE GM 6 pd, even tuned not a match a tuned zf is a gun
You'd be first person I've heard prefers the GM auto over the ZF, that's one area Holden's been behind for a long time.
Quite a few directors and magnums popped up after the so called sold out reports. Mainly dealers trying to get more $$$ think it backfired a lot....
Made to many and overpriced
Electric or hydrogen will be the option. People will soon start with cyber truck upgrades etc
I live an hr North Adelaide lots of open countryside driving enjoying V8 for overtaking ha ha, my Vf2 will last me to the end of petrol
It's funny I'm watching my mother in law struggling to get in her little SUV shitbox, gets in the commodore easy, getting out a bit harder though....
In the modern times I don't understand the small SUV buying they don't have grunt fuel economy is AVG and handling is AVG, rather a commie any day
Monaros CV8 still pull big $$$
Hell yeah and a few had the 195 engine option to help a little
Would love a 5l 195kw VT SS manual but hard to find
If you already have tune otr won't be a big change, really with those mods gain from 3500rpm upwards.
Our ve 12/09 build comes on when parked in +40 degrees and first left turn. Restart and goes away.
Battery is first check then rear abs sensor...
KMs a bit high but how a car is looked after etc plays a big part, our 12/09 Berlina dual fuel is at 225k and drives great and with price of fuel...
The sport is fucked ATM I've lost interest the car of the future **** has ruined it. Bring back hq racing( if any left)

Farmers ones, the clear ones look like cheap aftermarket lights to me
heard that hurricane can be loud, hopefully you love it.
I've got rex headers on my vf with kpm 3" system, also have pacemaker 1 7/8 headers and 3" kpm on VE head/ cam ute sound both the same to be...
Not common at all, big end bearings yes but oiling issues with pumps and sludge build up
For the $$ rebuilding the LS1 go a stroker kit or a LS3 crate. Baby 2500 stall on small cam will be over 300rwkw easy.
Holden customer care can be good, they got back to me with details on black manuals SS builds for 16, can't remember the details no but was like...
Pretty common people drive be V6 for years with these codes no issues, others destroy engines quick, depends on servicing.
