VE calais
Old VX got written off a couple days ago (Did 436xxx kms the old trooper), theres a few cheap VE 2010/2011 models but with high 250xxx kms on the clock that I'm looking at, but wondering if theres any common problems I should look out for?

Never bought a car before, the VX was my dads.

Having had 6 VEs over the years BY needs amazing service history for those kms, lads 12/09 is at 215k and running great service every 7500km. Timing chains are worst and cost on V6. Any rattle on stArt up keep away. Otherwise pretty strong car.

Works for me :) must be a server problem o_O

But you could always try googling “australian car review commodore recalls” and be dazzled by the selections available, which may or may not work ;)

Yes adding ve Commodore to the search worked for me, thanks.

If that was true, people should stop driving any overhead cam Falcon motor since 1988 because they all do this once they're no longer new.

It's not necessarily a sign of any problem with an alloytec either.
