    09 VE SS-V 6ltr Commodore Wagon
    hi there,
    My names Tom from Melbourne.. I just purchased a Holden Commodore and need some help in regard to service.
    The car has 100K on the clock. The car has red seats and red steering wheel. I am very new to this sports look car.
    The engine is 6 litres and sounds great on a cold start.
    Besides enjoying the car, what service areas should I be looking at first up ? What type of oil should I be using ? Who would be best to service such a car as I am looking at saving a few dollars.
    I can change the oil and filter my self keeping one eye on youtube.

    6litre 2009 stationwagon

    Thank you for answering my questions.
    Tom

    Oil type will be in the owners manual.
    Easy enough to change yourself.
    Consensus now days of for fully synthetic oils. Any of the big brands are bound to be someone’s favourite.

    Make sure your filters are good.

    Check the brake pads.

    Not something to worry about on L76 or L98 engines.

    VE S2 SSV Redline ute
    I have a redline ute with incomplete service history, I'm working my way through a list of service items, in no particular order - plugs and leads, trans service, brake fluid - old stuff was filthy, cabin filter, coolant change, power steering fluid, wiper blades, and diff oil

    Oh holy crap! The cabin filter. Hell yes. Just removed mine and it had a range of mould species growing in that are only found on the floors of cheese factory toilets.

    Wesfill pollen filter and air filter. The Wesfil filters were identical to the Repco and Ryco items and only $20-$30.

    For what its worth, [cheap on eBay] change the Cabin Filter every 30,000k [every second service], and you will have clean fresh all the time.
    [well thats what I do, and its a eye opener to what the filters come out like]
