    Hi Team, my wagon has just started shuddering when I accelerate from a stop and turn left or right. Any clues as to what may be happening? Cheers Michael

    Hi Big Al, It has whatever is standard in a 2006 SVZ and diff oil has not been changed recently. Cheers M

    There is something more akin to a clunk-clunk-clunk when starting off and turning/straight ahead at slow speed; differential doing what differentials normally do (for Holden, at least). I have it; not a fault of failure though it certainly scares a lot of owners. Differential oil is usually checked at scheduled services. Checks for excessive wear or play in joints also done at these services. If not, make sure they are.
