    So I picked up my 2015 Sportwagon today for $15380 with 8 months rego & 63k on the clock & I dare say it'll be the closest thing to me getting a new Holden.

    I bought the car knowing that there was a possible recall on the power steering & I rang Holden with the vin number & it's already booked in to fix in about 3 week's, pretty good I say!.

    Looks great!

    You're happy with how it drives, I assume?

    I've had my Sportwagon for 11 months and am very pleased with it.

    The rear view access is a little restricted compared to previous drive { Subaru Outback } but, I love the 'truthful' wingmirrors.

    P.S. Does the drivers internal rear view mirror slightly 'enhance' ( fatten, not magnify ) ?

    Just kidding obviously. ;)
    We have an MY17 SV6 Sportwagon for a company car. I really enjoy driving it. I also had a 2011 poison ivy Sportwagon, which I really liked too. Versatile and good looking. Just keep the services up to date and ideally, change oil and filter half way through the service intervals. I've always done this and never had a problem with a SIDI V6. Happy motoring!

    Don't know what I'm looking at that, but can see it is a 2015 SV6 Sportswagon; some have a completely different and more detailed front job, but all the same, it's a step up into modernity that is very contagious after that first, tentative test drive! My SV6 SW has 64,900 and is minty/unmarked. Appears to be the Black Edition; will have a good perve around it on the weekend, not now while I'm juggling coffee, keyboard and kids...


    Wise. Do the same with the rego plate wherever and whenever that is visible in pics posted online.

    Indeed, coz no one sees your rego plate driving on the roads.

    Not a point, as in daily life we are surrounded by cars at every turn and straight.
    It's what goes on with people trawling the web for opportunities that is a problem.
    The means, what and wherewithall exist for savvy dark web navigators to glean a disturbing amount of information from faces and rego plates that are visible online. It's part of identity theft, and not by any means on a minor scale.

    .....anything you post online.

    Also do some research on the ability of your mobile phone / google home etc to capture voice and provide you with targeted advertising and who knows what else.

    That's a presumption. Google is not in my home.

    My choice of chariot is a 65 HD Special & I recently spied a really nice one on facebook & I could tell by the Shopping Centre in the background where the photos where taken as I knew the area & I even pinpoint the house too.
    I pm the fella to tell that landmarks in pictures ain't a good idea.
