VF SV6
A VF SV6 around 2016 so a VFII. Is there anything in particular I should be looking for? What are the common faults with a VF Commodore? What would be a decent price for one?
The one I'm looking at is a 2016 SV6 with 114,000km on it and they want $15.5K for it. Is that a reasonable price?

Also, given the choice, would you plump for a SV6 or a Calais? (A Calais is another one I'm looking at).

Thanks in advance for any advice!

What we’re saying is:
If you’re looking for a long term investment and not just a runaround, or if you’re into your cars, look into the v8 model if you can afford it. You’ll be rewarded with greater resale and reliability imo.

Ahhh, now I get it! Sorry, slow learning curve...
I think the Calais is the best looking VF by far, but the SV6 has the sport look to match the SS, which makes it popular. I guess it comes down to what you like best, but if you're talking V6s, the Calais should hold better value.
