hello,
Over the last week ive been thinking of buying this

1999 HOLDEN COMMODORE ACCLAIM VT II Private Cars For Sale in SA - carsales.com.au

My dad and his mate whos a machanie went and test drove it two times and my dads mate said its good.

The only problem is that its been a rear end car crash, but its been fixed up?? (Is this a big problem?? for a vt @ 11 - 12 years old ?? Is it normal or?)


Also water gets in to the spare tire bay?? We got told it could be the boot seals, but theres no water on the carpet stuff.. so could it be under the car where its been fixed from the crash? or? could it run down the back of the lights...??


Thanks!!

Hey mate, if i were you i would prolly stay away from it, having been in a crash etc. it could be the start of endless problems with it...

Just my input anyways :)

That's too expensive for what it is. I picked one up for $1700 with only 150,000km on it.

$3-4k tops for a VT in SA unless its supercharged or a V8.

Or look in other states, SA is expensive for VT's.

Looking at the pictures, it looks like the boot is sitting high on the rhs near the rear screen.

How bad was the hit? What was repaired when they fixed it?

It's alot of money for a stock 6 mum's taxi style car that's had a shunt.

Why does it have to be in SA?

I live in SA too but flew to Sydney to get a car a few years ago, then flew to Melbourne the end of last year to get my latest one.

Cost me $600 for the car, flight was about $70 and about $250 fuel to get that car from Syd back to Adelaide, could have easily sold it for $2,000+ back here right away.

The latest one (VT) cost me $1700, about $100 for the flight and another $100 for fuel. Could have sold that back here for $4,000+ straight away, saved $2,000-3,000 if I was to buy the same in SA.

Still if you want to get the first one no one is stopping you, but still for $5,500 and given a few months I could buy 2-3 low km VTs with that money.

You could even get a VY for that much, or a VZ for a extra $500.

Seems you have already made up your mind anyway.
