Hey people!! just wanted to through a random question out there...
so here it goes what is with hate on the VT's, majority of people hate them, and bag the **** out of them! I just don't understand it or are they the new VN that people hang **** on?
I do own a VT Clubsport R8 so I could just be naive to its faults but there couldn't be too many!!!.... Either way I'm just pissed of with people calling the VT's crap!!! Mine is actually a very solid car and goes around tight twisty roads better than the mr2 I had before it! :blah blah: it's just generally one of the best four door family cars I have driven, thats why I bought it!! and I have drove a fing **** load!

IMO so many young people buy them as a first car and then either don't know how or can't afford to maintain them
the cars then develop so many faults and this is what people refer to
like you said it was the VN before this and in 5 years it will be VY, VZ
The VT was not as good a car as VY, VZ with bettter IRS, improved transmission cooling, chev V8

I had a vt Calais a few years ago on my P's while most people I knew had vr/vs's I loved it although now I think there a so many of them getting around that are flogged out and cheap. It's getting harder and harder to find neat vt's.

A mate had a vt for years, he treats all his cars like crap and he never had a problem.
I personally have no issue with them-every following model had a little fix or tweak to correct something but thats simply evolution.
Enjoy your ride!

VT, Last of the 5ltr & first of the LS1

One motor which made more noise than power in the obese whale & the other motor which had a world of issues that were not revised until the VX series.

Lets not get started about the poor IRS design in the VT as well.

Kind of makes sense, But no need to make a thread about it.

Cheers
Mat

There are a lot of useless threads on here, so why not another one??
My daughter has a VT Clubby as well, with last of Holden engine. Also has a VZ Clubby.
She prefers to drive the VT. Although its not stock.
I think as said, cheap these days, and the bogans getting them soon brings out the haters(should be the drivers, not the cars)
Its a bit like the anti ricer brigade, nothing wrong with the cars, only what some twat does to them.
