The Car I Would Buy New If I Could Afford It. — This is the best car I have ever driven. It is so responsive and sharp that I alway feel safe no matter what the conditions. It is pure luxury with all that leather and suede, gadgets and the cup holders are the best I have ever seen. (I walways check out the cup holders!)

Safe, comfy and luxurious.  Just what I want in a car.

Cons

My personalised plates don't match the look.

Pre Loved But Still Remains A One Owner Car. — All the power you need when you need it. Strurdy and solid, makes you feel safe. Looks mature, respectable and classy. Love it. Most cars use about the same amount of fuel these days, 10.3 /100k. I am happy with that.

Pros

Wads of torque, all the modcons expected in the luxury lineup

Cons

Auto trans, Fuel econonmy

35

Holden Calais — Performance is as expected from the Gen3. Bitch on fuel, great on the highway. Has all the creature comforts as expected from the luxury lineup. Shortcoming would have to be the poor choice of auto trans from Holden. Being the Achilles heal of the car, I'm now on my 3rd box. And ive lost count of how many times ive replaced rear tires. heh

If You Have Money To Modify And Make It Sound Like Thunder Is Arriving Then Awesome. By Anthony

The VL Turbo has no engine in it at the moment so it goes nowhere. The transmission is busted from all the burnouts and hard changes so that doesn't help performance. It drinks too much and smells of ... Read More
