I Would Own One Of These Again. :-) — A car with ample horsepower under the bonnet and loads of comfort, features and class. The handling is fantastic but the car tends to focus on the handling aspect and being a sports and performance car it has one down side which is it tends to ride a little hard on the suspension which is fine for me but my partner felt every bump during her pregnancy so a lot of our time was spent in her modest Toyota Corolla as a result until the baby was born.

Cons

fuel comsumption

Overall Great Car If You Can Afford To Run It — Perfomance is awsome, 330kw, handles like a dream for a big car, looks great (pretty much a 4door GTO or Monaro), maintenance and fuel is expensive though. This car really takes off after 80kmph, not too bad off the start if you can get traction. Very impressive and safe car for a everyday driver and for family.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Go Buy A Hsv — It has great acceleration, braking and handling, especially with my Pirelli tyres on it, it is fast and powerful but needs to go faster :P it can be expensive to drive though with petrol and insurance for it, it is very fun to drive :D

Pros

Looks sensational, handles like a dream, goes fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons

Juice guzzler (but what do you expect with a V8)

25

Fantastic Car!!! — The power in the Clubsport is incredible its responsive handles well especially in the wet!!! Only bad part is i had to replace the clutch but the person who owned it before me used to ride it all the time. Beautiful leather inside upspec with binnacles and the short shifter, expensive on the fuel as she likes a drink!!!! All in all its a beautiful piece of machinery!
