2002 Holden VectraReview
Good Power And That's It. — Except for the looks and the power from the 2.2l V4 Turbocharged, there is not much to like about this car. It is very fragile in the engine section and needs a lot of care while driving. It will give good acceleration and can be fun but in every other part, it is a bit of a let-down. Of course, being an European (Opel) car, it costs a lot to maintain and a single small problem costs way too much to be fixed.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Love the power it can generate
Cons: It's fragile and costs a fortune to maintain

There's Better, But This Is Quite A Functional Car, If You're Lucky
A so so car. Good absorption of the road, but lets you roll around corners, more like an SUV. Engine is extremely gruffy at low revs (below 1800), and surprisingly smooth all the way to the red line. ... Read More
