2006 HSV GTS Review
Looks Great, Drives Well, Wouldnt Go Back To The Same Dealer, Probably Wont Buy A New Hsv Again — Sloppy suspension system, heavy toeing on tyres (front-outer and rear-inner), car does not come with tyres with 'rim protector edge', Service and warrenty was disappointing. Acceleration is lacking for a car this heavy, brakes are the size they should have been made years ago, sloppy handling on rough corners. Black, with red interior looks great, very dirty when not clean though and cannot hide scratches. The fuel consumption was less than i would have thought, but when you drive like it should be, it does make a dent compared to simple V6's. As far as service goes, these cars do not need a "service" as often as they should, maybe an oil change, THATS IT, anything else holden is ripping customers off, just like GP's in paying full amount for a check-up otherwise not nessasarily needed. Great fun, will not do good around a rough track, ide advise to get the clubby and new suspension, the GTS is all about the badge!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: V8 Fun
Cons: Dealership and minor faults
