Read Another GEN III Heap Of Junk !

All but 1 person i know with a GEN III has had to get it replaced fixed numerous times, but the funny thing is my mother inlaws GEN III in her CV8 has got a wild 'tick tick tick' like it has no oil up the top of the motor at all times, and the trusty holden dealer said it was normal and to keep driving, now they on the 'GEN III Piston Kit' list. I feel really sorry for these people, they are paying in excess of $50'000 and have nothing but grief !!

They will one day see the light !
