Thumbs down Holden Grounds the LS1 Utes!

Holden have started piling up newly built LS1 utes after a faulty batch of fuel pumps turned up. From what is being said there are no utes being scheduled at the moment and all the built cars are being stored until fuel pumps arrive for retrofit.

My mate's ute came off line early this month. It's still there....

Holden has had fuel pump problems for years.

Holden have always made shithouse cars, look no further than the Gemini, Camira, Piazza, VH, VK, VN, VP, VR... It's amazing what decent marketing can do for a manufacturers sales- image is everything.

Re: Holden Grounds the LS1 Utes!

As opposed to the current fords like XF's and XD's... how many of these do you see run down and absolute shit heaps? 90% of them:)

there's nothing wrong with the gemini's either, nice cars and are still going since the late 70s... and as for the commodores, tell me falcons of the same era didnt have their share of problems, be it minor or major.
