Today tonight Story on the 5/3

Thought you guys might like to know, Today Tonight are running a story tomorrow night, 5/3, at 6.30 ch7,on what looks like a couple more largely disgruntled, disatisfied, Commodore customers/owners.Didn't quite catch the blurb,but one is a black ute,possibly ss vx/vy and I just missed the first car which was a bronze sort of shade, Commodore sedan,xx/y,I think,(just caught a glimpse of the "C" pillar) I don,t know what spec it was.Check your guides in other states for TV times,for your info.

hmmm I hate that stupid program with a passion even if they are bagging out Holden.
lowest class of journalism I've ever seen.

Ye gods Holden are having a bad year so far. Unlucky on this one I'd say though. See what it's about but it's probably your average drama's any manufacturer has and some journo has just jumped on the bandwagon.

I am not be-littling the story as you all know there are some problems with some GENIII's, but that program has as much credibility as ACA, in other words...none! More quality Television.
Just watch Mediawatch or even Frontline to get a true take on these shows.

As Brendan said elsewhere if it was on the 7.30 report..then it would be worrying!!

While I agree with these opinions on current affairs programs, i'm still having a cackle over comments and attitude by Ross McKenzie. What a pathetic excuse to say that some people hear unusual noises and are just kicking up a fuss. People have payed $40,000+ for your vehicles dude.....and that sorta stuff shouldnt happen. And 3 engines later...i would be pissed after 1.

He's losing respect at a rapid rate, and that low-respect is rubbing off over Holden. It's not a great deal of motors affected as far as the amount of sales are concerned but as the owners pointed out it's not just the motors, and a lot of dealers have warranty issues booked up....
