i just drove a vt2 with a huge 170,000km. It was so crook. The transmission thumps in 4th for a while b4 it hits 3rd, the door was leaking badly, every window surround was creaking like a , well who knows what, the cruise control was broken, rattles everywhere. An absolute piece of junk.
If you wanted to fix a rattle you wouldn't know where to start.
My mates VS with 140,000 is equally as squeaky.
My ED has absolutely no rattles at 170,000, and i drive it hard, on dirt roads, corrogations, hit gutters sideways etc etc, and its so good it just doesnt even compare. Another friend has an EF with 220,000 that seems as good as new, another one has an EF with 180,000 that is as good as new too.
Has anyone driven a BMW, they are one of the worst cars ever after some harsh Aussie driving. I drove a 96 328, it had just 100,000km and was full of thumps, rattles etc. Just not built for our conditions, just like the Commodore. Only for smooth roads, and city people. Thats what I wreckon. I wouldn't touch anything but a Ford if you want something second hand and you still want something kind of tight.
lets get sideways!!!
