you might find this amussing-- another holden failure

hey everyone,

one of my uncles bought a 2001 holden GENIII statesmen last year (admitidly the thing boots) after sadley trading from a ford
:-(

anyway he has of course had nothing but problems from the thing, continuing with the latest drama....

When you walk out side and its raining, you expect to get into a nice dry car... not in a holden!
He came outside to find his 60 odd thousand dollar car pissing in water, and about 6 inches deep through out the car!!

I tried to look sympathetic, as he swore and carried on how he would never buy another holden!

Geeez i can imagine he'd be cheesed alright for a 60k car to have chronic water leaks. Surely he must get a new car because of that. As they say it's just hold'en it together.
