VT cooking batteries and chipping paint
Had to get a new battery for my car today after the original Dunlop one has kicked the bucket.
Got an exide 550 cca for $100
The guy who i know quite well told me that he has heaps of VT and VX owners coming to him for new batteries because Holden only use flat metal trays to hold the battery , not the plastic boxes like Ford and the heat from the engine cooks the battery within a year and sometimes 2 years. Mine lasted almost 4 years.
I also went to other battery shops and they all said the same thing
Thank heavens i bought a Ford and not a piece of sh*t HOLDEN.
Where i work, 2 guys have a Holden Calais and a statesmen and they told me that their paint is that thin that you can chip it off with your fingernails. Told that to a friend of mine who works at Holdens in the paint shop and he said they are told to use as little paint as possible to save money.
