Holden Commodore (VT/VX/VY/VZ) 1997-2007 Review
Although build quality is not great and these models are not without common problems, parts are plentiful and cheap.
The old-tech Ecotec V6 engine fitted to the VT, VX and VY is strong and long-lived, and can survive poor maintenance better than most. Fuel economy is not great.
The Alloytech V6 engine replaced the Ecotec for the VZ series. The new engine can suffer from timing chain problems that requires costly replacement.
The long-lived 5.0-litre Holden V8 was replaced with a larger 5.7-litre Chevrolet-sourced V8 when the VT series II model was introduced. The new engine had issues with oil consumption and other problems.
